A Penny for your Summer Fashion

It's sad to see summer start to say good-bye...but now's the time to find all those summer fashions you wished you could have, for a better price! The sales racks will be full of them!

The creation of Penny was inspired by these last days of true summer, before everyone heads back to school and comes back from those lovely vacations. Happy and carefree and a little bit sun-kissed!

Light & Summery

Once again, it's been ages!

I've been keeping extra busy with my graphic design projects and a relatively new passion (since early 2013) involving my Monsterribles (check out www.monsterribles.com). Today was a day that I needed to create something fashionable. Seeing as it's about 35 Celsius outside, I wanted to sketch up something cool!

Fashion Portraits

Some more practice on portraits (these ones are imagined). I actually prefer to let the paintbrush guide me (the photoshop one), and surprise me with the result!

3 Step Fashion Illustration

Here's some insight into my usual method of sketching a pose and a fashion, in 3 steps. Start with a basic pose - if you're not as skilled sketching without anything to look at for guidance, try searching the web for a fashion model or a template. Utilize a wooden posing figure if you have one, or a ball jointed doll (these are GREAT for sketching fashion)!

Sketch the clothes overtop, making note of where you think gravity and the body would affect how a garment rests or falls.

Add color, a pattern, footwear and anything else that might compliment your new fashion!

Fashion Collection - LadyBug

This small collection was great to design. With only two colors, and some variations in value, red and black become the theme for this bunch.
