The next few I have to show you are the 3 illustrations I did for the fur assignment. We had to design and paint 3 different fur outfits (in 2 days) for this competition that's held internationally. If you win, you get to go to Milan and watch your design walk the runway and afterwards you get to keep it and get $8,000 scholarship money. The fact that he gave us such short notice for this assignment plus the fact that I had to stay up late finishing it (and I was NOT slacking at all) made me a little upset.
These are definitely more "fashion" proportioned, but my teacher really does give me a lot of crap for giving my ladies curves. I'm not referring to these specifically, but any kind of hip action and my drawing needs to "lose 20 pounds" Definitely the down side to this industry... all the focus on stick thin being beauty... Anyway enough about that. I wanted to show my base croquis, The basic drawing that I get right once, then trace new outfits over before transferring. You can see the ridiculous proportion better here, though I tend to make my girls look at least healthy. Look at those looong legs... haha :)
So there's a taste of some of the drawing/painting I've been doing in fashion school. I also have a lot of flats I've been doing, and some random sketches I've done in my awesome Fashionary sketchbook.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Thanks for stopping by :)
