Inspired by......fashion illustrations inspired by fashion bloggers: 2017 edition (pencil, watercolour, acrylics)




Inspired by is one of favourite features on this blog. I had to give it up while I was sick (just like everything else), but I hope I will be able to return to it next year. This year I have illustrated a lot of lovely bloggers. Therefore, I decided to do a little recap, and I hope that you'll enjoy it. I  have worked hard on my illustrating skills this year, I've tried some new mediums and generally speaking I've spent a lot of time trying to make art. This also reflected on my blog, and posting art became a regular thing (apart from the time I was in hospital & recovering, but then I obviously wasn't posting anything at all). I've divided illustrations into groups based on the medium that I used because I think it looks more neat that way (and some of you might want to know more about mediums employed).

3 WATERCOLOUR 'INSPIRED BY' ILLUSTRATIONS (PAOLA, NICOLETA, LERA)

Working with watercolour is always lovely, but I do still feel that I have a lot to learning to do when it comes to this medium. Looking at these three fashion paintings, it seems to me that my aquarelle painting style has changed a bit. I guess that that my fashion illustration style changed as well so maybe that is that. I'm looking forward to working more with watercolour in the next year.

                         4 PENCIL ILLUSTRATIONS
                             (BARBARA, JESSI, TIJANA & MARGOT)

Pencil fashion illustration is somewhat new to me, but I like the simplicity of it. I might employ it more in the future. I have certainly done a lot of pencil drawing this year. I must say that the elegance of the eternal black and white colour scheme is really starting to appeal to me. This year there were 4 pencil illustrations in my Inspired by feature. To see them, scroll down.

                                      2 COLOURED PENCIL ILLUSTRATIONS (IDU)


Colour pencil is a medium I'm still warming up to. This year I did two illustrations of Idu, but somehow I only managed to post one on my blog (I wasn't able to find the other one). You can see the other one on my Instagram profile. Colour pencil is surprisingly time consuming, believe it, or not, it took me about 6 hours to make these little illustrations.

                                     2 MARKER ILLUSTRATIONS (PORCELANNA & LUCCIA) 

Using markers for fashion illustration is another thing that is relatively new to me. I think this was the first year that I have actually used markers to do Inspired by fashion illustrations. As you can see, I did two of those. I also did a ton of marker drawing, I shared some of it on my blog and Instagram. I haven't tried copic markers yet, though. Everyone is saying that I should, but you know these things are pricey and money doesn't grow on trees. Most people don't understand that art supplies actually cost money, in some cases, a lot of money. Besides, what puts me off from working with copic markers is that everyone is doing it and what I'm trying to do is to do my own thing.

                               2 ACRYLIC PAINTINGS (TIJANA & IVANA)

I love working with acrylic and oil paints. I took 3 art courses (something I will write more about in the future). Anyway, while doing those I was focused mostly on acrylic and oil painting. So, it is no wonder I opted for acrylics for my Inspired by feature as well. I love how arty these two fashion paintings look. I do plan to continue using

What do you my dear readers think? Do you like my Inspired by feature? Should I keep it a regular feature on my blog? Do you think I should try something else? If yes, what might that be? Thank you all for reading. Have a lovely day!

  2. Ivana, thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog a few times recently. I've somehow failed to do the same and I apologize for that. I was sorry to hear that you have been ill and have been recovering for a while. I.hope you are fully better now.

    I have always enjoyed the creativity and variety of your fashion illustrations and seen how they have developed as you hone your skills. It is great that you have tried different mediums, they are certainly effective! I definitely like your acrylics and oils best but I think you have excelled I'm all. Art supplies ARE expensive, I agree! It takes a good deal of money to get the variety of colours and types.
    I hope you have a wonderful new year.x

RED ACCENTS FOR WINTER (LUNAR YEAR OUTFIT IDEAS)

For me, the red is the colour of love, good luck and passion. With Lunar Year Festivities and Valentine's Day being just around the corner, it is the perfect time to start embracing and wearing red. How to wear red in the winter? Now, it doesn't have to be a red from head to toe outfit. If you're not confident enough to rock the all red look or you don't want to invest into red clothing items, you can always start small and opt for red accessories such as scarves, leggings/tights, hats, bags, shoes and etc. Moreover, you can embrace red with your beauty options. The bold red lip look will never get old. A nice red manicure is always a classic. If you're bold enough, you can even try embracing the red eye-shadow trend.  HOW TO WEAR RED ACCENTS IN WINTER?

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…

HOW TO STYLE A BROWN FAUX LEATHER COAT?

Today I'll show you a couple of ways to start a brown faux leather/ faux fur coat. We'll start with a more dressed up version. Now, this brown coat comes with a faux fur hoodie and that gives it more of a casual vibe, similar to that of a parka jacket. So, I decided to dressed it up with accessories (always the best way to dress up an item). I paired this coat with predominately black accessories: a pair of stilettos, a bag, a pair of earrings and a headband. I also wore a statement necklace. The dress I was wearing under the coat was a simple grey dress (bought at Terranova some time ago), so I wasn't afraid to pile on the accessories.  Scroll down to see and read more.  DIY HEADBAND PROJECT: HOW I HAND SEWED THE FLORAL APPLICATIONS You already had the chance of seeing this DIY headband many times, but it's been a whole since I showed you how I actually made it.
