Well in preparation for the season premiere of one of my favorite shows, Project Runway, I decided to do some fashion sketches.


The color on this one was a happy mistake in Photoshop...  I generally avoid doing stuff digital because when I do it comes out looking a little forced and flat.  I tweaked a couple settings and decided to play around for at bit.  For once it actually looked a little more natural and had an organic feel to it.

Vector Attack

I have a couple of my old drawings saved to my desktop so when I'm bored they just sit there and stare at me... I know you've seen something similar to these before but they made me do it.  


This was a really interesting exercise... There was a lot of back and forth during the process.  One minute I'd be super impressed and happy with where it was going and the next minute I was really underwhelmed.  I think a lot of that came from letting myself overwork it a little.  All in all it turned out okay.  I really do love some things about it... like the feather and the simplicity of the shirt.  

During the early block in stage I thought this would be really fun to play around with using watercolors... Hopefully I'll get to that sooner than later.  I'll post my efforts if they prove worthy.  

On a random side note... A couple months ago I developed an interest in family history and got extremely excited at the thought of putting faces to names.  Over the last couple of weeks I've been gathering and cleaning up family photos and here's a one that I'm proud of.
