Long time no see. But finally I’ve said I would make some time to continue writing. Today, a post about how you should start a fashion illustration. In fact, any draw you will do in the future.
Firstly, you sketch the AXES. There are a lot of positions in which the human body can be represented but in short, you must see the lines of the shoulders and hips. (In my drawing: segments AB and CD). The rule is simple: when AB is up, CD goes down. See below the schematic representation of the parts of the body.
Secondly, after drawing the AXES, you will draw the PRIMARY SHAPES: you decompose the body into cylinders, spheres, cones, cubes and so on.
Thirdly, you will go into the ANATOMICAL DETAILS. You will imagine a “skin” covering all the primary shape elements and cover them with smooth shapes.
