My illustrations of the day / Moje ilustracije dana

Today I'm sharing four illustrations with you.  Two of them are fashion illustrations and the other two are portraits. The first 3 were illustrated with just an eyeliner, but the last one is illustrated with an eyeliner and eye shadow. Earlier this month, I posted a FAQ post about drawing/illustrating/painting with make up (read it here).  If you have any questions about using make up for painting, crafts or DIY feel free to ask. If you have any personal experience and advice about alternative uses for make up, please share them in the comments. I'm no expert myself, but I've been using make up to paint a lot lately so I wanted to share my experience with you. That is all for today. Thank you for reading.

Danas s vama dijelim četiri ilustracije. Dvije su modne ilustracije, a druge dvije su portreti. Prve tri su ilustrirane samo s tušem (u obliku gela) za oči, a za zadnju sam koristila i tuš i sjenilo za oči. Ranije ovoga mjeseca, napisala sam objavu s čestim pitanjima i odgovorima o slikanju, crtanju i ilustriranju sa šminkom (pročitajte je ovdje).Imate li pitanja o korištenju šminke za slikanje, hobije ili napravi sam projekte, slobodno pitajte. Ako imate neka osobna iskustva i savjete o alternativnom korištenju šminke, molim vas da ih podijelite u komentarima. Nisam ni ja neki stručnjak, ali sam u zadnje vrijeme dosta koristila šminku za slikanje, pa sam htjela podijeliti svoja iskustva s vama. To je sve za danas. Hvala na čitanju.

  3. It's really cool how you created these artworks with eyeliner. I would imagine it has a different feel and texture from using traditional art media but it also share similar qualities as well. These are lovely!

    1. yes, the texture is very different and the end result kind of reminds me of charcoal.

  5. Predivne su ti, baš imaju nešto jako emotivno i prodorno u licima, čisti užitak za gledanje! Svaka ti čast, znam da sam rekla već sto puta, ali naprosto moram ponoviti - sve si bolja i bolja, baš uživam gledati svaku novu ilustraciju! :)

    1. Hvala ti puno, drago mi je što ti se sviđaju...u zadnje vrijeme pokušavam nekako napraviti više sa manje, uhvatiti neki izraz lica s samo malo crtanja.

  13. Hello Ivana :) I love your illustrations, dear, it's amazing thing that you decide to make them in different way - using makeup products was great decision, because it makes your masterpieces more special and you, my dear - you're really innovative :) What about your illustrations, I really like especially the last one - that lady in little black dress looks divine!
    Hope you're started great week, dear! :)

  15. Those are beautiful, Ivana and now I feel foolish for throwing away my old gel liner. I could have used it to experiment with drawing, there's no wastage.

  21. Hello dearest Ivana, I like your drawings! I think I never tried to draw with eyliner (but I remember I painted a picture with eyeshaddow and lipstick when I was a young girl – to demonstrate the colors I’ve bought ;o)) My favourite picture is the last one because it seems to tell a story - you also wrote a text in italian language and drew a landscape with a church – I love such compositions! And I like the dress the girl's wearing!

    Lots of hugs my dear and have a happy time,

  25. E' bello vedere come un'artista non si ferma davanti a nulla per esprimersi usando davvero quello che ha a disposizione, in questo caso prodotti per make up. I disegni sono espressivi ed i petali di rosa donano eleganza e raffinatezza alla tua arte. Complimenti davvero

  32. Dear Ivana, it is unbelievable how creative you are and that you use even makeup for fantastic illustrations! Love all of them! The eyeliner and the eyeshadow, too, are giving your illustrations a very special touch. Thanks for sharing - it is only a pity I'm not talented for such drawings so I can't use my eyeliners in this context :)

  35. Wow, dear Ivana, always so talented! I loved all the illustrations, but especially the last one! I like that you are using eyeliners or makeup in general for the illustrations, this is really very creative! And I know you are creative AND talented! A beautiful soul, in fact! I used to use eye shadows in paintings, long time ago, and then spray something to fix the color, but for manu years I haven't use makeup for painting, anymore. You brought that nice memory to me again, thank you so much for sharing these beautiful illustrations! Hope you have a very nice week!

  36. Thank you so much for sharing your drawings! I love the way that you are drawing with makeup. The colors are very lovely, and the eyeliner is dramatic. I have an art degree for quite some time now, but I'm very shy so it's hard for me to show my drawings!

  39. Mislim da ni profesionalni šminkeri nisu svesni šta se sve može sa šminkom :) Ti si spojila toliko umetnosti i zanata u jedno. Mnogo mi se sviđa kad staviš i neki detalj poput latica ruža u ovom slučaju. Toliko je sve divno da prosto ne znam više kojim rečima da te nahvalim :)

    1. pa možda i nisu jer je šminkanje na koži i papiru posve drukčije...ja se zapravo divim profesionalnim šminkerima jer rade na neravnom i živom terenu, svako lice je drukčije i uvijek moraju improvizirati.

  40. Mislim da ovo slikanje šminkom daje dojam nekog spoja ugljena i pastele i izgleda jako lijepo i puno "jače" nego npr. vodene boje ili olovka. Mislim da bi se ti snašla s ugljenom... Talent je neminovan, sada je sve u isprobavanju i eksperimentiranju. Svaka čast, ilustracije su prekrasne! :*

    1. da, zanimljiva je ova tehnika (ako se može nazvati tehnikom jer tek to razvijam) i mene baš podsjeća na ugljen i pastelu.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…

INSPIRED BY.....NATALIA LIALINA

Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

FASHION ILLUSTRATION: ZUHAIR MURAD'S BLUE GOWN FROM 2019 COUTURE COLLECTION

Hello, darlings! I'm back two fashion illustration of one Zuhair Murad dress. This blue gown is so beautiful I simply had to illustrate it twice. It makes me think of the sea, the mermaids and basically the good old 'day at the beach' vibes. There is something so liberating about spending time by the ocean, isn't there? I grew up in a coastal town, and I do miss the sea terribly. However, that is surely not the only reason why I loved this dress so much. You know, when I think Zuhair Murad the first thing that comes to my mind is- haute couture. I feel he is one of those designers who were simply meant to make couture. Do you know what I mean? Murad's designs are always so exquisite, glam and elegant. I do like his ready-to-wear collections, but there is just something about his haute couture collections that makes them stand out in the sea of others. 
 I already illustrated a dress by this designer (here), and with the fashion week on its way, I opted for somethi…
