    Tu-Anh: Hi, I am Tu-Anh and I am going to show you how to draw fashion for beginners. Now, I am going to show you how to draw clothes on the fashion figure. I assume, that you already chose and have traced the fashion figure of your choice. Now, we are going to take that and we are going to put it under the sketch book and now you can see it, you can not see it too clear but you can see the silhouette of the figure. So, let us say, I am going to draw a dress. Here is the fashion figure, we are going to trace it out. Basically, the same thing I did earlier, but I am just kind of tracing it out, alright. So, let us do a V-neck dress. So, what we are going to do is, we are going to start behind the neck because you do not want to draw it connected from there, they never look like paper clothes.

    I am going to draw down your V , the feet and then we are going to go down and out to the shoulders. You want to make sure you have your sleeves, your seam line and then we are going to we could have it make a short sleeve, so let us do that. If you can see here, draw the arms, there and now, we are going to go in, we are going to go in. I am going to have it a little bit loose and let us have it a little flair. The sleeves straight there go down, arms covered here. Let us see, if you want lace also around this color, then just draw some lace, lightly and you draw the shoes and down here, go down, draw your shoes and the heel. You do not have to trace exactly what you did earlier, let us see what else would we like to give it there.

    We can create some gathers right here, just a little bit and let us give it some sort of a bow. Do not forget her collar bones right there and that s how you draw clothes. Now, I am going to show you how to apply flesh color and facial features.
