There I realized what really fashion illustration is: an illustration that suggest a feeling bounded with a fashion collection or an article, a song, a novel. A fashion illustration suggest a story itself, through style.
Very often this kind of illustration is mistaken with fashion design.
Here is one of my most recent fashion illustrations, inspired by the 20's and the Chinese horoscope...try to guess why! The drawing was made on paper with black ink and it was later colored with Photoshop in digital painting. Here you can see the different stages of the the work (please click on the pictures to see them bigger).
