Illustration, black and white watercolours

Hey all!
Thanks for viewing my new blog, Hoping everything looks nice on it, I just wanted to write an update on my new work, I really felt like my portfolio needed some versatility and a breath of fresh air, so i decided to experiment with some watercolours and pencils in a different way.

The image below is something i'm really proud of, it look a long time and I do struggle with making sure the image is simple enough but still pleasing to look at. (something I spoke about with my Asos Illustration in a previous post)

  I thought it looked a little plain, so i added some extra movement with sharp brush strokes at the bottom to imply a fluffy jumper! If you really like this piece you can get the A4 Version Here for £10
 I think it shows a really mature side to my work and something i hope to pursue and experiment with. 

This Second piece is a very early work in progress shot, It's going to have a very stark black background and dramatic reds. I'm looking forward to completing this piece as it won't be like something i've done before.

My First watercolour piece, very close up and simple again, 
It's gotten a really good reaction, I do like the eyes, If you like this illustration you can buy it here for £10


Asos Fashion Illustration

It's getting to winter, and I've been looking for cosy Hats and lovely outfit inspiration, whilst going through Asos, I was inspired, so i decided to draw something from their collection.

I really think a simple style says a lot about a person, and it really appeals to me, I know this illustration isn't particularly interesting, loud or colourful but it has a certain simplicity about it which I really like, and I hope is appreciated.
 I kept everything quite clean with a quick wash of paint to suggest the top,

My first work in progress shot, toyed with the idea of leaving the hat blank, but as it's a fashion post I thought some of the clothing needed to have detail. I find teeth a real struggle, if they are too defined they look odd and the gums can look too dark, I also struggle with making the teeth look a little too gappy sometimes, although I do think it works in this piece,

Second Work in progress, Additional detailing is added to the hair,
I'm really enjoying these Fashion Illustration posts and it's nice to get back in to it all, I'll be posting regularly with lots of work in progress shots.

Fashion Illustration Lauren Conrad

 New Illustrations, I wanted to start some really detailed work with some watercolour bits added to it, i decided to draw the lovely Lauren Conrad, She's perfect for me to draw, i adore her fashion sense and the craft work she does, I wanted the illustration to reflect her feminine style.

Close up of the illustration, i tried to add extra details in the Lips 

A work in progress of the a new piece of Artwork,  It's going to be a large piece with lots of delicately illustrated flowers and roses! I can't wait to finish this piece as it'll be for sale once i've completed it,
 I'm adding lots of pastel shades, pinks, purples and some lovely limes.

 I'll keep you all updated!
