How to Draw Women in Fashion

Fashion designers must know how to draw the human body so they can design their outfits. You will learn how to use a basic framework to draw female fashion models. Also, learn how to use references properly to gain inspiration.

Skill level:Moderately Challenging

Things you need

PencilsFine-liner or ballpoint penA4 white paper (standard printer paper available everywhere)Felt-tip pens, crayons, marker pens or paintsEraserPencil sharpener

Instructions

1 Find reference images of fashion models and women in natural poses. These reference images will help you draw the female figure with accuracy and provide some inspiration when designing your own outfits.

2 Sketching lightly, begin by drawing a simple stick figure in the pose that you want and break down the female body into basic shapes. Circles and ovals work well for heads, triangles work well for the upper body and torse and cylinder tube shapes work well for the limbs.

3 Use the reference images and start to build up the body mass of your female figure adding the muscles and skin with accuracy. Remember to keep your pencil strokes faint and avoid too much erasing.

4 Note that at this point, you can continue to sketch, adding details to the face, hair and adding clothes, or you can finish off your basic figure sketch by drawing over the pencil lines you want to keep with a fine liner pen and photocopy the template so it can be used over and over.

5 Remember that if you continue the sketch with the intention of adding details, you must study your reference images further to add details to the face and hair. You can design an outfit for your female figure to wear but you will need to use references to see how certain items of clothing fit around the body. Take some time with this step as there are many details to get right.

6 Note that if you finished your sketch by adding clothes, or stopped once the basic figure was drawn, you will be finishing the sketch by drawing over the pencil lines you want to keep with a fine liner pen. Be careful here as you cannot erase mistakes. Let the pen ink dry for a few moments before erasing the pencil to avoid smudging.

7 Add some colour to your drawing if you did a complete sketch with details and clothes, or photocopy your female figure template if you drew only that. Marker pens are the best way to add colour and look the most professional.

Tips and warnings

Get as much reference as you can for accurate drawings and great inspiration

Use a technical pencil for clean lines

Use marker pens to colour your images and give them a professional look

Pens can leak so be aware of this

Don't trace your reference as you will learn nothing
