Fashion illustration of the day- Inspired By Spring (hairstyle/ swimsuit/ colours)

I don't do hairstyle illustration that often, but hairdos are definitely an important part of my fashion illustrations.  When I draw fashion illustration, I do pay attention to hair. Often it is something I will try to coordinate  with an outfit I'm illustrating. Typically, I will pay attention not just to the hairstyle, but to hair colour as well. Some fashion illustrators (be they hobby or professional illustrators) draw only clothes, some (like myself) like to focus on every possible details. I'm a hobby illustrator, but I do put in a lot of effort and time into my fashion illustrations. I like to consider everything. It is quite possible that I will take up hairstyle illustrating as well. It wouldn't be surprisingly since hairstyles are something I enjoy drawing. Today my hairstyle preposition is one for short hair. I have long hair, but I love short hair hairdos.


HAIRSTYLE ILLUSTRATIONS

Where to look for inspiration? I don't need to look far. I'm inspired by everything. Sometimes I find an old drawing and I decide to make new drawings based of it. When I start drawing I usually get tons of idea and one thing leads to another. Right now, I'm mostly inspired by Spring. If you scroll down, you'll see two new drawings (medium coloured pencil on paper), inspired by an old drawing (medium pencil on paper).















SWIMSUIT ILLUSTRATION 


I have one more thing to share and that is a swimsuit illustration. At least I think it is a swimsuit illustration. I suppose it could also be seen as a lingerie illustration. Anyhow, it depicts a very classical kind of design that I like a lot.  I didn't use any reference for this illustration, but this design is so common, I can't really say I invented it either. The medium for this one is pencil on paper. Feel free to imagine it in colour if want. Although, if I were to actually sew this design (where does one buy materials for swimsuits?) I would probably opt for black. I'm a big fan of colourful swimsuits, but I also really like the appeal of a classical black two piece swimsuit. Plus, you are less likely to be attacked by a shark that way. Sharks are attracted to vibrant colours. Not that I know why anyone would want to go swimming in shark infested areas. That's all for today! Have a lovely shark free day!

  6. Secondo me molti illustratori evitano di disegnare i capelli perchè sono davvero difficili da rendere bene!
    Ci vuole tanta pratica ma vale comunque la pena imparare a disegnarli, personalmente sono una delle cose che preferisco disegnare e colorare!
    Sempre belle ed originali le tue illustrazioni, Ivana!
    Baci!

  8. You must be filled with inspiration right now with a new season (finally!) blossoming! I love your pencil illustration of the girl with long hair wearing lingerie; I love drawing lingerie in my spare time - although of course I'm not very good haha! Hope you're having a lovely week so far Ivana :)

  10. Unfortunately we live in a world like this, where nobody respects anybody. If we're influencers for a few things, so that we may be for others, too. I don't think anyone is able to tolerate faults but education is what you see today.
    Thanks for letting me read it that way. As always. Thanks a lot!

    I think I've said it more than once, but your drawings are getting better. You've been perfecting the technique, and you can see it all along. I'm very pleased to have the picture you made on my bedroom wall. Keep going!

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…
