Golden Globes 2015

The 2015 Awards Season has officially begun, and that means more fabulous red carpet gowns than you could poke a stick at! Join me for live fashion illustration of my favorite red carpet looks....starting any minute now!

7:50pm Ok, I'm putting down my paintbrushes! In addition to the gorgeous dresses, I really loved all the smokey eyes and romantic pink lips at the Golden Globes. Thinking I might have to recreate some of those looks myself, with my fav L'Oreal Paris products! Who was your favorite from the red carpet tonight?

7:05pm Here is my finished drawing / painting of Lupita Nyong'O in Giambattista Valli. I loved this dress!

6:40pm Lupita's dress is an exercise in pointillism!

6:10pm Starting work on another gown...

5:50pm Anna Hendrick looked fantastic in Monique Lhuillier!

5:30pm On to the next lovely gown. Can you guess who this is?

5:10pm Here she is. Greer Grammer in Lorena Sarbu. She looks stunning! 

4:50pm Adding some bling. Have you guessed who it is yet?

4:35pm I've started on my first look from the red carpet. Can you guess who it is?

4:10pm I've got my supplies ready, bring on the red carpet!

Fashion Illustration Croquis

The Golden Globes Awards are tomorrow, and I can't wait! All those beautiful, luxurious gowns on the red carpet...oh my! And I guess I'm looking forward to the actual awards ceremony too. ;)

I'm planning to illustrate my favorite gowns live, as they make their appearance on the red carpet, so make sure you're following @BrownPaperBunny on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat!

In order to capture my favorites quickly, I've pre-drawn some fashion illustration croquis (templates). I looked up last year's Golden Globes and found the most common poses, and started sketching. And then I thought, what if other people sketched along with me, how much fun would that be!?

So I'm making my quick croquis sketches available as a free download, in hopes that you'll join me in sketching some fashion! The Golden Globes will be televised live on NBC's E! at 5pm ET, so sharpen those pencils! Make sure you tag @BrownPaperBunny on any drawings / paintings you upload, so I can check them out!

I usually use fashion illustration croquis in one of two ways. Either I draw them in pen or marker, and put them behind my drawing paper as a loose template, or I actually transfer them straight onto my paper and draw over the top. The choice is yours, print these out and have some fun!

So, what are your red carpet predictions for the Golden Globes? Think we'll see bold colors, or neutrals and metallics?
