Though my last post is in July, that does not mean I stopped illustrating since then. Actually, I am now very determined to illustrate every day eventhough not all illustrations are worth posting. I have accumulated fashion illustrations that are ready to be posted here on my blog and I have been meaning to post them earlier but the trouble of scanning them and uploading them in my blog slows me down. I wish I had an assistant to do those for me. Ha! I wish I at least had the time to do all those tasks. Right now I have too little time in between being a mom, being a wife, doing the house chores, and attending to my offline social life. When I get some time to sit alone, I try to illustrate.
Such an illustration takes me about an hour to do. I know, I am a slow poke. First I sketch it using a pencil. This step takes most of the time. Then I outline it with an ink and this normally just takes a couple of minutes. Then I render it with watercolor and this is the fun part.
