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

  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.

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

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…

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
