Inspired by....Fashionably Idu, Tijana Abejita and Jointy & Croissanty

The best thing about blogging, for me, is finding so many inspiring women. Women that are beautiful inside & out. That is how my Inspired by feature was born. As someone who blogs and creates art on daily basis, it seemed only natural to create a feature in which I would publish my illustrations of bloggers who inspire me. It is a sort of a blog recommendation, only a bit more personal. I typically publish my Inspired by feature monthly. Last month some unexpected events took me out of the country and messed up with my blogging schedule a little. I know that not being able to blog  for 3 days is not the end of the world, but I keep a tight blogging schedule so when sometimes like that happens, it can cause me to miss out on a regular feature. Anyhow, to make up for not being able to publish my Inspired by feature last month, I prepared not one but three illustrations for you today!!! I'm really excited about sharing these ones with you.


 Today I illustrated bloggers from Fashionably Idu and Jointy &Croissanty as well as Tijana from @tijanabejita. The medium for all of these illustration is coloured pencils on paper. I got up really really early in the morning to be able to get these done. I would say that each illustration took me about a half an hour give or take. Together they took me about two hours to make. I'm trying up to speed up my drawing speed. Sometimes it is good practice, sometimes it can be distracting. Like with any kind of skill development, sometimes it is a try and error thing. You learn to speed up things, and then you might realize that some things might take more time, but still the practice might have been useful. Anyhow, that's about it as far as the medium and the technique concerned. I'm constantly working a lot of developing my art skills and trying out new things in the process.










 The outfits I illustrated are really cute, don't you agree? I love the sheer and ruffled shirt Idu is wearing, paired with that vintage Chanel belt it looks both fashion forward and put together...and what to say about those cobalt palazzo pants? Aren't they gorgeous? When it comes to Tijana's outfit, I coloured it a bit darker than it really us just because white pencil doesn't show on white paper. Originally the dress Tijana is wearing is white, but on my drawing it is more gray than white.  The final outfit is also very cute. I love the contrast between the black top and cap and the girly skirt. It's a great summer urban look, that is at the same time very feminine. Gorgeous outfits, all three of them. Scroll down to see both the finish version and the 'making of' photographs.

  2. Glad you were able to pick back up and still share some illustrations after a blog break of a few days! :) I usually write all my blog posts in advance and it works well, but I've fallen behind and I'm not quite 2 weeks ahead. I'd love to be back to being 3 weeks ahead in posting, but not sure when I'll catch back up to that, haha!


    Hope that you're having a great week so far! :)

  3. I must say that I truly enjoy you taking the time to illustrate your favorite bloggers. Using color pencils as a medium is pretty fun and one that I see you gravitate to time and time again. I really love the details in the outfits of the girls and my favorite would be JointyCroissanty's illustration because it seems hard with the dark color scheme but you made it work somehow! Thank you for always inspiring me dear - I cannot wait to show you my beginner's take on nail polish art :D xo

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.

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. …

HOW TO WEAR MORE WHITE IN WINTER IN FIVE SIMPLE STEPS

It seems that white in winter is a real trend nowadays. Nobody lives following that rule 'no white after labor day' anymore. Today I've prepared some style tips and outfit information for you, because I do believe that white can be a great way to refresh our winter style. I'll be happy if I inspire you to give white a try. Anything from a white bag to white shoes can make your winter outfits more fun. So, why not give this lovely colour a chance? Here are my five easy steps to start wearing more white in winter right now. Most of these don't even require you do any shopping as I'm sure you'll be able to find at least some of these items in your closet. Sometimes it is all about reexamining what we already have in our closets. 


1. START WITH ACCESSORIES 

If you find wearing white overwhelming, you can always try baby steps. Start with white shoes (super trendy right now) and/or bag and move from there. Next thing you can do is try other white accessories, su…

READING UPDATE, NEW FINDS: MARIO VARGAS LLOSA AND RAGNAR JONASSON

I did a lot of reading this January& February. I even discovered two new authors that I plan to follow more closely, so I'm really happy about that. The same thing happened last year, if I remember correctly. There is something about the start of the new year that makes me motivated to read even more. As Asimov wisely said, self-education is best education. Not that I don't believe in formal education. I've spent a lot of money and time on my formal education. I've also invested in different courses and workshops. It is always easier to study with a good teacher. As someone who has worked as a teacher, I can see many benefits of standard education. However, it is also important to work on our education ourselves because we are the ones who know ourselves best (or at least we should) so we know on what areas we should work on. The way I interpret Asimov words is not a critique of formal education, but a call for continuous education. I'm a strong believer that …
