Hi, I'm Rosalie and I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a person wearing a large coat. So I'm going to start with the collar of the coat. It's just going to be exaggeratedly large and sort of stylish, so, here's one arm coming out. It's a woman in a large fashion coat and she's got her hand like that and the coat is sort of coming down. Let's say it's belted and it's like this. I'm just drawing in some folds of fabric and there's the other part of the coat and there's the other sleeve and the sleeve is like elongated and this is her hand and then there's the other side of the collar and it comes around. There's her head, sort of I guess it would be a little bigger and the collar is coming up. It's just a really big overblown kind of belted overcoat and I'm going to put a hat on her because she's, you know, all dressed up and kind of stylish. I'm even going to put a feather in her hat, like a plume style feather and her hair is like this coming around and she's got sunglasses on, a nose, mouth, there's the sunglasses. She's just outside. There's a big button on the coat and you could shade it in a little and there's her foot and there's her other foot. It's just a really big coat and you could even have like some more fabric flowing back. And that's how i draw a person wearing a large coat.
