Making of a Fashion Illustration: A Girl In a Transparent Blue Dress

Today just a quick post, as I'm only going to share my fashion illustration with you. The painting process was fairly simple. First I sketched this girl with a pencil, then I filled it in with watercolours. I added the finishing touches with markers and then I added another layer of watercolour to blend the watercolour and markers. You'll be able to see a part of the painting process, if you choose to scroll down. In addition, I made a tutorial collage explaining this painting in 4 steps, just in case that you would like to copy this design of mine or make your own fashion illustration in a similar style.  I'm not a professional fashion illustrator so I can't teach you how to make professional fashion illustrations, but as a hobby artist I can (and will) share my painting process with you. Why not? As long as I'm on this subject, I'll also say a few words about my motivation for this illustration. I wasn't motivated by anything in particular, just spring in general. I like polka dots and I do like the transparent trend, so why not join the two? Are you excited about the spring? I'm both excited and apprehensive about it, but I'll share my reasons for  my love-hate relationship with this season some other time.

I drew this girl from my head, I didn't use a reference. It was only after that I had drawn the dress that I thought it would look cute if she was holding pineapples. I drew the pineapples from my head (again without a reference) but when I drew them I remembered that I have some pineapples at home, so I ate a few slices of pineapple. I really shouldn't eat any fresh fruit (only boiled fruit) but sometimes it is hard to resist. Anyhow, I ate a bit of pineapple, took some photographs and today I'm sharing it all with you. How do you like this fashion illustration? I think it turned out alright, perhaps even managing to capture all those 'spring is in the air' positive vibes and all that. Not that I feel like that myself, but it is good to know that I can at least illustrate it. I honestly don't know where all this inspiration is coming from, it is like all these paintings and ideas are materializing from thin air. Sometimes I don't even have the feeling like that I'm painting them. Sometimes I feel like they have a life of their own. Is it bizarre to feel like that? Is it some kind of hobby artist burnout (but then why I keep making more art?) or is this feeling somehow completely unrelated to my art? I don't know.

  5. What a lovely painting of a girl holding pineapples in her two hands. I enjoy your creative expression as it reminds me of how I used to paint and draw when I was younger. In art, I feel, we can reunite with the flow and what you described as the feeling is something I can relate. We get into that creative flow and I feel that in that moment, we become one with Life and art comes out freely. My mom is crazy about pineapples, she ate quite a lot one season and had to reduce her intake because it can cause stomach upset. I hope you will enjoy Spring and share with us more of your art projects :D Have a beautiful day! xoxo

  10. You are very talented, and I love your artistic method.
    Your artistic creation is beautiful - my imagination is now fully engaged! :)
    I love the colour and design of the lingerie underneath and of the sheer dress. It is beautifully conceived and rendered.
    As a lingerie aficionado I'm in heaven seeing sheer couture in designers collections on the runways in fashion shows, being seen worn on the streets, and worn by bloggers in their fashion posts.
    I wish I could get up the courage to wear a gorgeous sheer fashion design like the one from your artwork on the streets of Manhattan myself.
    I love it even more than the majority of sheer couture I've been seeing recently in the collections of famous designers.

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.

TOP CROATIAN DESTINATIONS: TROGIR CITY (PART 1)

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…

HOW TO WEAR THE SCARF TREND FOR SPRING? 4 BASIC WAYS

Are you ready to jump on board the scarf trend? My outfit proposal is all about the foulard. I matched my outfit with the colours of the foulard I was wearing, opting to wear a red blazer, a black pair of cord jeans and a blue turtleneck. It is a simple and comfy styling that made me feel quite chic. It is always good to have an outfit formula to fall back one for those days you don't have much time. One of the easiest ways to elongate your figure is by opting for a pair of high waist jeans and a cropped blazer (or jacket). If you wear a pair of heels with this combo, you'll appear even taller. Not saying that anyone should do that, but if you want to elongate your look, this is a simple and easy way to do it. Blazers and wide cut pants are always a chic combo, and a scarf will add something to every outfit. 




ACCESSORIZING WITH SCARVES
A great thing about a scarf is that it is an accessory that can be worn in a number of ways. I've prepared a little visual guide for you t…

CROATIAN FASHION WEEK: MATEYANEIRA FASHION ILLUSTRATION IN WATERCOLOUR

I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…
