Fashion Illustration and how it applies to the Figure—Let’s break away for a minute and explore something that almost became a lost art. Longer, leaner figures and other aspects of fashion illustration that I use in my ordinary “everyday people” figures to “make them prettier.” We’ll take a look at salon portraits and figures that really were romanticized but still remained in “reality.” I’ll demonstrate a fashion figure and then demonstrate an average figure that I add a fashion attitude to. See some video stills here.
Assignment: Copy fashion illustrations for practice and using photo reference, practice "fashionizing" everyday people.
