Old Fashion Sketches

Long before I even realized I had some utter fascination for fashion illustration I kept drawing mermaids and princesses and fantasy ladies all covered up in fancy dresses and jeweled bras and exotic hair-does rather from not knowing how to draw hair than from anything else. I continually kept sketching my school notebooks and stuff with cartoons and fairies which kept me busy in free hours. It was not until very recently that I discovered what I was doing was called fashion illustration…WOOWW Yeah it caught me by surprise. Then I started frequenting nasty places like David Downton and Laura Laine and other miscellaneous targets that really gave me a bad headache. *slap

And that’s the whole story. But in the meantime check out these ones I bring up today.

And while these are old for about two years (?) I am somehow trying to upload the newest which do not differ that much from these oldies except for the addition of color :O Yess and it does add a lot to the final look  and definitely people do have a better reaction towards a colored sketch than the pencil ones I am posting today. However these first impressions, you will notice my first intentions to produce more realistic renderings of clothes. Not anymore. I fully embrace the idea that I’ve evolved from worrying over delivering realistic, appropriately shaded forms and fabrics to just painting the more important regions of the outfit, even though i still maintain a good outline of the body for I have always loved drawing poses and have strived (not much) in getting better and better at drawing the female form. It is therefore a rather painful experience to completely obliterate the drawing process to just stay with sheer pigment; I am not experienced and my drawing skills are founded merely on the efforts of my youthful free times (class periods) so  for me, drawing is exhilarating whenever I remember that the whole process I learned by myself (I obviouly still learn at every sketch I do). So that red dress from my previous post is by far the most edgy of them all in the sense of these artistic movements, if any movement I am allowed to be in.

Anyhow, I am glad to present these few which might be included in two posts since my images will need to be resized? I have to search some tips on handling images in here. I don’t want to clog my library in two posts!
