Croquis is my favourite kind of art. I love them dang. Croquis is just a simple sketch or rough draft and since I am into fashion illustration it helps to get most of the poses, and attitudes right.
I am still a learner in the aspect of fashion illustration but I am far from where I was a year ago.
How did this come about? I often ask my self that question. I know I have been drawing since I was seven but they use to be all horrible, out of form... not too bad but a little less than average. I did always design shoes and clothes only for the fun of it.
But last year, I went on my stalking routine and found this gifted designer and illustrator. we use to be classmates back in secondary school and she was my roommate once... a cool kid.
one who had always wanted to be a fashion designer and you know, I remember her saying the name of her fashion line would be HUSH VICTOIRE.... something like that I bet she cant even remember but I fell in love with it.
Back to what I was saying, I stalked her on instagram and came across beautiful pictures of her illustration but one struck me too much and inspired me to go learn how to draw... like fashion illustrations.
it was hard at first but I did persist, one year later I am far from before not still perfect but good to go.
Ah, role models like Hayden Williams, Leenavisser, Ze _Malija, Styletemple, etc.
This pictures below are from my very own Ze_Malija AKA Imaobong Ukpabio. Baby girl, you inspired me and I will always owe it to you any where in the world. you go girl.

Now that is her magic and I do love her works!
For me rendering my illustrations is still an extensive area, I am still training and I pray I get it soon. I cant wait to start having colourful illustrations too.
Below is my own work, they are my latest this past two months. and like I said earlier I still cant render my sketches to make them perfect but it is small things first... we would get there.
|This is my very own illustration|
|This pose was inspired by an iger @leenavisser. I guess that should be it.|
Hope they are lovely! See you next Friday
