Men Fashion sketches on a transparent paper

The video for today: Men Fashion sketches on a transparent paper. Finally, a fashion tutorial to see how to design some men clothes. First, use pencil to minimally sketch the silhouette of the body. There is no problem if you don’t know how to draw the male body.

I will show you a simple technique that works every time: use transparent paper to sketch some main areas in the male body. Just leave some small pencil traces or some key points to know where the face will be positioned. This is the most important.

You will find transparent paper in each shop, and they come in white, red, blue and many other colors. Mine is transparent meaning white transparent paper.

After the minimal sketching, I used white Posca marker – large size and then a white liner, to add some details. The source of inspiration is the image in the left side of the screen. So i took the branches as a source of inspiration. I transformed them into graphic patterns to create a heavy volume for the coat.

Then, with black Copic marker i added the big surfaces to help the white graphic lines be even more obvious. For the face and face details i used art and graphic twin makers to underline the shadows. With a pastel pencil i filled the areas where the hands or the gloves are and then, with a brush, i used gold acrylic to add some details.

I just filled the empty spaces with gold, as you can see. On transparent paper, there is no need to add too much water, because this can ruin your sketch. The paper will have wrinkles. For the hair, i used black marker from Copic and then, i added some highlights with white, on the glossy parts of the face.

Once you finished the drawing, you can try to see how your transparent paper will look like when superposed to white paper, black or colored one. See what better works for you and then use a tape to stick them together. For the other 2 designs, the process will be the same. Now sit back and enjoy the rest of the video.

How to use patterns to create a fashion sketch

Before watching this video below, please see the video before named How to generate patterns that can lead to fashion costumes. After generating the patterns and sketching some ideas inspired by them, now it’s the moment to go further: the presentation of what you have done until now.

I choose collage as a technique and, as you can see, i started to draw the human figure helped by a transparent paper. You can use it if you want to shortcut the anatomy a little because, what interests us now is the spectacular aspect of the presentation. I used markers but colored pencils and pastels work too, especially if you will use your fingers or a paper pencil to blur the lines a little bit. This will help you create the volume of the face.

After finishing this part and after you are happy with the result, you can go to the costume. I used Posca white markers because I like the effect this big size markers lives on the transparent paper. Then, with a fan brush I played a little and after that, i used a white pastel pencils for the hair. What is nice is that with a pastel you can obtain different degrees of intensity – compared to a marker that will leave similar traces, no matter how hard or soft you will press on the surface of the paper.

Then, with Copic pink marker i added the background. For the glitter part, of course, i used white Posca once again. Every time you feel the drawing is too fuzzy or blurred, you can come up with a black or dark pencil to add some more accents. Now is the moment to take some dried patterns that i painted last movie and to use them in my costume. You can apply the patterns flat or tridimensional as you can see for the right shoulder.

Thank you for watching my video and reading the post, waiting for your comments and until next time, please subscribe if you want to see more.

How to generate patterns that lead to fashion costumes

There are some ways of expressing your creativity through different wet techniques. In this video I will show you more and then, wait until the end of the video to see where all these can lead us. First, I played with my brush and black ink. Try different approaches: wet or dry surfaces, soft lines or bold ones, dots, transparency or graphical lines.

You can try this exercise in colored watercolors or inks. Another thing you can do is to use different tools to obtain interesting patterns. This time, this fan brush inspired me to create textures like you can see. A pen or a needle that can scratch the surface of the paper could be nice too.

Then, I used a bamboo tool to obtain soft lines. Playing with wet surfaces can have a nice effect. Sit back to see how many different techniques there are and then, wait to see how I used all these in a fashion costume.

Now these are some examples of what you can do and what kind of traces your tools can leave. These are dried because I did them before the shooting of this video. I will quickly go through them, just to make my point that these are various ways of playing in black and white.

After deciding you had enough patterns, you can start sketching. Always trace the shape of the outfit with a pencil. Then,cut some interesting parts from the papers you already have. Do not glue the parts from the beginning but rather arrange them to see if they match one to each other. If not, you can always come back and add some contrast or use another pattern.

Do not over-work one area of the costume. As I previously said, leave some empty spaces or a black area to have a contrast. A wide Copic marker will do. Then, for sure, you will need a colored area and if you decide to go for black and white in your costume, go for a colored background. Then, with a Posca white marker add details if you want.

For the second sketch, repeat the process and use the same colors: pink and the 2 non-colors: black and white – just to make sure you have a unity in your collection. In my second video related to this subject i will show you how to better present your works in order to put them in your portfolio – if interested to apply to a fashion university.

See you next time and until then, please do not forget to leave me a thumbs up or a comment if you liked my video. And, as always, please subscribe if you didn’t do it until now.
