Illustrating a Runaway Look From Miu Miu Autumn Winter 2018 Collection (Fashion Illustration of the Day: Watercolour)


Today I'm sharing with you a new fashion illustration of mine. The medium is pencil and watercolour on paper. I illustrated a look from Miu Miu Autumn Winter 2018 collection. Miuccia Bianchi Prada is a very talented designer and I for one have always loved her designs. Perhaps the devil does wear Prada (who knows?), but that shouldn't stop us from admiring this brand. Miuccia's collections never disappoint, but this one was particularly eye-catching. This Miu Miu collection was so bold and beautiful that I simply had to illustrate a look from it. I opted to illustrate this black midi dress with a bold yellow lettering. Scroll down if you want to see the painting process and read my thoughts on this collection.

Illustrating this dress was a lot of fun. I'm really not an expert when it comes to watercolour, I'm much more knowledgeable about oil and acrylic paints but I'm going to share my painting process just in case someone is interested. Perhaps those who know more about watercolour will say that I'm doing it all wrong, I really don't know that much. There are so many mediums in painting and perhaps it is not possible to be equally good in all of them. I mostly use watercolours to work on my fashion illustrations.  

Anyhow, here it goes. This is the first layer of paint. Before I had started applying watercolour paint, I made a sketch in pencil. I wanted to catch the model in mid walk, to make it look like one leg is just about to step down, I'm not sure have I managed to do that, but that's what I was going for.

I didn't base this illustration so much on the photograph as on the video I saw. It is easier for me to illustrate clothes when I see them 'in motion'. This is why I usually look for collections in YouTube. It is not always possible to accurate asses materials just from photographs. When I watch collections I usually mute the videos. I know that music is supposed to be an important part of a fashion show, but I prefer to see the clothes in silence. I'm not sure why, that's just how I am.

If you're wondering about the watercolour brand, I honestly don't know. I got this one at the art course, and I didn't remember to ask. I might invest a bit more into watercolours once I feel like I'm getting better at all this aquarelle thing. I will probably continue to make fashion illustratuions in this media, but I will probably continue to use other mediums as well.

I wish I knew the name of the model, she's gorgeous. Why don't they list the names of the models who walk the fashion shows? Unless they're famous or you know them by face, it is really hard to find out the names of models who walk the shows. Or maybe there is some place where you can look for it? I don't know. So, if you know the name of this model let me know so that I can name her.

Bellow you can see how this illustration looks like with a second layer of paint. After the first layer of paint dried, I added the yellow lettering. Once that second layered dried, I added another layer of paint and finishing touches. At least I think I did. I'm not sure is this fashion illustration really finished or not. I like how it looks, I prefer it to other I made recently but I change my mind a lot. Sometimes it seems to me that my art is terrible or even worse mediocre, sometimes I love it. It's a constant struggle, but it is also a lot of fun.

I'm so in love with this collection. I feel like it's  quintessentially British, even if it's actually Italian and the Italian influences are clearly there.  Maybe it is a mix of the two that appeals to me so much.  It makes me think of the sixties and seventies, of Beatles and David Bowie. The new Miu Miu girl seems to be quite strongly unapologetic and fabulously fashion forward. My kind of girl. What do you think? Have you seen this Autumn Winter Miu Miu collection? Do you like it? I will totally wear these designs as soon as I win the lottery.

 Illustrating a Runaway Look From Miu Miu Autumn Winter 2018 Collection (Fashion Illustration of the Day: Watercolour)


Lately, I've been experimenting with digital editing of my art. Here I added some stickers to my illustration. Black and yellow combo often makes me think of bugs. Maybe that is why I love them so much. Have I ever told you that I love bugs? I don't like spiders, but techically speaking spiders aren't bugs. Yes, spiders are not insects, they are arachnids (managed to spelled it from second attempt!). The thing with black and yellow is that it offers a very strong contrast. A contrast that I personally love.

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. …
