Lyse's Sketches







Ok. For my travel theme I was planning on doing different girls traveling around, but in rain. I believe most people think of rain as a negative aspect about traveling, but I thought it might be a cute idea to try and show a more fashion oriented and fun side to it. As of now, I was planning on drawing loose backgrounds of locations and keeping them in muted shades (maybe sepia?) and keeping the girls with umbrellas in color. I'm thinking of backgrounds similar to the first and second picture, models more like the third. I'm afraid my idea's not quite cohesive enough though, so any suggestions would be much appreciated. =)

i like the colors in the bottom one and her expression. you could make some really decorative pretty designs with the rain too.

I like the idea since fashion is all about frivolous fun. Maybe the people could be running around in the rain more with a "Devil may care about my Prada luggage, for I am young and in the moment!"kind air to them?

aw alyse i love umbrella's theyre so charming. i like your idea on how youre using umbrellas and rain. i think it would look nice if you used bright colored outfits against a rainy background so the outfits and the figures pop of the page. i think it's fun

I think they're great! Really nice use of color, and good design. I like the shapes the rain free umbrella covered spaces make. Keep playing with it.
