MODULE 1 • Childrenswear Illustrations

Step Description
1A Here is an example of an illustration from a student. Her name is Callista Wolff, and she does little kids that are in the age range of 8-10. Wonderful examples of modeling, texture and she does them with pencil and gouache.
1B Notice all of these varieties of texture, knitwear, quilting, ribbing, and print.
1C Look at her head, she is starting to think about a character. She is almost like a storybook character or children’s book illustration. The fun thing about childrenswear is that you can play with proportion because the feet are huge, her skin is pale and they have a stance whereas they are pigeon-toed.
