So, i have officially ended my graphic design course and i'll be looking into fashion illustrations courses instead. They don't have any acredited classes in my state, so i'll either be taking a short un-credited class at tafe, taking a course online, or waiting to travel to the other side of australia to do one their. plans for now are for me to be working while trying to build up a portfolio of decent work and get my work seen through sites like tumblr,pinterest, instagram and of course here. I've also started a wordpress blog to showcase all these new drawings, to look more professional. DA is a hobbysite for me and this is something differant. [link] it only has these two drawings up so far, but you've got to start small haha.
Anyway, these two looks are from an exteremly cool designer brand, Dsquared2, from the spring 2013 collection. sketched in pencil,coloured in copics and edited in photoshop.
Ruth Aldine Aka: X-men known as Blindfold Aka: Total cutie patootie Aka: my new favourite
SO yeah i posted the sketch of the first look up but here it is coloured and next to an all new, fancier, outfit. More like a going out, date, look. I like Ruth in autumn colours, so browns, maroons, plums etc. Also girly skirts mixed with boyish boots and coats. I mean she 'see's but in a differant kind of way than normal people, so i dont think her fashion sense is the most important thing to her but she has her own style. Kind of country meets thrift shop.
also if your not ready x-men legacy by now i think you need to get your priorities straight ok like seriously its awesome so read it
sketched and colored in copic markers, edited in photoshop.
None of these are my designs, they are high fashion looks from runways and i just drew them because they took my fancy.
First one is dolce gabbana, pretty sure, second...ive honestly forgotten since i didnt take note of the designer when i clipped the picture out of a magazine, and the last one is chanel. Theyre all so differant from eachother they actually look quite strange in a picture together...
An x-men fanart mixed with a little fashion illustration. Illyana is a character i've never really taken an interest in since I've started reading x-men comics, even when she was on the extinction team. But with the new uncanny series she has caught my attention in about 3 issues. I suddenly find myself liking Illyana haha. So i drew her being her badass self.
The knicker shorts are from one teaspoon. Top is from sass and bide The jacket is Adidas by Jeremy Scott Necklaces are alexander mcqueen (the choker) and lanvin. The garter can be found on etsy ([link]) link because you can buy them for $16 and they are hella cute. Earrings were not referanced.
I wanted her to look punk, satanic, gaga-esque and luxe at the same time haha.
I've loved pixie since she started being a regular in uncanny x-men. I haven't drawn her much because honestly it feels like every different artist gives her a different hair cut anyway and i suck at drawing wings in general, but yeah. shes too cute for me not to draw at all.
A look taken from Lana Del Rey's spread in Vogue. I loved it so much i have the page ripped out and up on my wall haha. Embroidered silk collar, crystal embroidered bandeau , and marabou feather skirt are all Meadham Kirchoff. Gloves from Abbie Walsh and crystal hair comb from Jeniffer Behr.
Perfect quotes from Lana Del Rey on her own style: "Gangster Nancy Sinatra" "Lolita got lost in the hood" "I live in Monaco but don't fuck with me"

I decided i wanted to draw some of my favorite x-girls in casual wear. Ruth's been around since astonishing x-men but i never took much notice of her, and she;s only really showed up as a very minor character throughout the x-books i've read. BUT i recently read the new x-men legacy series featuring Legion and its just so good and i don't know what kind of powers were at work but i have literally fallen in love with Ruth in about ten issues sooo....yeah. If you don't think Ruth is a cutie patootie you need to get out of my face.
but yeah you should all go read the new x-men legacy series, it's really good.
This is 's character Cynthia in a dress i designed for her (and before ANYONE asks i am not taking requests or trades or commisions, this is a one off gift because she is a good friend)
I coloured this a bit differant from usual, a lot more like how i do my fashion illustrations (which i havent posted much off. Once i build up enough ill include the best ones in some big picture im sure of it). so my sketch lines show through more, you can see a lot more of the pen strokes with my colouring and instead of an art line pen i outline it in darker pencil but only in certain areas. I went with the more fashiony style becuase it felt like a fashion illustration, showing off that dress.
Anyway, i hope j-jai likes it it was really fun to draw her beautiful character
