It was a lot of fun adding watercolor to the sketches! I had to rewatch katie's video a hundred times at first because I was really scared and I didn't want to mess up the sketches. And there were times when I didn't really know what I was doing, especially when mixing the colors and making the dress look flowy, a little bit of this...a little bit of that... I used some glitter pens to add "embellishments" to the sketch since we don't have fine/Martha Stewart brand glitter available where I live. I think it creates a nice shine when bent towards the light.
Overall I'm pretty satisfied with the way it turned out! I hope you guys like it :)
Here they are! Better late than never! :)
I'm a newbie at fashion illustration. I mostly just doodle, but nothing as serious as this. And this'll be my first time using watercolors as well!
I hope you do comment if you have the time, let's help each other improve our craft :)
Something's going on with my scanner, so I hope you'll forgive the quality of the pictures. Also, paper quality isn't that great yet. I'm not using the hardcore watercolor papers yet, this is just a simple kind of copying paper. Hopefully it won't crease a much when I apply the watercolors.
I am inspired...
...by delicate fabrics and intricate detail
...by romantic flow and feminine silhouettes
...by the softest blush and palest cream
...by whimsy and lace and ruffles and sparkle.
