Helen Rose's Christmas Family Portrait

I'm getting into the festive spirit!
Here's a quick warm up portrait of the lovely family christmas photo of Helen Rose's family. She posted it up on facebook and i couldn't help but want to do a quick tribute artwork of it! They're such a cute family and i love the composition she's got for this photo! :)

The original photo is below if you would like to compare!

Fashion illustration : Avery by Wang's Shirt Dress

Original fashion illustration for Avery by Wang.

I recently teamed up with Avery by Wang to do a series of illustrations depicting various ways of styling their wonderful shirtdress. Here is the first final illustration! This was the first illustration I finished for the series and it set the tone for the rest of the designs.

To give you an idea of how the process works when I create my fashion illustrations, below is the initial sketch that I showed Annching the founder and designer of the fashion collection.

Also a lot of the time you guys just get to see the final piece, but I know I always love to see peoples sketch books so over the next week or so i'll be going through my process of how I created these illustrations.

I hope it inspires some other budding fashion artists to pick up the paintbrush!
