It is also essential to draw the fashion figure in a way that best expresses the design idea and the mood of the garment or the whole collection. I have been focusing on developing my fashion illustration and for the past several months I have attended a weekly live model painting sessions at a local college.
Below are several of my sketches. I so enjoy the class! It is quiet as all attendees focus on the model's pose and capturing it on paper. The models - both female and male - do a lot of poses for various lengths of time. Some last a minute; others 30 minutes.
