I created 6 illustrations which I wanted them to be quite expressionist, Posey and fun to capture the attitude of my customer and collection. I chose to make my illustrations digital as I am much stronger in creating digital illustrations. I feel digital works well when a collection has print fabrics as they can be included in the backgrounds and as shapes. It also makes the clothing look more realistic. I decided to use shapes in the backgrounds around the fashion illustration to focus it on the model and the outfit the shapes are also because I have used a lot of different shapes in my silhouettes and prints. I believe digital illustrations can also look more professional too and as my customer is a professional women and sophisticated this would be the style to catch her eye. I created them using Adobe illustrator to trace models in fun poses and Photoshop to warp my working sketches on to the models. The hair is messy and ginger/blonde inspired by the model whom is my muse and has been used in previous illustrations and my line up.
This is the first illustration I created of my 6th outfit I was happy with the transparency of the dress but thought the colours were too similar and there was no contrast so I carried on playing with layer modes until I found the right one. Which was the second one. I think the hues of bright and dark contrast well against one another and the splash of light blue on the chandeliers,although its not in my colour palette, adds more dimension and depth making the illustration more visually appealing.
