Chou-Tac Chung – Nike tennis ware, 2009
From left to right:
0- Final result
1- Body movement
Choose a body with a curvy position. In fashion illustration,
it gives the
clothing more life!
> Draw very light
Before drawing the clothes, draw a simplified naked body.
Note: Some of you may have learnt how to draw fashion models with 2D contours. It is a great method. However, I recommend to approach it like how cartoon animators draw characters- a 3D approach
3- Clothing and Pattern
Add the clothes on the body base. > Erase unnecessary lines, and keep the contours.
> Add patterns.
4- Colors and shading
Choose your color palette.
> Add flat colors.
> Add shading and lighting.
Increase your pen pressure at each stage. Lighter you start, more “mistakes’” you can afford.
