Hello! I’m glad you find this page! I understand the feeling when you want to design something that you have a vision of, and you want to be able to bring it to reality or draw it on fashion figures but you don’t know how! It’s frustrated! I had been there before but I, eventually , attended a fashion school and I had an opportunity to learn many fabulous drawing skills from my professors. However, to draw fashion figures from scratch or free-hand can take a lot of time to learn and practice.
So, with that understanding in mind, I decided to produce the products that will help you out. You can get these downloadable products from my shop and you can start to do fashion drawing instantly! Let me introduce each product to you.
I published my first book “The Art of Figure Templates: Shortcut to Fashion Drawing” in June of 2021. The objective of this book is to help any beginners who have no background in Fashion Design nor expertise in drawing able to draw fashion figures successfully in a short period of time using the figure templates from the book.
The lessons inside this book include how to read fashion figure poses and dress garments on figure properly, how to draw faces, hair, make up, skin coloring technique with marker colors and much more that will help you utilize the templates successfully. See more details here. If you decide to buy the eBook version, you can print the templates and use them instantly.
The paperback version can be ordered on Amazon.com and Amazon worldwide. You can send an email to request the printable templates after you purchased the paperback version. Instruction is inside the book.
Here is the most popular fashion sketchbook from my Sketchbooks Collection on Amazon.com! If you are looking for an item to use for fashion drawing in general, I recommend the “Fashion Portfolio Sketchbook: 10 Head Fashion Figure Templates.” You can order the physical sketchbook on Amazon. If you want a printable version, please find it in my shop.
What is a 10 head fashion figure? 10 Head is a proportion we use in fashion school to draw fashion figures. It’s the most common proportion among fashion schools (in The U.S. and Europe anyway). The model figure appears to be taller and skinnier than a normal human body. However, it works great for fashion drawing.
This figure proportion is now considered to be misleading to the sensitive group such as teenagers to be exposed to such an unrealistic appearance, and that may cause an unhealthy behavior. Please be mindful about this matter.
