FRIDAY FASHION ILLUSTRATION: TWO FEMININE OUTFITS

It's Friday and you know what that means. Time for another Friday Fashion Illustration- a regular feature on my blog where I post my original fashion illustrations. Today I stole half an hour to illustrate something that I actually wore today.  . I have been doing a lot of fine landscape painting lately, so a quick fashion illustration felt almost like a break. So, in a way I took a break from the more ambitious paintings I have been working on lately to draw this simple fashion sketch and some other ones. When I'm in hurry like this, I like to use watercolour pencils because the sketching and the colouring process can be fairy quick. I'm also trying to use reference more (as you might have noticed) in my drawing. Moreover, today I'll share another fashion illustration with you and that one is of an older outfit I wore back here in 2016. Both of these illustrations were drawn with watercolour pencils (from Staedtler)  in one of my larger sketchbooks. Scroll down and have a look!


FASHION ILLUSTRATION #1: ILLUSTRATING A BLACK VINTAGE DRESS- This fashion illustration took less than half an hour to finish. It would have probably taken even less were I not documenting the process. I think the photographs show the art process quite well. Bellow you can also see one of the illustrations I already shared because I drew this one the page. I'm saving paper. :)


OUTFIT INFORMATION: On the photographs you can see me wearing a camel coat. Moreover, there is also a burgundy jacket thrown over my right arm. The plan was to wear the burgundy jacket if I feel too warm in the coat. Do you know what happened? I left both the coat and the jacket in the car, it was so warm today. I just wore this fabulous black vintage wrap dress with metallic silver details (I inherited this dress from my mother). The bag and the boots are from a local store in Mostar called Borsa, not sure about the brands for these two, but this store imports from Italy. I'm actually wearing two pair of tights layered on the other here, one is a burgundy pair and the other is a leopard fishnet pair. If I recall well, both pairs of tights were purchased in Kik store in Stari grad on island Hvar. 




FASHION ILLUSTRATION #2: ILLUSTRATING A SKIRT, TURTLENECK AND A BLAZER LOOK
The second outfit is from the archives. This illustration  is drawn in the elongated style typical of fashion illustration (ten head ratio as opposed to normal eight). It is fun to see my hair a bit shorter in this illustration. I'm typically very boring when it comes to my hair, I never change things up but I suppose that back in 2016, I felt like changing it up. I still have all of the items from this outfit and wear them regularly. I even devoted a special 30 plus wears to this fabulous caramel pair of boots (Peko, local designer edition).

  13. Beautiful illustrations as usual Ivana!

    I love your style cause you're always trying to add something different to your proposals, even tho it feels like a very cohesive personal style ;)

    My favorite is the one with the brown blazer, I'd say this one represents you the best with your books in the hand, loved that special touch in this illustration *_*

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.
