My first real assignment for Lifestyle Illustration. We had to choose an environment and then choose clothing that fit and illustrate at least two figures in each piece. I chose the Jardin Majorelle, a French botanical garden in Morocco. In my sketches I simply had my girls just standing there and it was boring that I didn't even want to do it. I talked to my TA and she told me to think about creating a story and using that. Since the dresses reminded me of fish, I decided to go with a weird under the sea theme and since my girls are sort of under water, I made them rubbery looking and squid-like. I'm still not at all happy with the first one and corrections need to be made, but I like the second.
