Alright folks, in this clip, I'm going to teach you how to draw a fashion sketch. Alright, first thing you're going to want to do is sketch out the rough outline and design of your model, so to speak. The character that you're going to have on the blank page that your design is going to go on top of. So first, have that laid out. You know, usually the best thing to do is to draw a tall, lean character that isn't necessarily proportionally correct but that will definitely highlight the design that you are going to place on top of it. The the purpose of this sketch is to showcase your design, not to be diametrically correct, necessarily. So, get your character laid down, then start with the outer edges and sort of work your way inward. This is the best way to really tackle the design. Start from the head and work your way down, at least that's the suggestion I would give and really allow yourself to visualize the finished product and try and really accentuate the details that make this piece unique. Get in there and really explore the different possibilities. Use a pencil so that as you're drawing, if you decide you want to alter something or change something, you can easily do so and basically, from there, once you've sort of gotten the basic idea like it's firmly established, really get in there and highlight it, detail it. Give it personality, character, flair. Make it as visually interesting as you can while staying as true as you can to your vision.
