Long dress collection…

Hello everyone….so for my next set of illustrations, I will be sketching concept designs for long dresses.. ..this is my first…

I recently had a chat with a fashion designer and she talked about prints not being used enough for long dresses. This became my inspiration for the first sketch. 

It’s a long green dress, somewhat flamboyany flared, and with green floral prints..what do you think?

Concept sketch

So in my sketch session this morning I tried to come up with a dress design suitable for a bridesmaid.  

I went with the color purple because,  well, I love purple…but then I also decided to go with a single shouldered draped dress with an asymmetrical hemline..

Sketch session

Well, this isn’t a fashion illustration… .just a sketch I made this morning for the fun of it. I was going for an image of a young woman looking over a nice morning landscape. In this illustration, I decided to show it’s incomplete and finished stage..

Educate yourself..

This art piece was for an eBook that was titled educate yourself. I just went for a straightforward “woman reading a book”. What made this piece special to me is that I experimented with an art style that’s supposed to give it a realistic, kinda movie like look. I think it turned out okay..

The blindness of religion.

This is an illustration I made recently about a common issue, especially in many African countries. Many people believe in a higher power, a force that guides their actions and its outcome, which is fine, I have my faith as well. What is not fine is that some people believe so strongly in a higher power to bring a desired change in their lives that they completely disregard their own ability. Prayer is good, but it will amount to nothing if you dont act. It is ultimately your actions that bring change to the world around you. 

The illustration portrays a man praying for a house, while he pays no attention to the materials he can use to build that house. The message is simple: You can believe in God, but believe in yourself as well.

I’ll also try to post something at least every week, don’t forget to follow if you like what you see. #postaweek #illustration

EBook cover art

This was an art piece I made for the cover of an upcoming eBook. Its about the love life of a high school student documented through her diary entries. So I tried to be as straightforward with this one as possible. I portrayed a young woman lying on an a field, with her diary next to her. I tried to capture a daydreaming “head in the clouds” look on the young woman’s face.
