I'll go ahead and say it now. I lied. This ain't no 'series wrap up'.
There is NO WAY that I will not be revisiting this theme- it was SO MUCH FUN!!!
That being said...I am behind in posting my June series, right now it is a bunch of experiements and I hope to be brave enough to post them in full tomorrow...on account of it's something brand new to me so I am like, waaaaaaay outside of my comfort zone and kinda freaking out.
But back to those ol' wedding belles! I seriously LOVED this series. I mean, some of the pieces I enjoyed more that others, but just looking at and sketching wedding gowns was something I really enjoyed. I think that the toned paper was a good choice for the works, I really like how the white paint and pencil looks on that tan background.
But there were a few pieces that stand out for me...
Lovin' me some Liris.
In my previous post I wrote about being excited to see one of my favorite Project Runway models featured in a bridal campaign- the beautiful Liris Crosse. Well...I was so excited that I went back and drew two more pics of her as 'extra' pieces...just because!
...and Liris saw the pieces and I will be mailing those out to her, hoping she shares a pic when she gets 'em. If she does I will post it!
At the end of my series I started thinking about bridal gowns from different cultures...and that led me down a internet rabbit hole. I found waaaaaaay too much. I narrowed it down a bit and just jumped in and started drawing.
Lucky for me my good friend Siddhi was only a text away to give me some leads on designers. I checked out designers she told me about from India, and then found even more...next thing I know I was immediately swooning over all the details, and of course the SPARKLE. Gahhhhh. I have already requested that she renew her vows so I can get all gussied up and see this beauty first hand. (oh, and she also did a traditional american wedding, so she had a second WHITE gorgeous dress...'cause she is fancy like that!)
Okay...enough already, here is my daily work, and some extra pieces 'cause I really LOVED this theme!
...just a gal trying to get this art out of my soul to share with the world on a DAILY basis...no big deal...check out my ramblings!-JLG
