René Gruau

René Gruau (4 February 1909 – 31 March 2004) was a renowned fashion illustrator whose exaggerated portrayal of fashion design through painting has had a lasting effect on the fashion industry.

left-handed: north and kaia.  ballpoint pen, photoshop.
More non-dominant illustrations.  Posted the drawing of this one on twitter a while ago, but it took a long while to color.  (Mostly due to going in and digitally re-coloring the rain with my left hand.)
For those keeping up with my health issues: my right hand is feeling minutely better from its respite, I appreciate the concern and the nice messages.  I’ve now had an MRI but have not been diagnosed yet.  Thanks everyone for your patience with me.

I did an all day life drawing session yesterday at Center Stage Gallery in Burbank. I used my Cintiq Companion for the whole thing… I know I’m supposed to do life drawing on paper, but I just love the freedom of the Cintiq. I learned to draw almost entirely digitally so to me it’s the most comfortable and familiar. 
I’m very inspired by illustrators like Rene Gruau and Bob Peak and the ladies they had posing were so perfect for that. Seriously, beautiful highly professional models who had super elegant poses. It was really an awesome day. I’ll post more form it later.
This one I took home and finished up a bit with the help of Kyle T. Webster’s inking brushes and water color brushes: https://gumroad.com/kyletwebster

I don’t know if I already reblogged this, but if I did, I don’t care. Too flawless not to have on my blog.

Spring Stories. Greg Harris (American, b 1953). Oil on canvas.
Though his subject matter is varied, Harris is most well known for his paintings of beautiful and sensitive women in period settings. He carries forth the traditions of impressionism, while modifying and redefining the art form to make it his own.
