Learn how to draw posed figures for fashion illustration

This comprehensive reference provides hands-on techniques for created posed figures for fashion illustration. The first section illustrates various examples of nude and semi-nude poses (male and female). Later chapters illustrate the same poses wearing sportswear, sleepwear, dresses, suits, trousers, and casual and evening wear. The poses in each chapter are organized to show a progression including seated model (crossed legs, straight legs, seated on chair, seated on the floor); standing model (frontal view, three-quarter view, side-view from the back with crossed legs and straight legs); and moving model (running, walking, dancing). Each chapter begins with an introduction which is followed by images with detailed explanatory captions. With a focus on shape and form, the content covers marker and pencil techniques for a complete range of illustrated poses.
