Madonna Fan Art
Justify My Love
Justify My Love is one of my favourite Madonna singles. It wasn’t really an obvious choice for a single release at the time but it worked so well. Then of course, there is the amazing promotional video which accompanies the song.
I’ve always loved the image which was used to promote the single. Smoking is an awful habit but there is no getting away from a certain air it gives to an image. I love the lips in this shot too and the eye makeup is wonderfully reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe.
I did not want to just create a straight copy of the image. Like all my fan art, I hoped to bring something of myself to it. Smooth skin tones are contrasted against the rougher rendering on the leather and the background. The paper used here is very slightly textured.
The medium here is Caran D’Ache Luminance pencils. These are wax based pencils and are the finest quality. They are certainly the best rated for lightfastness of any such pencil on the market. These pencils will not fade.
