Opulent design for Illustration Friday

 

 

It has been two weeks since I entered the ‘Sock It to Me’, design a sock competition and I’m rather excited to tell you that I was selected as a finalist! It was even better to find out that I was one of only thirty three chosen, just under six thousand entrants! I’ve yet to find out the results, but if my design doesn’t win, I’m very happy to have at least reached the finals. I will let you know how I got on in a future post.

In the meantime, I entered another competition. This time, for Illustration Friday. They run a competition each week and this week’s theme was ‘Opulent’.  I love to enter contests, because they are rather fun to do and are a pleasant break from my everyday design work.

The first images that sprung to mind when thinking about all things opulent, were the fashionable ladies of the eighteenth century, with their extravagant hair styles. I decided that for my illustration, I would update my female and give her an on-trend appearance, with pink coloured hair, a jewelled nose ring and a ribbon choker. I imagine my illustration would appeal to the teenage and young adult audience or for any one who is young at heart.
