Final Major Project continued...

I am now part way through my FMP, currently doing my drawing sheets. I aim to make my drawing sheets eye catching so that they stand out, I want them bright and vibrant with some with textured backgrounds to reflect my theme. I have been drawing from real fruit and veg and flowers, as well as my own photographs.

My Bay


Fashion Research

Above is some of the research I have up in my bay that I look at for inspiration while drawing and will be looking at for when I start developing.

Before I started my drawing sheets I created a Mood Board by picking out certain images that reflected my theme. I also chose specific fashion research that inspired me and created a Fashion board.

To create some of my backgrounds for my drawing sheets I mixed up vibrant colours using procion and acid dyes and poured, splattered and rolled the colours on the pages.

Here are some of the drawings I have created so far...

I went a little crazy with printing the grapefruit,
Lovely textures though!

Feel free to leave comments of what you think of my project so far, I will keep adding things as I do them to show my design process.
