Are these figments of your imagination or do you use a reference to draw this?...and what inspires you when doin a painting?

well most of it are just figments of my imagination... but i do look into styles of art for reference.. for example the background on this particular painting is inspired by some chinese art i saw back then... its just amazing how they draw and portray they're mountains... the headdress i put together from references too... so as the clothes... but she's an original... i just pick up bits and pieces and try to come up with something unique... if that makes any sense? LOL

Oh yes, that makes alot of sense....sometimes I would do that too but most are from my imagination too...if I see something I like from another artist's work, I will translate that into my style and use it so I am always learning new things and improving style came from reading lots of Millie the Model comics when i was young....wanted to be a fashion designer so I loved those comics...then I moved on to Vogue magazines and then followed the works of Alberto Vargas and Olivia and lots of fashion illustrators

oh you know what that reminds me... i have a notebook full of clothes and dresses i styled myself... that was back in college! and I'm a graduate now... whew! time flies... oh well the sad thing is my friend borrowed it and she happened to misplace it and she cant find it so she could return it to me...
