    Fantasy pirate

    Hey, y’all, I finally finished coloring in the fantasy inspired pieces. As is evident, I used watercolor. That is the medium I am most comfortable in. The color of the undershirt got darker on the second half. I’m quite happy with how the robe/coat turned out. The color changes from lighter on top to darker towards the bottom, it goes from light blue to violet.

    Completed: Monarch

    I finally put color to the sketch. After transferring the outline onto Bristol Board, I used watercolor to get the shades I wanted. I wanted the gown to have some areas look more transparent, so I decided watercolor was the way to go. I also used a thin-tipped sharpie to outline the ruffle of the skirt. Since I was specifically inspired by the monarch butterfly, I used that species’ typical colors. You can see the sketch to watercolor transformation below:

    Pajama Bottoms

    I used some red and black flannel fabric to make my dad a pair of pajama shorts. Unfortunately, I did not have enough fabric for full length pants. I used a pattern I bought from Joann Fabrics, which is shown below. I didn’t bother making a mockup for the shorts, because of the fact that it is lounge wear and I’m using elastic for the waistband. They turned out pretty well!

    Fantasy

    I’ve been watching The Last Kingdom on Netflix. That show along with some character art from The Arcana and general pirate costumes inspired the outfits below. I’m working on putting color to them. I really enjoy the colors and overall fit of Asra’s costume, he is a character from The Arcana. The third image and figure to the right was my reference point for my own creation of the robe.
