Fashion Design Final Sketch 1 by Adella Fashion Design Final Sketch 1 by Adella
This was one of the three sketches I did for my Fashion Sketching II class. The design is not by me; unfortunately we were not allowed to design our own outfits. The coat I found in one magazine clipping and the skinny pants in another. I thought they'd look interesting together so I combined them. The final exam was not a creative examination but a technical one.

Media:

Colored Pencil
Prismacolor Markers
Micron Pens

anyway the scanner at my school sucks so it really didn't take down a very sharp image. Perhaps I'll try to scan it again next week.

She's very tall and skinny because she is the 9 headed fashion figure. This was done on purpose and is not a proportion accident.

very nice.- I love the way the skinny pants have a shine, almost like leather- very detailed.
im using colored pencil only for my designs, but i want to get into better mediums etc...
Can you rate some of my work, and give constructive criticism.

You know what I find interesting? That your fashion sketching style, while it is different from your "hobby drawing", it still looks similar.

And that's a good thing.

I really like this.

The only things I can say about this critique wise is 1) the back of her jacket is missing where you'd see it between her legs, 2) her left leg looks like it's doing something funky, like it's not quite on the ground, and 3) Be sure to check how you draw the feet. These look a little like horse hooves. I know you're emulating the front view of how a foot is in elevated heels, but from the front, the toes are flat against the ground while the heel and ankle are up.

Otherwise the croquis development and use of media is great, as well as your perception of fabric and how to render pattern. I would be careful on how you draw the jacket as far as the sleeves go, they look a little more like stiff tubes than fabric fitting over an arm.

:D

:lol: It's hard to draw feet. I am surprised a lot of people come into FIDM with no drawing experience, and then they shove a distorted anatomy at you before you really have a chance to understand real anatomy. If you can, find some images of feet and just practice drawing them over and over in different angles and poses. To this day I still have problems with feet (right now I'm drawing ninja turtle feet...how weird are those). I forced myself to do this when I went to Chaffey (community college) because I could not for the life of me draw feet or hands.

it's not that I can't draw feet... it's that I'm a lazy ass and a slob and don't bother to do them right. It's one of my downsides... my slovenly laziness >_<!

lol yeah, I either got caught up on other stuff during school or was lazy. Here's some of my projects from school:
[link] this one was in Houston's class. I spent all freaking week on this, and the scan is shit anyway.
[link] I don't remember whose class this was.

But all my other stuff I took out of my gallery. My art was such shit back then. DA actually helped me a lot when it came to art. A lot of teachers got pissed because all I wanted to do was markers, and I didn't want to do watercolors at all. It was a bit hard because I view my art as very private sometimes, and flashing it in front of class infront of all these people is hard. LOL I remember one time I did a group for Houston's class and I was laughing so hard I couldn't stop!

Good work with the pencil and colored pencil usage. I guess from the other comments that you are either a clothing designer or one in training. Either way, you are wonderfully gifted. :)

Keep up the great work!
