I have finally built my website

Finally got a webpage built now: feel free to have a look around it. Took me a while, its my first attempt at building a website so hopefully I will improve more in the future. I was inspired by using colourful frames so tried to incorporate this into most of my pages to make it more cohesive.

Fashion Layouts

At the moment I've been playing around with drawing fashion models in magazines and then trying to use these drawings in some layout ideas. This is something I would love to explore more as I have always had an interest in fashion and reading fashion magazines since I was little. So why not combine my interests of Fashion and drawing.

 This the first one I have done of this set and idea. I think the thing which took me the longest is the jacket, who knew that repeatedly drawing small lines could be so relaxing …

It would be great to get some feedback. Which one do you guys prefer?

Fiddler on the Roof

Paper Cut Poster 

Sorry guys,I haven't updated in a while as I have been busy with my new project, which has been really fun! The brief was to create a film poster (after picking a film from a hat). The film I choose was Fiddler on the Roof. I hadn't seen it before but after watching it I found it really interesting. The plot had a lot of elements which I felt I could work with and incorporate into my poster. Oh and one thing we had to do which I haven't mentioned is create the poster initially from paper cut outs.

Website Ideas

Website Designs 

For one of our briefs at Uni, we got asked to design a website for oursleves. This will allow us to display our work up and also allow us to have something which we can constantly update. I wanted my website to have a slight vintage feel, as this reflects my work and my interests. I choose a neutral colour for the background as i wanted the picture frames and the content to draw the viewer in. I then added a scan of the edges of an old book to create the texture at the top. 

For my portfolio page I want to try and create a Lightbox effect when you click on the images they will get bigger. So the next step is onto Dreamweaver ...... 

Fireworks at Bitts Park

Not work related but I had to post some pictures from the fireworks in Carlisle last night, they where pretty amazing!

Sticking and designing Layouts

Layouts for the summer project. 

These are some of the layouts which I designed using collages from magazines.  It was interesting to use paper rather than going straight to the Mac to design. I think designing this way gave me more freedom to play around and probably meant that i got better results as well.

Random Sketches from Anatomy books, I plan to fill another sketch book with more drawings of people from real life rather than books. I also want to look more at tone and light to improve the quality of my drawings.
