Inspired by....... Dolce &Gabbana Spring 2016 collection (fashion illustration of the day- runaway look )

Spring.  Believe it or not, I'm not anxious for Spring to get here. Yes, I find it hard to believe myself but I'm a newfound lover of Winter. The weather has been rather gloomy lately, today being no exception. I haven't been able to take a decent shot in days, but somehow I don't even mind it.  I'm content with the season at hand. However, that doesn't mean  that I don't have my eye open for upcoming trends. That doesn't mean that I'm not thinking about what I will wear this Spring. Speaking of which....

Today I have a new fashion illustration to share with you. Recently I shared an illustration from D&G 2017 collection (here). Today I'm illustrating something from a different collection. It is in fact a runaway look from the last year's collection- but from the same designers. So, I suppose you could say that I like Dolce& Gabbana:). #Italyislove and all that! Does anyone remember D&G Spring 2016 collection? Well, here is a little reminder. The medium is watercolour on paper. Do you like this runaway look? Do you like the illustration?

Proljeće. Vjerovali ili ne, nisam nešto nestrpljiva za dolaskom proljeća. Da, teško mi je i samoj u to povjerovati, ali u meni se probudio ljubitelj zime. Vrijeme je bilo poprilično tmurno u zadnje vrijeme, a današnji dan nije bio nikakva iznimka. Nisam bila u stanju uslikati pristojnu fotografiju danima, ali nekako me to ne smeta. Zadovoljna sam s godišnjim dobom koje je tu. No, to ne znači da ne razmišljam o proljetnim trendovima i o tome što ću nositi ovoga proljeća...A kada smo kod toga...

Danas sa vama dijelim novu modnu ilustraciju. Nedavno sam podijela ilustraciju kreacije iz D&G proljetne kolekcije za 2017.godinu (ovdje). Danas ilustriram nešto iz druge kolekcije. To je zapravo kreacija iz prošlogodišnje kreacije, ali istih kreatora. Moglo bi se reći da mi se sviđa D&G duo.:) #Italyislove i tako to! Sjeća li se itko njihove prošlogodišnje proljetne kolekcije? Evo maloga podsjetnika. Medij su vodene boje na papiru? Sviđa li vam se ova kreacija? Sviđa li vam se ilustracija?

Unfortunately, while I was touching up this illustration, I somehow managed to ruin it. More or less. I'll see if I salvage it tomorrow. But that is the difference between digital art and art on paper. When it comes to paper, there is no 'undo' option. All it takes it a second and everything you worked on gets ruined. When that error happened, I was annoyed. However, then I thought to myself: 'What is the big deal? I'll draw a new one.'

That got me thinking. In life we can't always fix what we mess up. Nevertheless, we can always start again. Always. Scarlet O'Hara got that part right. Tomorrow is a new day. Always. In life nothing lasts for ever anyway. We lose everything, sooner or later. No amount of effort can bring us exactly what we wanted at the exact time we want it- and sometimes it is for the better because we often don't know what is good for us. At the end of the day, we either tried to do our best or we didn't. Deep inside, we always know which one is the case. Perhaps that is all that it matters.

Nažalost, dok sam dovršavala ovu ilustraciju, nekako sam je uspjela upropastiti. Više manje. Vidjet ću mogu li je spasiti sutra. To je razlika između digitalnog slikanja i slikanja na papiru. Kada je papir u pitanju, nema 'poništi' opcije. Sve što je potrebno je sekunda i sve na čemu ste radili se upropasti. Kada mi se ova greška dogodila, iživcirala sam se. Onda sam se zamislila i pitala sebe u čemu je stvar, mogu jednostavno nacrtati novu.

To me zamislilo. U životu ne možemo uvijek popraviti nešto što zaprskamo. Međutim, možemo uvijek početi iznova. Uvijek. Scarlet O'Hara je tu bila u pravu. Sutra je novi dan. Uvijek. U životu ionako ništa ne traje zauvijek. Sve izgubimo, prije ili kasnije. Nikakva količina truda ne može nam donijeti točno ono što želimo u točnom trenutku u kojem to želimo- a ponekad je tako i bolje jer često i ne znamo što je dobro. Na kraju dana, ili smo pokušali najbolje što smo mogli ili nismo. To zapravo  znamo samo mi, negdje duboko u nama. Možda je samo to i važno.

  10. Točno to, svaki dan nam nudi priliku za neki novi početak i sitne greške po putu ne treba promatrati fatalistički već kao priliku da iz njih nešto naučimo o sebi i stvarima kojima se bavimo :) Ja volim pratiti tvoje ilustracije još od samih početaka i baš fino napreduješ, a najviše od svega se iz svake vidi koliko uživaš u procesu crtanja - samo naprijed! :D

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
