Drawing Request: Baby Budget Blog

Once again, I am back for another Drawing Request, one of my art subjects for anyone who wanted to be featured in their illustration version (check here).  To be honest, I have never been happy with most of my past illustrations, that this time, I tried a different medium for my art piece, the water color.  Surprisingly, I rather found it the best media that was much easier to use.  To let you know, I have been using colored pencils, colored pens, and colored powders and it did not satisfied myself.

From the fashion capital of United States, I would like to introduce to you, Amy McDonald, the author of Baby Budget Blog.  Amy is best identified for her classy fashion style and adorned wardrobe.  I called her once the "jewelry queen", but Lo! Wait 'til you also see her wide collection of expensive and colorful shoes, ( you can see it here).  She has every design of shoes in almost every colors and prints from suede, fabric, nylon, and leather! 

One of Amy's most interesting topics is her outfit video styling from her new wardrobe pieces for the season of her choice.  Her style really depends on her mood for the day. She doesn't like to corner herself into one style box. She rather like to sample all or tend to go for timeless pieces that have both visual and textural interest!

Amy currently works in a marketing department in a law firm company in New York City, so despite her job all day, she can still find time for her hobbies such as writing, blogging, shopping, and traveling. At her most leisure times, she finds eating, cooking, sleeping, and reading as her satisfactions.

In this illustration, Amy sent me three photos to choose one from among them.  It was difficult for me to choose one because all of them are worth posting for an illustration.  So to be fair for the three sexy and beautiful photos, I incorporated some of the pieces into her full body shot picture.

As for me, Amy's smile is one of her untouchable and rare appearances and her figure is her best asset. 
She delivers clothes that portrays the modern day woman.  I actually thought that her personality is bold rather than shy.  She pops in bright colors and her poses are not forceful.  Do visit her blog and be amazed as I am as you share with her the same passion, care, obcessions and love to our wardrobe.

"I am quite moody, especially in the morning but I am typically a go getter, bubbly, lovable, friendly,
shy and passionate person as long as I'm not hungry or tired! Hey, I'm an Aries!"
