I've recently (not that recent actually) picked up a new love, illustrating with eyeshadow coloring. I notice that there are a LOT of beautiful looking fashion-based illustration and art out there. I decide to join the crowd for this one, but as they all say, you have to be able to stand your own ground.
I've always loooooved makeups and colors, and I'm a broke college student who couldn't afford mega stuff coloring. But I've been collecting makeups since junior high, some of them are going (and already) bad and inappropriate for face-use, and you can guess where the colors go now.
Anyway, I'll be posting eyeshadow illustrations from now on. Any critics and suggestions are always open, as long as you don't lash me out and tell me to get the fuck off my own blog. Joking, not.
Please note that the illustrations I post are pre-edited with Photoshop, because both my scanner and camera are too crappy to pull off a decent color, so I have to readjust the color to my real drawing color first. I'll never use photo editors to alter the illustrations in any other way, promise.
In case you haven't seen the RM S/S 2013 collection, take a little sneak peek. Anyway, I'm entering a competition for Rebecca Minkoff shopping spree. Sweet holy Jesus right? If you're a blogger you can check it out here, OR if you're a non-blogger, you can also enter the competition here.
That being said, I'm creating a post inspired by her fabulous collection. I had no clue what I was going to create in the first place, so I just did what I really (I MEAN REALLYYYY) love to do, illustrating.
Yup, illustration. The illustration I did was made pure by markers, fineliners, and, guess what? Eyeshadows. Okay, to be honest, I did use Adobe, but only because my scanner was shit and the color went all dull when I scanned it, so I adjusted it to my real drawing color.
I decided to draw a cropped jacket with pattern gradient towards the bottom. For the pants, it's a gradient pattern going from blue - spraypaint blue&white - white.
This drawing is inspired from these outfits:
What do you think of her collection? To be honest sometimes I do miss such simplicity in fashion. Most fashion shows today are filled with rad outfits that we can only stare at, as beautiful as they are. But to actually see something that we can both adore and wear, it's definitely something. Thanks Rebecca!
