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.

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 …
