My Ipad doodles

For my adorn and decorate unit of GCSE art I chose to do fashion illustrations of Valentino's dresses in SS12. I had to look at various artists such as the young and new Niki Pilkington and the legendary David Downton to inspire my work. As I follow D2G Apparel's facebook page, which is a website focusing on up and coming fashion illustration, I could discover a range of talented and original artists. One of the artists was Mustafa Soydan: Digital vs. traditional illustrations: Mustafa Soydan says both caught my eye with this beautiful illustration of Kate Moss for French Vogue:

As always, when I find  new artist I try imitate their style. I uploaded an illustration app on my Ipad and started doodling. Here are some of my trials:


This is the closest I got to his style...

I left Paul McCartney with no black like I did for John as I liked the contrast of the  facial features with the white... but my teacher wanted me to do it for John so I could see the effect...

Leigh Viner illustration...

As I was searching for illustration blogs to get inspiration I found Leigh Viner's blog: CREATE. What I love the most about her illustration is that, even though it is quite contemporary, it is very classic.

This is my favorite. I love the hair as it reminds me of Klaus Voorman's Beatles Revolver  cover. The dark eye, contrasting with the light pink lines fits in beautifully.
For those two, I like the effect of the paint dripping. 
The brushstroke in this one is very elegant, giving a light effect.
