  • All right. So let's draw a figure.One thing I always start out with a pencil,

  • because you can always erase it, and it's a good way to just get the basis going.

  • So I always start with the head. Just think about proportion as you're doing it. The head, then the neck.

  • We do a straight line under the neck. A good trick is to make an X here for the body. And

  • it's great that we're doing this in pencil, as I said before,

  • because all of this can go away later.

  • From here, we work with a lot of elongated triangles. I'm going have this girl have her

  • hand on her hip. So I'm doing these elongated triangles, even a little triangle for the hand,

  • because you're going to smooth it out later. We'll give her a little arm, hanging down.

  • It can even cross into the hand, as I just did. We'll give her some legs, and

  • you basically segment the legs into triangles.

  • This is how you establish the kneecaps, you do like little inverted triangle that way.

  • And even a little inverted triangle for the foot, as well.

  • All right. Now we go in and we smooth it all out.

  • She kind of has a short neck, but I'm not that concerned, I can always erase that and fix it, so whatever.

  • Basically drawing her outer silhouette now. I'll give her some bust, give her some hips.

  • This is such a great trick because everybody knows how to draw a triangle, and then you're just smoothing over, smoothing over.

  • She's turning out on the curvier side, but I can always fix that later as well.

  • I'll give her her feet. Which I probably want her in high heels.

  • All right. So, once you've gotten this process down, you've gotten it all smoothed out,

  • you're happy with this, you're happy with that, and in fashion illustration you always elongate the form.

  • And the reason why is you have more room to render the clothing.

  • And that is why we make them so tall and lanky. It gives us more space to render details.

  • Okay, now I go in with my pen. I like a nice roller pen, you can use felt tip, whatever you like.

  • And I ink it all in. I hate drawing hands, but I will give a good attempt for you.

  • I'll just give her like a weird mitten, but whatever, you can fix that later. That's why we have White-Out.

  • It's never a bad idea just to put her hands behind her body,

  • because it's all about the clothes, it's really not about her hands.

  • And even if I'm doing these lines kind of feathery, you can always go over it again

  • later with a thicker pen and really tighten it up. I'll give her some calves, a foot,

  • and I'll have her have some high-heeled shoes on. She's pivoting her foot out.

  • I'll lose this calf on this side and give her a calf on that side that tells me that her foot is

  • being pivoted out. I'll give her a crotch.

  • All right, so I've done the basic structure, so now I go in with my eraser and I get rid of all of the pencil.

  • That arm is not pretty, but whatever, I can fix that later.

  • So after a few little corrections, she'll be good to go, you can scan her into your computer. And

  • that's how you draw a figure.

All right. So let's draw a figure.One thing I always start out with a pencil,
