FASHION ILLUSTRATION, A PURPLE GOWN FROM VILLA VALENTINA SPRING SUMMER 2021 COLLECTION
Hello dear readers! Today I'm back with another fashion illustration. As soon as I saw this gorgeous and dramatic indigo gown from Villa Valentina Spring Summer 2021 collection on Pinterest, I knew I had to illustrate it. I have never stumbled upon Villa Valentina clothes before. Honestly, I have no idea who is behind this brand, but their new collection is absolutely stunning and I might illustrate it some more. Anyhow, back to the fashion illustration of the day. The medium is coloured pencils on paper ( link for the pencils not sponsored, just trying to be informative). It took me three minutes to sketch this Villa Valentina indigo gown with a pencil, but more than half an hour to colour it. Drawing ruffles takes more time than drawing some other fabrics, but I actually love illustrating ruffles. Special thanks to Youtuber Zoe Hong for teaching me how to do it better in this tutorial. If you want to improve your fashion illustration skills, I would recommend this Youtuber because she actually teaches Fashion Illustration and Design and knows all about it whereas I'm just a hobby fashion illustrator and don't have comprehensive knowledge about the fashion industry. On the other hand, if you need a language teacher or translator, I'm your gal.

Today I shall keep this post brief as I've been struggling with chronic pain lately so I'm a bit low on energy. As some of my readers know, I suffer from some chronical illnesses. Normally, I love writing long posts but expect them to be shorter in the foreseeable future.
Thank you for visiting!
