Final image and process for a fashion illustration of Marc Jacobs stripe blazer and skirt.
In the process I was unsure about whether or not I wanted to use an outline. I loved the looseness of the third image but felt a few of the stripes were low on quality so I decided to tighten it up but retain the face. It was drawn from a photo but I took some liberties. Its important to retain the spirit but not to become slavish to the source. Gouache on paper with a touch of digital.
A couple of versions of a fashion Illustration for Paris Fashion week. The jacket was taken from an Elle Uk street style picture. I started with the pencil sketch then did the first colour image at A5 in Gouache. The second image is A4. Different sizes produce different line qualities etc. Strangly the first face reminds me of Carey Mulligan and the second of Uma Thurman. Bizarre. I think both have quite french faces though..
