Step Description
1 Start this lesson, by downloading the fashion croquis and the reference swatch supplied with the lesson. Print the fashion croquis to use as your canvas.
2 Begin with the beveled-edge side of your cool grey marker. Create one continuous stroke, slightly away from the dress outline, beginning at the neck to the waist. Make 2 short strokes suggesting the fabric folds below the waist.
3 Create another continuous stroke from below the folds, that tapers at the knee. Create folds at the knee and then taper the stroke from the knee to the hem.
4 Accentuate the form of the bust first on the left-side and then on the right.
5 Lay in the folds of the fabric with short strokes at the halter neckline of the dress on the left and right-side.
6 Color the left side of the body with a continuous stroke from the waist to the thigh, again, slightly away from the edge of the drawing.
