365 Mujeres Ilustradas

In 2018, I was invited to participate in «365 Mujeres Ilustradas», an online illustration project managed by a team of women from Argentina. The project is a channel to embrace the paper of women al along the history in all the fields (science, art, music, politics, litterature…).
I made a tribute to US soccer player Abby Wambach.
Here it goes the process:

First, the original in pencil. Then I made a copy in the photocopier to add the colour details
Details for the background. Number 20 was hers’ in football team
I didn’t use this script for the final piece
Final art in RGB

Abby Wambach was a soccer player from USA, she’s retired nowadays. She was born 2nd June 1980. She used to play as a striker, won two olympic medals in 2004 and 2012 and she’s the highest-scoring woman worldwide.
Such a pleasure to make her eternal!
