Shoe illustration, continued.

Mojito sculptural shoe illustration by Barbara Dupuis.  Messing around in Illustrator, trying to move beyond just line drawings into actual colour.  Used gradients to suggest some depth, and layered a few strategic highlights. Not bad for a first attempt.

For all that I love fancy high heeled shoes - I never actually wear them.  Enter the Marc Jacobs striped calf hair flat. Practical for work, yet still stylish.

Continued from yesterday.  They might not be comfortable, but they’re still gorgeous.

McQ Alexander McQueen cutout pointed patent leather pumps.  I love the cutout and the colour.  I can’t say if they’d be comfortable, but I can say they are beautiful.

Christian Louboutin Flo 120 patent leather peep-toe pump.  Because they’re bright and cheery for spring.  And because I love red and yellow together.

Repeating pattern, inspired by a crown in Oblivion.

The foundation of a great house?  A great laundry room (in my opinion).  Course that could be important to me because I really enjoy clothing.  Sketching out some ideas for my future laundry room.
