Finally I broke out of my shell, somewhat, and added some real splash to my illustrations. This time I didn’t care if I was going t mess it up or not. I just went with it. Maybe it was those 3 cups of coffee that I had that day instead of my usual one. I’m getting more and more comfortable with painting with watercolors, even though I have been using them for a while.
This girl is a Dior design from SS 2013, I think, tell me if I’m wrong… Found the beautiful image to reference to on fashiongonerogue.com. They are the best for that kind of reference. I like how colorful it turned out.
This one (below) was made completely of the top of my head. I tried making up a suitable fun pose and a dress that would look somewhat similar to the Dior one from above.
P.S. I’ve been ding a lot of thinking lately. I know some people that have great connections… If I would meet them and go to social gatherings with them, I would get so much exposure and probably become successful fairly easy… However, for some reason, in this world that means putting up a front on your personality, being someone you are not, and making others like you. Sadly, I don’t think it’s an honest and humble way to get places in your life, easier- but not honest. Some will disagree with me saying that if I don’t do that, I won’t be successful, but I think I would rather not be successful but an honest person. Even if that sounds silly.
It seems to me that you have to earn other human being approval to get things you want in life. I think that’s a bit unfair. Maybe it’s just me. What do you think?
