Whimsical Fashion Illustration

Back in my younger years, I used to want to be a fashion designer and even started a school, but I ended up dropping out!

I don’t want to be that anymore; however, I just still LOVE fashion illustration. So, I decided I’m going to dedicated some real time to learn how to become better at drawing them.

I tried doing another one after doing our guest prompt last week. I just didn’t know how to go about drawing the angle of her hand with her thumb hanging out of the pocket, and I didn’t know how draw the belt at all. LOL

This is my whimsical version of the reference photo above I torn out of a magazine. Totally 100% FUN!!!

Color Pencil Portrait

I decided to draw a color pencil portrait using Prismacolor Color Pencils and watercolor. Unfortunately, I used a cheap so-called sketchbook I bought from Walgreens. Although the cover stated it’s a sketchbook, it really is nothing more than copy paper bound with coil!

It did not do well, of course, with watercolor and the paper started to wrinkle and I totally disliked the way the color pencil lay on the paper and the blending was not that great either. However, I still like the way she came out and it was good practice anyway! Lol

Mystical Magical Mashup Monday

We were given two reference photo for our last mashup for April. You can see the photos below. This is my rendition for the mashup. I took various elements and create this whimsical character. I started off with a scrap piece of paper to try out some of the ideas flowing around in my head and then I traced the final sketch onto my sketchbook. You can see the pencil version of my character below as well. I haven’t given her a name yet.

Whimsical African Queen Coloring Page

Right after I completed first coloring page “Whimsical Afro Girl,” I created this one. I sketched this yesterday and she had an afro but I kept seeing her with a turban on instead. I then decided to add random lines for designs on her turban and was pleased with the outcome. So, I decided to turn this into another coloring page, which I titled Whimsical African Queen Coloring Page. I excited about coloring her too! Lol
