Fashion Illustration - Stick Figures

One of the classes I'm taking this fall is fashion illustration, which is turning out to be much more fun than I expected. I really can't draw to save my life, never mind drawing people! So it was a relief to learn that we would be starting out drawing stick fashion figures:


Far from being basic stick figures, though, there is a bit of a proportion and height formula which makes it easy to follow. Understanding that each line represents a basic bone structure also helps.


Occasionally, adding props and a martini spices up class drawing time a little. :)


It's amazing how much you can get out of just a few well proportioned lines!

The next step has been to start "blocking" our stick figures, or adding a bit of muscle to our bony ladies.


"Runway model." Hahaha.



Some of these drawings are actually based on fashion models, but most are strictly out of my imagination. You can see various notes that I've taken along the way; if you're wondering about this last lady and the wall of text between her legs, I was jotting down some pointers my instructor had for her crotch and thigh placement.

The next things we are working on are developing our leg drawing skills and faces. I've had a lot of difficulty blocking out feet, so this is going to be a slog.
