When people hear fashion illustration they think something extra. Some people think it’s something you need an out-of-ordinary talent to do. While fashion illustration may be aided by some form of talent, it’s also pretty easy once you understand what you need to know about fashion illustrations and how to draw fashion illustrations.
The problem is that most times, we try to conform to some unwritten standard as our measure of good or bad. It is good to achieve some form of realism in your illustrations, however, it is also important to do you.
We’re about to go into a next phase of my guide to Fashion designing series. This time, we’re going to start illustrating the clothes on our croquis. Before that, I need you all to know a few things about illustrations and how to draw fashion illustrations.
