New Fashion Illustration: A Modern Princess (Making Fashion Illustrations With Acrylic Paints)

Here is a fashion illustration of a red and gold gown. I painted this one without a reference, so it is a fashion design that I've came up with myself. I would love to own a dress like this one. I don't know where I would wear it, but I'd love to own it, because the design is just so glamorous. There is something about this kind of dresses that speaks to most women. Maybe it is all those princess stories we grow up with? I'm getting royal vibes from this dress. Maybe it has to do with colours as well. Crayon yellow, gold and red have both been trending lately. Interesting how this season both pastel and crayon shades are popular, right? Anyhow, I've always loved the combination of red and gold (or yellow). It is such a royal colour combination. I could say the same about blue and silver. Some colours just seem to go well together.

adding finishing touches

The medium is acrylic paints on paper. I've worked on this painting for a few days because there are many layers to it. Originally I had  painted the hair blue but I changed it to green so it wouldn't blend with the background. I had to be careful with the colouring of the dress so that I could convey the shape and the colour of the dress better. There were many layers to this dress but also many details, for example I needed to create a sparkling effect. In addition, I wanted the background to enhance the dress. So, I've put some thought and effort into this one. I'm pretty happy with the result, though. This fashion painting came out nicely. I really do enjoy making fashion art with acrylic paints.  I would say it makes fashion illustrations look more artistic. Since I studied this medium on the art classes I'm taking, I've figured out why not?

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
