Okay, I shall share a sneak peek of what went on in my brain when I created the Red Dress illustration.
After doing a bit of research I wanted to try and see if I could paint a flowy dress. It's all about leaving highlights and creating shading for movement and it's linked to the small project with my sister (which I'll tell more about next time). So I grabbed my brushes and started. No wait, I grabbed a pencil and sketched out a base...then I started painting hehe. The painting of the dress went surprisingly well and then...the head got messed up. I totally drew it too small, but it looked fine when I sketched it out. So rude of my own perspective. This was the first dress.
Fashion Beauty Guru lady) that I messed it up. She was sitting on the couch and I sat at the dining table waving my arms from side to side, going like 'Cillaaaaa! Cillaaaaa I messed it up! The head is tooo smalll! I messed it up!!!!'
Yeah *ahem*. Let's continue. I re-drew it again and painted it with a more intense red and I double checked if the head was correct. But another problem started floating around. I did not like the head I drew nor the hairdo. It didn't fit the feeling I wanted the painting to have. However everything did match this time, but still not quite right.
Yes....I did what any normal person would do. I whined again. "Cillaaaaa! OMG! The hairdo is annoying me!! I messed up again! I do like the dress though, but the haaaaiiirrr! OMG"
Yeah. Some whining can be needed to get the frustrating out of my system and I think I used a stronger word to express how I messed up again, but I don't want you guys to faint...my apologies, Cilla.
So I just put everything aside and proceeded to paint what now is known as Jello Lady. I'll give her a few siblings I think.
So do you guys like one dress better than the other? One head better than the other? Let's compare and please do tell!
