A Wardrobe That Even Carrie Bradshaw Would Envy…Whimsical Fashionista Illustration by Joana Miranda

A few days ago, I posted a preliminary pencil sketch and a partially rendered version of the illustration I was working on.  The partially rendered version gave me some perspective on the composition and I decided to go back to the drawing board to rework it.  (For those of you who missed that post, I’ve posted the preliminary pencil sketch again below:)

Now see if you can spot the differences (hint…this fashionista may be slightly off balance in her Manolos, but her style choices are spot on!)

    • Hi Helen,

      Yes, the chair was too small in the first version. I also relocated the other pair of shoes (and enlarged them). But, more importantly, I redid Josephine’s head placement/angle and the placement of her legs since they looked too static and not quite right in the first version.

      I had a lot of fun doing the illustration from sketch through revisions to final version, and I sold a print of it immediately on Etsy. Yay!

      It’s quite hot and HUMID here. Ick. I hope you are having better weather in Milwaukee.

      🙂 Joana
