INSPIRED BY....BLOGGERS SHANAZ & MARISA

 EN Today it's time for another post in my INSPIRED BY... feature, a regular feature on my blog in which I choose bloggers to illustrate and recommend. Today I'll show you two fashion illustrations, one inspired by Shanaz from Reverie Sanctuary blog and the other by Marisa from Marisa's closet blog. Do visit their blogs, they are both beautiful, stylish and fabulous ladies with a talent for writing. Let's get started!

IT Danas je vrijeme za još jednu objavu mojoj rubrici NADHANUTA S ..., redovnom rubrikom na mom blogu u kojoj biram blogere koji će ih ilustrirati i preporučiti. Danas ću vam pokazati dvije modne ilustracije, jednu nadahnutu sa Shanaz s bloga Reverie Sanctuary, a drugu s Marisom s Marisa's closet bloga. Posjetite njihove blogove, obje su lijepe, elegantne i nevjerojatne dame s talentom za pisanje. Započnimo!

INSPIRED BY....SHANEZ (MAKING OF A FASHION ILLUSTRATION)

MEDIUM: WATERCOLOUR PENCILS ON MIXED MEDIA PAPER

To make this illustration I first sketched the general outline with watercolour pencils and then I added more details, again with watercolour pencils. Finally, I added water with a brush and softened it. The illustration ended up looking a bit unfinished, so I might give it another go when I find time. I cannot say that I'm completely satisfied with it just yet. Bellow you can see a collage of how it was made as well as check out the photo reference I used (from Shanaz's blog obviously).


INSPIRED BY.... MARISA (MAKING OF A FASHION ILLUSTRATION)

MEDIUM: ACRYLIC PAINTS ON MIXED MEDIA PAPER

I ran out of my fancy acrylic paints while painting this one, but I managed to find a small package of less quality acrylics and I used them to complete the painting. As you can see in the collages bellow, my art process was pretty standard. First I illustrated the look with a charcoal pencil and then I started adding more and more layers of acrylic paint until I was happy with the illustrated outfit and the background. Bellow you can see the making of process as well as the photo reference I used.

  1. How lovely to honour your blogger friends this way! I can see why you were attracted to Shanaz' outfit - the colours are fantastic. I like the soft watercolours in that one. Marisa's picture is much more impressionistic, with its daubs of bolder colour. These are a wonderful way to stretch your artistic muscle, Ivana.

    And of course, YOUR outfit - that marigold yellow sweater is perfect on you (I covet it!), and I adore your funky tights! Have a good day, my friend!

    1. Thank you Sheila. I actually layered two pair of tights, the burgundy on first and then I wore a pair of leopard ones above them. I did it to be warmer but it also looks cool.

  2. Marisa ha sempre dei look originali e molto stilosi....ed un sacco di vestiti bellissimi!!!
    Mi piaccciono molto entrambe le illustrazioni, ma la seconda è la mia preferita: i colori e lo sfondo ne fanno quasi un quadro!
    Bravissima Ivana! :)
    Baci!

  11. Isn't it wonderful to inspire and be inspired by fellow bloggers? I'm sure Shanaz and Marisa are both feeling duly honoured.
    Although I'm loving both of your fashion illustrations, my favourite is Marisa's. The colours are amazing and it's got an impressionist feel, which I love.
    Your outfit is gorgeous too, and I can see that your mustard polo neck is fastly becoming a favourite. It looks absolutely fabulous on you! Wishing you a great weekend, Ivana xxx

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.
