Fashion Portraits

Some more practice on portraits (these ones are imagined). I actually prefer to let the paintbrush guide me (the photoshop one), and surprise me with the result!

3 Step Fashion Illustration

Here's some insight into my usual method of sketching a pose and a fashion, in 3 steps. Start with a basic pose - if you're not as skilled sketching without anything to look at for guidance, try searching the web for a fashion model or a template. Utilize a wooden posing figure if you have one, or a ball jointed doll (these are GREAT for sketching fashion)!

Sketch the clothes overtop, making note of where you think gravity and the body would affect how a garment rests or falls.

Add color, a pattern, footwear and anything else that might compliment your new fashion!

Fashion Collection - LadyBug

This small collection was great to design. With only two colors, and some variations in value, red and black become the theme for this bunch.
