How to Draw a Fashion Figure

How to Draw a Fashion Figure: video lesson

This is the foundation for so many things we can do!

In this video, you can get a real feel for the motion and movement of sketching as I let you know step -by-step what i’m doing when I’m drawing the fashion figure.

This method is CUSTOMIZABLE FOR ALL BODY TYPES!!!!

Once you get the basic down, you can widen or lengthen components of the body anywhere, as needed, to match the body type that you need!!!

And if you feel like you can’t, email me at info@fashionillustrationtribe.com or tag me on instagram with a photo of the body type you’d like to match, and I’ll help you create that figure.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this video:

  • how to draw, period. Tools you can use for a lifetime
  • pro techniques for how to build bodies, constantly, using a process that WORKS!
  • create STRAIGHT and POSED figures
  • take the “very -complex- human- body” and learn to break it down into basic shapes and components that come together in to a croquis template
  • draw a long with me and create a figure that you can trace over again and again as a designing tool
  • debunk the myth that you need to draw “perfectly” (who does??) and see how the PROCESS of drawing and building up the figure gives you an “edge” and a deeper understanding of the body and how it works!
  • What is a “plumb line” or “balance line” and how it is used in fashion drawing for standing figures so they don’t look like they are tipping over! (i mean, how stylish is THAT??)
  • a new (and perhaps surprising) way to hold your pencil and approach the page
  • lots of tips!!!
