I just finished my first semester at AAU. I took fashion illustration 1 and this class was highly beneficial. I learned how to draw the fashion model in 7 weeks! I am so proud now that I can draw what I see a lot better. By the end of the semester I had over 400 drawings, but I only picked out my favorite ones.

Techniques learned:
Blind contour: You trace around the model with your eye and draw as you go. You don't look at the paper.

Cheat a little: Similar to blind contour except you make shorter lines and look at your paper once in awhile. Drawn with charcoal, ink and brush, oil pasels, colored pencils, watercolor.

I love the gestural quality of your line, it's very organic!

Wow, you're much better than I was when I tried this! Your drawings are very distinct, you've really developed your own signature drawing style.

Thanks! I never realized how good I was until I started this class, I loved art in high school although then I wasn't as good.  Cheesy
