So, my friends are designing a fashion magazine and they needed an opening illustration and a few spots for a series of articles. Anyways, they thought to ask me to give it a shot, since they were waiting for permission to use illustrations from another illustrator. They wanted something loose, expressive and to have it look like fashion illustration and also relate to the articles. This was the result, and I don't think they'll be using it, but it was an interesting experiment.
Here's my attempt at creating a loose, pretty, fashion-illustration-like, editorial illustration. The right side was supposed to bleed over, and it would've been a 2 page spread with the text/type/copy on the right side.
