Archive for the ‘Female Beauty’ Category

Most women want to feel how it is to be a famous fashion model or an actress and have thousands of admirers at least in their imagination. That is why I am sometimes asked to draw personalized glamorous gift illustrations. I am good in portraits drawing and that is why I can create some cool personalized gifts for women with a custom portrait. One of my recent commissions was a custom pin-up poster drawn from a photo.

Pin-up art is truly a symbol of glamor and female beauty admiration. Isn’t it cool to have your portrait drawn in a style which represents the roots of today’s fashion photography and classical female charm?
Here is the pin-up I have drawn with color pencils using a client’s photograph as a reference trying to imitate classical pin-up drawings adding a little of my drawing style. I hope it was a good gift.

In this blog post I want to show you stages of my fashion model drawing. This will give you idea about how I create my fashion illustrations as I know that a lot of people wonder how to draw a fashion illustration, how to build a figure, poses, and eventually how to put clothing on a drawn model. Of course, my example here below is not very informative but I hope it will be useful for many people who are interested in fashion art and illustrations. As a rule, I make fashion illustrations in five stages which are shown on pictures below, beginning from figure building and pencil sketching to a fully colored illustration. This is, however, a little bit scrupulous approach to creating illustrations, a lot of professional illustrators would draw the below illustrations “a la prima”, i.e. without preliminary figure building. But this post is definitely created not for professional illustrators, but rather for those who start learning how to draw a model with clothes on. I personally like studying such drawing schemes and stages made by other artists and illustrators. I consider them to be rather useful for training illustrating skills.

I am not a fashion designer as many people seem to think about me. I am illustrator and some fashion designers as well as fashion and style magazines use me to represent their fashion designs or not yet implemented concepts and ideas by means of illustrations which is an unusual, attention-catching and unhackneyed way to show fashion to the world.

In this post I deliberately do not use illustrations of super-duper fashion models in luxury dresses as it is a New Year’s night and I want to make something down-to-earth and bring in a little fun. I think glamorous maids will be good models here to demonstrate process of illustrating fashion by Igor Lukyanov as I am myself a down-to-earth person whose heard is open to all good people regardless of whether they are simple “maids” or well known super models (I am using metaphor here 😉 ).

I wish you, guys, Happy New Year!!! I hope you enjoyed this post and it will be a little pleasant gift for you. And, of course, I hope some of the visitors of my blog will become my clients in this New Year. Cheers!!!

This illustration was not purposely created as a fashion illustration. However after guys who love fashion saw it on my page on Facebook I was asked to join a group of people whose job is related to fashion design and upload this illustration to show it to fashion design community. And I did so. It seems that fashion designers love my feminine illustrations. And I believe editors of fashion & lifestyle magazines (and any other female magazines) are likely to love illustrations of such style as they may make their magazines very original. That’s why I decided to create another category called “Female Beauty” where I will show some my female portraits and illustrations, of course with the same purpose of attracting potential clients for custom illustrations.
