4. provide 11 random facts about yourself.

my fashion illustrations

these are some of my illustrations for my portfolio i was using different media to create these in the first one i used watercolour and pen i thought this looked successful. Then for the next illustration i experimented with collaging with the real fabrics used for the garment. Then lastly i used manga makers for the last illustration. I like manga makers because they stay wet for longer and you can blend them, also they don't make it look to streaky like other brand marker.

so what do you think?
