Urban Fashion Illustration: Pretty in Pink ( A Brunette in a Pink Dress)

To start with, here comes  my new fashion illustration of the day. A Brunette in a Pink Dress is a mixed media painting. For most part it's a watercolour painting but I added some finishing touches with the coloured pencils. The painting was inspired by Autumn, the beautiful season we are currently enjoying. If you look closely, you'll see that I've also painted puddles. A bit of the black watercolour  paint I is spilling from the illustrated cowboy boots, but that's how imagined it. 


Mixed Media Fashion Illustration 


As the title suggests, the painting depicts a girl wearing a pink dress. There is a bit of layering going on. What is she wearing over her pink shirt dress? Why, a warm vest. Autumn is all about layering. Our illustrated girl also choose to wear dark brown tights and black cowboy boots. She is also holding a bouquet of flowers. How to Wear a shirt dress in Autumn? This would be my illustrated answer. Pair it with leggings or tights and cowboy boots, and you've got yourself an unique and pretty outfit. I do like how this fashion illustration turned out. I was going for a slightly artistic feel to it, with a blurry urban background. I must say I'm quite happy with how it turned out.




How is Autumn treating you? Are you ready for Winter? Today it's so sunny that Winter seems far away, but I'm sure it'll arrive in a heartbeat. At the moment, I'm enjoying this picturesque  season (whenever  I'm not terribly ill that is) and one of the things I love about this season is the ability to pick wild pomegranate. Yes, you've read that right.  There are even some wild pomegranates growing near my house. In fact, a pomegranate is one of the symbols of Herzegovina.  One of the definite advantages of living in a Mediterranean climate is being able to buy (or pick) all kinds of delicious fruits. Scroll down to see a cute tiny pomegranate I picked today. 


Because I quite liked this painting, I made it available in my Zazzle shop in the form of various products. I like the idea of fashion illustrations printed on clothing items. If you recall, I ordered one such tote bag this Summer and was quite happy with it. I ended up gifting it to my aunt. It was certainly interesting to see my fashion illustrations being worn in this form. I already wrote about this and the designing/customizing process that many online shops offer, so I won't repeat myself too much. It is also available as an original painting in my shop.

I also added some of my new fashion paintings to my Redbubble shop (for example here). That would be all for today. As always, thank you for all your lovely comments. One more thing.  Bellow you can also see the sketching process (for those of you who are interesting in the making of  process of this fashion illustration). As I already mentioned, I sketched this fashion illustration with pencil and then I filled it with watercolours. Take care and have a great weekend!

  2. Dear Ivana, I hope you are as well as possible ... and it is wonderful you enjoy nevertheless fall. The woman in the illustration you how here today looks exactly like you, do you know this and was this your intention? In each case I love this look with pink as I'm always love pink. And I'm really impressed you can pick pomegranates near your house. I love pomegranates and saw the first time in my live a pomegranates tree with fresh fruits in Sardina.

    1. thank you Rena. I honestly didn't notice that it might look like me, but I haven't used a reference for this one so it's possible. I think artists often paint themselves unconsciously just because we are all familiar with our facial features.

  3. Hey Ivana,

    I adore how dynamic this one is, it feels like you are telling a story with this fashion illustration. Where is this woman going? And again, I love her outfit ;) Can't get enough of pink looks.

    1. Thank you so much! Maybe she's coming back from or going on a date. Or perhaps she has picked up those flowers for herself?

  15. What a lovely illustration. I think you managed to successfully create the artistic feel you were going for and the outfit depicted is very fresh and feminine. How lucky for you to be able to enjoy wild pomegranates now. My autumn has been busy but good. I was a little sad to see October coming to an end since it is one of my favorite months.

  24. YAY! As always I adore to see your illustrations and in this case the process, you're just an artist Ivana :)

    I also like that you do not limit yourself to the simple tools and that you go beyond by adding textures, materials and other stuff that just improve your already good work. Love her expression and the way she's moving with the bucket of flowers as the main focus item!

HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED BEIGE SCARF: 2 OUTFIT PROPOSALS

Whether you're longing for spring to come asap or not, one thing is certain-  winter is not going  anywhere. The cold weather is not going to end up anytime soon, not in this part of the world. It's snowing in most of Europe and the weather is quite cold. What are we do to if not dress appropriately, and that means dress as warmly as possible? Not long ago I published a post about winter accessories that keep us warm. Today I'll be talking about one of them in particular and that would be the oversized scarf.  I've always loved big scarves and I have quite a few of them, some vintage, some I made myself. Lately, however it occurred to me that I should get one of those new trendy oversized ones, the kind that you can use as blanket. You know how much I love colour, right? Well, beige is no exception so I was happy to see it listed as one of the biggest trends this season. I picked up this beige oversized scarf for next to nothing in New Yorker. It's super cozy and …

HOW TO MAKE 3D FASHION ILLUSTRATION DRESSES WITH DRY FLOWERS?

Everyone knows that flowers make for a great prop, something very useful in these visual days. Moreover, in this time of social media, we are all looking for good photography props, aren't we? Bloggers, influences and what not, everyone wants to make their photographs pop. Flowers are a great way to do just that. Dried flowers are even better, because you don't have to worry about their expiry date. Dried flowers are also a great way to recycle (when you make your own) and preserve memories. I've been drying flowers for quite some time and there is really nothing to it. You can also buy dried flowers (or even fresh ones if you prefer). They are simply a perfect addition to flat lay photography.
Today I'll speak about creating 3D dresses on fashion illustrations. Now, you don't have to know how to do fashion illustration to try your hand at this. You can trace some of the fashion templates available online (be sure to make sure the author is o.k with that) or you c…

MOSTAR VISIT RECOMMENDATIONS: TABOO BAR AND RESTAURANT + PRIVATE CLINIC VITALIS REVIEW

I first visited Taboo Bar & Restaurant about a week ago when I went to schedule a medical appointment in a newly opened private clinic Vitalis (not sponsored). This place is in the same building, so we went in there for a drink. The reason why I went to Vitalis clinic is because apparently they are the only ones who can do a proper CT bone density test (for some reason it's not available in regular hospitals). My doctor thought I should do this CT because I've been on Imuran and other immunosuppressive drugs for a decade, so there was a risk of my bones being affected by it. I did the test and my bones are fine. My experience with this Vitalis clinic was a pleasant one. I did the test yesterday and it only lasted for 10 minutes or so. Great experience indeed, until I say the bill that is. It was higher than I expected, but it seems I missed the Christmas discount. Just my luck. My blood tests (that I also did in another private clinic because my veins are so ruined from y…
