Marc Jacobs Sunglasses Fashion Illustration


A departure from my usual style, I have taken up heavy strokes, and cool colors to create an ultra modern take on fashion portraiture.

A Marc Jacobs as from the December Vogue.

This one is inspired from an old Givenchy ad.
I love the feel of juxtaposition of the softness of color and the heaviness and definition of lines.

Coach Poppy Watercolor Accessory Illustration

I just love these two colors in the Coach Poppy bottle. I have been experimenting with different styles and I am loving the heavy, messy strokes.

Valentino Perfume Illustration Ink and Watercolor Illustration

I have been experimenting lately with looser lines and soft colors. When it comes to fashion illustration, sometimes, a line can tell so much with so little.

How to Use Brush Pens in Fashion Illustration

I wanted to invite you to join me as I explore Pentel Aquash Brush Pens and Yasutomo ink. All week long! They not only allow you to create strong ink strokes, but by giving the pen a little squeeze, you will unveil beautiful transparent washes.
I use either a 2h or 6h pencil because I do not want the marks of the pencil to be very visible.

The set of brush pens I purchased has three sizes- broad, medium and fine. Fill them up with water or liquid paint and watch their beauty.

You will need:
Yasutomo Chinese Ink
Pentel Aquash Brush Pens
Watercolor paper or Mixed media paper

**Make sure you fill your pen with water!
To get some of the lighter tones out of the pen, you must squeeze the pen a bit to allow the water to flow the bristles. The more you squeeze the more transparent the stroke. The less water added the more rich and dark the line work.

You can see more of it in my instagrams at www.instagram.com/Elaine.Biss. Did you create something too? Leave a comment below and show me! ��
