Just finished up the Fashion Illustration I class at Portland Sewing (update: Now Portland Fashion Institute). Its been decades since I did any figure drawing, but the proportions for figure drawing did need to be overcome to fit into the fashion mind-set. (It’s mostly in the legs!) Here are the three drawings I did for the final of the class.
The white lines are corrections from the teacher. (I forgot to put the bust line in, etc). Great class. Just the right amount of instruction and informal-ness. I’ll be taking the second class in July. We finally will get to work with color! I’m hoping that this education will prove useful when submitting knit design ideas to the magazines (my previous drawings always looked a bit dumpy, now I know why–notice I’m not posting them).
