I'm Photoshopless... meaning no more digital illustration until I can get my grubby hands on CS5 (BLERG this time I want Illustrator and InDesign, too). Until then, I'll have to illustrate Claudia the good, old fashioned way that makes my room smell like toxic-marker-heaven.
"She was wearing a wonderful Claudia outfit - a purple-and-white striped body suit under a gray jumper-thing. The legs of the body suit stretched all the way to her ankles, but she was wearing purple push-down socks anyway. Around her middle was a wide purple belt with a buckle in the shape of a telephone. And on her feet were black ballet slippers."
I was unable to fit in the telephone buckle (gah... and it was going to be yellow, too) and it's not the same style as the other outfits (ie, no skin pigmentation whatsoever), but since I haven't updated in two weeks, you all can deal, right?
Most people think we are cheesy, but S & I often share clothing (I like oversized and he likes fitted) and often end up coordinating our wardrobe. Having an affinity for purple, he immediately picked up these boots from IceFire when we were in Hong Kong. I immediately loved the contrasting colors and textures, but I definitely can't wear shoes four sizes bigger than my own. Luckily, these glorious Jeffrey Campbell Litas became available via Solestruck.
"... she was wearing maroon leggings and ballet slippers under an oversized yellow shirt. Around her waist she wore this great belt that she made herself from three thin strips of leather tied together and decorated with ceramic beads. For the final touch, Claudia had swept her hair over to one side and tied it up with another thin leather strip that had the same kind of beads on it."
Happy 2011, everybody ~ To start off the new year, I had nonchalant Claudia paired with irritated & 80s-tastic Dawn for double the Bsc fun. In the coming weeks, I'm going to start working on fashion illustrations from different fandoms (and hopefully some multi-character pieces).
But don't worry - the Childhood Trauma series won't be going anywhere.
