Sketch... Tangerine Summer

Meow there, Monday!   Yay for Summer!   Felt like doing bright, vibrant colors.  Haven't done much orange outfits in a while... luscious tangerine seems quite a great summer color.    =^.^=

This lady's going to the beach, with  her summer staple buri beach bag...

Sketch... Sunny Summer

Meow there, Monday!   A sunny, little summer outfit for today's fashion illustration/sketch.  Outfit for going to the beach or just hanging out at the mall... =^.^=

Sketch/Video... Kawaii Kimmidoll

Meow there!  Kimmidolls are just oh so adorably cute!  I had a blast looking at all the many, many kawaii dolls over at the Kimmidoll website.  Cuteness Overload!!!  Inspired me to do a fashion illustration/sketch based on my Kimmidoll Junior, Holly.  Thanks to my friend C for gifting me one last Christmas!  So here is my Kimmidoll fan art... my grown-up version of Holly.  And, also, this blog has turned 2 today!  Yay!  =^.^=

Tweaked/modified her outfit... a bit more modern.

Did a little video of this fashion illustration... not a full drawing/rendering video, just the initial watercolor base application and then the inking...  Still used the same materials I always use:  combination of Prang and Sakura watercolors, combination of Derwent and Faber Castell watercolor pencils and inkpens ( 0.1 and 0.5 point tips).

Sketch... Funky Pink

Meow there, Monday!  A little bit of funk in today's fashion sketch/illustration.  And a little bit of green too since it's St. Patrick's Day today.  Lots of luck, everyone!  =^.^=

'Lattice-work' vest for texture... and a bit of peek-a-boo effect.

Sketch... Ann Demeulemeester Fall/Winter 2014-2015 Ready-to-Wear

Meow there, Monday!  Going almost colorless today!  All white outfit from Ann Demeulemeester's Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection...loving the draping design.  Thought I'd try doing white for a change.  Didn't come out as I liked it to be, but I'm considering this as a challenge to do better!   Will need to practice rendering more white outfits...  =^.^=

No watercolor pencils this time... 
Just regular watercolor, pencil and inkpen.
