Aiste Stancikaite


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
A self-initiated project taking a single coloured pencil drawing approach towards fashion illustration. Moving away from the classical traditions of realism and into a more unusual style of contemporary drawing with a surrealist edge, this method lets me create something that would likely be absent with an entirely lifelike palette.

How was the illustration used:
Portfolio piece.

How did you make this work:
This piece is a single-coloured pencil drawing on paper. The simplicity of this creative technique allows me to show the magnitude of one colour - the spectrum of light to dark that can be created when constructing the form and detail shows the visual complexity and variety of tones available.
