I painted a fashion illustration for the first time today with my gouache paints and I added a little bit of pizazz to it by adding some glitter eyeshadow. Yes, you
heard read me right, makeup. I was looking for glitter and didn't find any so I thought, "what the heck, Why not?" It came out nice. Though I have to say, I love the effect of glitter better on pictures I've seen online. Anyways, I hope that you love it! I will be making more, but of course I will be buying paper that will not bend because my sketchpad was not the best paper for it.
The last time I painted something was in my 2D class last fall and let's just say it was horrible. I got an A on it, for effort, but I'm sure the teacher felt bad for me because he saw how much trouble I was having with it. So, much to my surprise, this one exceeded my expectations, Big Time.
Enjoy the process of pictures, and let me know what you think:)
This is where I used a bit of clear glue. I also added it on the highlights of the hat, shoulders and top of bust.
Here it is with the shimmer eyeshadow:)
The quirky tools I used:)
