Fashion Sketching 101: How to Draw Fashion Figures

Fashion Sketching 101: How to Draw Fashion Figures | Drawing and Painting Tutorials | Scoop.it

One of the cornerstones of fashion school is learning how to sketch fashion figures. However, as fashion school students learn, there’s a big difference between proper body proportions in art and in fashion.

However, in fashion, the body proportions are elongatedin order to better represent the models, who are above average in height. Because of this, the figures become 8-10 heads tall.
