This images are from a shoot I did a few years ago. This first image is now my twitter background & several people have requested a tutorial for this look so I've finally done it. 

  Photography & Artwork by Bisa

I took inspiration from these 'African Queen' illustrations I remember seeing as a child. I have no idea who the artist is, but I was always drawn to these images. 
I love the regal gentleness of these women. Their expressions & poses embody both beauty, strength & vulnerability.

This is a still from the tutorial
