I was thinking I must make the effort to do more illustration. I did this one a while ago in photoshop and meant to do a series of them..haha. It's a Dior (well! John Galliano) dress from an old collection but I made it look really full by piecing bits of the skirt together. I think it took quite a while but I'm a geek when I'm focused on photoshop :) The dress is obviously taken from a photograph but the head and arms were drawn on. It's quite a strange way to do an illustration and a far cry from pen, paper, pantones and pencils . I would probably prefer to just draw in the old way but it's more challenging to try and capture something different with the incredible programmes we have today. Fashion illustration has really changed and embraced the new media.
The shoes look a bit dodgy...guess I need to change those . The dress was originally green but I changed the colour :) I really want to experiment with real drawing and computer manipulation combined.
