Outfit Illustrations

I am a massive fan of fashion illustration and it has come on leaps and bounds in the last few years as more and more young artists are finding how fun it is! I have followed a few fashion illustrators for a while and love their daily outfit illustrations: the perfect way to practice drawing and create beautiful images to share. Nancy. Z is my fashion illustrator obsession at the moment - check out her wonderful drawings here http://www.xiaoxizhang.com/

Now...i love clothes. My problem is i have very limited funds and cannot sew, nor do i really want to learn ( Okay, i have the odd moment where i think its a fantastic idea, but then i remember all the other things i need to learn and it goes back to number 7 on the list - sorry sewing! ). So..instead of drawing MY daily outfits, i will be using this site instead! Chictopia !

It's perfect for what i would like to do, there's a vast range of different styles, looks and girls! Yesterday i drew two love and very different outfits.

I found it works as a great warm up exercise before i start the portraits!

On a side note: I've been updating my etsy shop again! Prints are available for the raspberry truffle cake thats pictured at the top of this post!
