Fashion Illustration Sketches…

From time to time, I teach fashion illustration workshops for teens. I love sketching the clothed figure in a loose gestural manner. You can say so much with just a few lines and strokes of charcoal. This is a great way to practice seeing form and value and capturing gesture quickly. These were done in about 2 minutes each as demos for the class. The purpose is not to create a detailed drawing, but to capture a sense of the clothing and how it drapes on the figure, as well as the gesture of the figure itself.
