'Seduction' Illustrations 3 by TheBocaj 'Seduction' Illustrations 3 by TheBocaj
What you've already read:
These are for my Computer-Aided Design class. I'm designing for Spring/Summer 2009, playing with 40's and 50's tailoring, splicing that with Christian Iconography of the Martyr St. Sebastian (shot through with arrows, if you didn't know). The collection has a focus on occasion dressing, like, dressing for dinner, looking proper, etc.

What's new:
So, here are the final illustrations from my finals. Flats were [supposed to be] with this for the final presentation. (They weren't done, f*cking overload at school this quarter, I swear to God.)

These are the nicer, toward-color, toward-cocktail pieces: a sequined, beaded skirt and dresses in self-color-lined poplin, bold orange, and rich pink silk jersey.

Line drawings from the sketchbook, brought into to Photoshop and colored. Hope you like!

the pink and the orange are nice=] but i think the long red gloves with the pink stands out too much,perhaps if it had the short glove like the first?=9
but i rili love how the pink was paired with the gold accessory x)

I love the orange dress! I would SO wear that if it existed. In that shade, too. The pink one is nice, too, but I like the shape of the orange dress a little better. It'd be a wonderful dancing dress!

u should try like using different designs for the boots but still using the same theme... i think that would look awesome... :) overall i love them...
TheBocaj Featured By Owner May 28, 2008   Interface Designer
Oh, they're not boots. I gave them all stockings, since it's more period referential to the 40's and 50's, but when I added brown shoes, they looked like Bambi legs (deer), so...I decided to just keep them stocking-skin tone and not worry about detracting from the design. That's why the hair and makeup is so basic too.

ah i see... the stockings fooled me... for a minute i thought that you were using the same theme but not just that, the same look... haha... they dont look all of the genre... they actually would still look good at present times... i guess it wouldn't hurt to add stilettos... hahaha! but still nice though... :)

Let's hope--I was trying to create something for right now Spring 2009 (well, the September shows, you know).

Don't worry, they have shoes in my head. :)

how do you get your lines clean like this on photoshop (if you don't mind telling me).
TheBocaj Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2008   Interface Designer
goodness, I don't know. I used Micron pens on tracing paper (.3, I think?) and scanned them, then used Magic wand on...75? tolerance to select all the black layers (anti-alias checked, contiguous unchecked), then pasted them in a new file, and cropped to focus on one drawing at a time. Any blaring wavy lines, I hit with the eraser on the side--shift+click to connect your last click to your new click works wonders to skim a line. After that, I created new layers beneath the LOCKED black outline layer to apply color for skin or what have you.

For the most part though, I was just cautious with the Micron pen. I'm much more confident by hand than on machine, so any work I can do externally, I do. That was the blessing in this class; we had to do the line drawings by hand and the color digitally.
