Hi, my name's Jessica, and I'm an artist. And today, we're going to draw a fitted coat. So, we've got our model here, lovely lady. And, we're going to make a girl coat, because that's my artistic choice today. So, this girl is pretty, pretty girl. And, she's got kind of a cute, trendy haircut here. And, when we do her coat, right, we're just going to draw her body like we normally would. And then, we're going to kind of put the coat on her. So, she's got a hand in her pocket maybe, and then this other hand, she's going to be holding a purse. It's, like, a cute little bag there. So, we've got her body. Now, one thing we do want to do is we want to make sure to draw her figure, because the coat is going to fit to her figure. So, this coat is a little bit long, because it's kind of a winter coat, and then her legs come out from the bottom, and there are her feet. And, her hand is in her pocket, like that. So, you would take that line out to show that her hand is in her pocket, and put a line there. So, now we've got sort of the vest part of the jacket, which is going to come down. And, we're going to have a couple buttons along the side. And, just draw a line that goes down the coat, like that. Underneath this coat, you know, she could be wearing a dress with ruffles, or a striped shirt, or what have you. But, we're really just focusing on the coat for now. And, as you can see, it fits to her body and her torso really well. So, that is how you draw a fitted coat.
