Quick Fashion Sketch & Class updates
Quick fashion sketch
Every now and then I doodle at work to keep my portfolios fresh. Here is a quick sketch I made this morning to freshen up my fashion design sketches. I drew it with a Cobalt multiliner onto color laser copier paper. When coloring, I did not use any kind of blending groups, as I just randomly grabbed colors from my desk. You'll note that I used some colors in my shadows that had nothing to do with the main tones, like V17 as a shadow in many areas, as well as BV00.
I added yellows, purples, and faint blues to the sky behind the drawing just to liven up the illustration a bit.
The nice thing about doodles I do like this, is that they end up sitting on my desk for a week, where, I will frequently look at it and make a minor adjustment or tweak. In a week this picture will look much more refined and detailed.
(p.s. even since posting this photo, I have added glitter pen and opaque white and darkened the contrast...always tweaking and refining!)
