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

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.

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 



AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …
