THE WORLD OF PENCIL- FRIENDSHIP / SVIJET OLOVKE- PRIJATELJSTVO (#1)

I've been working with pencil a lot lately. In fact, with all the drawing I've been doing, it has come to the point where my right hand hurts rather badly. Not that it is a serious problem, I'm sure that my hand will recover as soon as I give it some rest. Anyhow, today I'm posting a drawing that I have been working on forever. I was trying to strike a balance between realistic and 'my style'. How did I do? I'm not sure. Some of you said you find the 'painting/drawing process' interesting, so I've decided to include 'before' and 'after' photograph, even if the difference in this case is a subtle one.  S


U zadnje vrijeme sam dosta radila s olovkom. Zapravo, uza sve to crtanje došla sam to točke u kojoj me desna ruka poprilično boli. Ne da je to neki ozbiljan problem, sigurna sam da će mi se ruka oporaviti čim ju malo odmorim.Uglavnom, danas objavljujem crtež na kojem sam dugo radila, pokušavajući postići ravnotežu između realističnoga stila i nečega što bi trebao biti moj stil. Kako mi je to pošlo za rukom? Nisam sigurna. Neki od vas su rekli da vam je zanimljiv proces nastanka slike, tako da sam odlučila uključiti prije i poslije fotografiju, čak i ako je razlika u ovom slučaj suptilna.

FINISHED DRAWING

Here is what the finished drawing looks like. At least I think it's finished. I might change my mind and decide that it needs touching up. Btw in case you're wondering, these girls don't really exist, or rather they exist but only in my imagination. I wasn't drawing anyone in particular this time. Have a lovely day!

DOVRŠEN CRTEŽ

Ovako izgleda završen crtež. Barem mislim da je završen. Možda promijenim mišljenje i odlučim da ga treba malo doraditi. Usput, ako se pitate, ove djevojke nisu stvarne, postoje ali samo u mojoj mašti. Nisam crtala nikoga posebnoga ovaj put. Ugodan dan svima želim!

  8. How beautiful, dear Ivana, and I am loving your latest illustrations in pencil! I think that illustrations in pencil have something really pure about it, really "honest" and I really love them, they seem "deep" to me. I really loved the two ladies and you are always so talented! Hope you have a lovely day, dear Ivana, with more illustrations!

  9. The thing I like the most is the hand, because it`s so long. It was the thing that caught my eye. I like the picture overall, I think you did nice work. I like the unrealistic aspect of it the most, but that is just my taste, I like surreal and unrealistic :)

    1. thank you so much. I actually thought about shortening the hand, but then I decided to keep it long because I like surreal things too. Thank you for noticing:)

  11. A me piace molto disegnare solo a matita (o a carboncino) perchè rende il chiaro-scuro al meglio, davvero credo sia la tecnica che più di tutti si presta a "prendere la mano" con la resa di luci ed ombre e relative sfumature!
    ed hai ragione, questo tipo di disegno è un work in progress continuo, magari lo ritrovi tra due mesi e decidi di cambiare le luci dei capelli o delle labbra, non finisce mai! ^^
    Comunque hai fatto davvero un'ottimo lavoro, mi piace tantissimo la scelta del soggetto, il ritratto non è una sfida facile ma tu l'hai superata brillantemente! :D
    Baci!

    1. si, hai ragione...con solo a matita possiamo rendere il chiaro-scuro meglio....io devo ancora practicare questa tecnica...e si...perche dobbiamo finire un dipinto o un disegno?...forse in due mesi, ho una relazione nuova e voglio cambiare qualcosa...e perche no?

      grazie!

  12. I can definitely see the elements of your personal drawing style combined with 'realism' as you say; and the outcome is lovely! Speaking of which, I really love how you have an identifiable drawing style of your own Ivana, it's very special :) I hope you're having a great week so far - fingers crossed for plenty of sunshine!!

  15. Divan, divan crtež - možda jedan od tvojih najljepših i najemotivnijih dosad! Sviđaju mi se radovi s olovkom, baš ih je fino vidjeti malo za promjenu i mislim da ti baš odlično pristaju! :)

  16. Meni je fascinantno baš to što se uvek primećuje tvoj stil, a opet svaka od devojaka (bila ona stvarna ili izmišljena) zadržava nešto svoje što je čini unikatnom. Sviđa mi se i rad sa olovkom i rekla bih da ti takođe ide od ruke, mada s druge strane, kojeg god medija da se uhvatiš, vidi se da znaš šta i kako ;)

  17. Get well soon. May be time to rest.

  18. This drawing of these two women are excellent. The woman on the right looks a little bit like the model Bella Hadid.

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. 








DIY PROJECTS 
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…
