50 Beautiful Feminine Illustrations and Artworks

Advertisement

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and so is the quality of femininity. Exploring this for many artists takes on a diversity of themes. From exploring the pleasures of being a girl to a simple childhood memory, each artist embodies this message in its unique way and choice of medium.

The collection of renderings selected in this episode of the Monday Inspiration series, 50 beautiful and creative feminine illustrations is sure to please your feminine side. And if your feminine side is non-existent — beautiful women have always been and remain an excellent inspiration.

Please notice: this showcase was supposed to present unusual styles, ideas and approaches to the illustration of a woman — not just some beautiful pictures. Some examples are hilarious; the other ones are somber. Hopefully, everybody will find something new and interesting for himself / herself. At the bottom of the article, you’ll find further sources to explore feminine illustrations on the Web and find artists that exude girly.

James Jean
Artists run the gamut in terms of style, approach, and output. There are those who suffer to produce work while others create with relative ease. And then there are those who gush with creativity, ideas spilling from their minds like blood rushes to the heart. James Jean is this type of artist.

    don’t leave out Joe Sorren. I suspect many of these fine illustrators were influenced by him.

    It continues to depress me that only skinny and/or anorexic women are considered “beautiful and inspiring”. At least there are a few healthy beautiful children.

    So ‘feminine’ = picture of a woman? How cheap.

    if one were to make feminine artwork that didn’t include the human form, apparently, one would only need to include balloons, bubbles, flowers and candy. i’m not sure how i feel about that. oh and voluminous hair and crowns, those seem quite popular too. why is femininity linked so closely to childhood? it feels lolita-esque. i’d like to see anti-feminine illustrations–and by that i don’t mean masculine, but art work of women that go beyond what we already know as being representative of femininity.

    It amazes me, the vehemence displayed by some of these comments. While art is meant to provoke (and, as such, I’m sure the artists are not entirely unfamiliar with this kind of response just as, given their immense talent, they are accustomed to receiving praise), there is a particular venom injected into any discourse online, an inarticulate anger shrouded in the illusion of anonymity, that prevents any real conversation from taking place. Unfortunately, this has become a typically ignorant forum (evidenced by incongruous sentences) wherein people feign intelligence by dissecting femininity and attack the artists without offering any real, meaningful conclusions.
