Sketch... cutesy pastel

Fashion illustration - cutesy and kawaii inspired look

Meow there, Monday!  Going for a kawaii-inspired look for today's blogpost.  Not quite costumey, but more on the casual side.  Originally wanted the skirt to be pink and white but couldn't seem to render the white right.  =^.^=

Sketch... another quick hair sketch

Meow there, Monday!  This was another one of the quick sketches I did at the dentist's clinic,,, but I wasn't able to finish it over there.  Took a photo of the magazine page and finished it at home... The sketch didn't look like the reference photo at all, as I wasn't paying much attention to it but was having fun with the shading part.  =^.^=

Doodle... sun's caress

"Sun's Caress"
Pen and ink flower doodle...

Meow there, Monday!  Had a lot of fun with this flowery doodle!  Was inspired by Dahlias... The Fashion Monger variety of Dahlia (this one) is especially striking and beautiful!  Although my version looks  more like the Clematis!  It's a few petals short of the Dahlia, but it works for the curvy lines I was going for.  I made it curvy and swirly 'coz I LOOOOOVE Art Nouveau.   I'm calling this "Sun's Caress"... =^.^=

Had to stop drawing for a moment and capture the beautiful afternoon sunlight streaming through my window...

Sketch... errand-day ootd

Fashion illustration... casual jeans OOTD

Meow there, Monday!  Got to do a fashion sketch for this Monday's blogpost. I liked the mixing of contrasts for this outfit... Businessy-like gray tailored jacket paired with distressed/ripped and faded jeans.  Adding bright fuschia for that color punch.  Finished it off with ballet flats.  I think this outfit would look chic with heels, but I chose the flats.  This would be that errand day outfit!  =^.^=

Did this sketch by hand, with my usual art materials - watercolor for base color and rendered with watercolor pencils.  Used pencil to mark in the outlines, instead of my usual inkpens.  Have yet to play with my Wacom again.  Maybe soon...  Still rather frustrated drawing/rendering with it!

Sketch... kawaii piggy

Pigtails hairstyle sketch...

Meow there, Monday!  A quick hairstyle sketch... Still learning how to draw hair. I try to do it differently but I still end up doing the same way...  *sigh*,,, Rather frustrating!   This pigtail hairstyle is similar to another I've previously done.  It's a cute hairstyle.  Referenced from a photo in my fave fashion magazine, Jj.   =^.^=
