FASHION ILLUSTRATION
FOR BEGINNERS

Start sketching your own fashion designs even if you’ve never illustrated fashion before and you’re a complete beginner!

Fashion Illustration is the process of sketching and coloring your designs with markers, pencils and other mixed media to get your fashion designs on paper.

You’re ready to bring your creations to life, but you have no idea where to start and don’t want to waste time trying to figure it all out on your own.

HEY, ASPIRING ILLUSTRATOR, I HEAR YOU!

     DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

If any of these statements have you going, “What the heck is going on, get out of my head!?” then keep reading – you’re in the right place, lovely 🙂

No Prior Experience Required

This will work for you:

Even if you’re not a strong artist.

Even if you don’t have any experience making fashion illustrations yet.

Even if you can’t sketch the fashion figure on your own, or know how to shade.

Even if you hate drawing hands or faces.

Even if you don’t have much time.

PICTURE THIS...

Now imagine what it would feel like when you sell your first custom illustration and mail it off to your first fan!

Picture being able to take on custom illustration requests like wedding dresses, that are in big demand as heirloom paintings and keepsakes.

What would it feel like to know that you could illustrate an entire collection, for any future season or wardrobe that you want?

Imagine selling your custom illustrations to your fans and knowing that you have a skill that most people don’t have, and that you can create prints to sell in your shop.

Think about how your family and friends will be super impressed and how they’ll brag about your fashion illustration skills to people they know.

But you've heard the stories about illustrating being hard and you're hesitant. You're asking yourself questions like...

  • What if my designs don’t look right and I don’t know how to fix them?
  • What happens if no one wants me to illustrate for them and I can’t get any requests?
  • How will I ever be able to shade like a pro?
  • What if I’m horrible at illustrating and everything turns out wrong?
  • What if I’ve never sketched before and don’t have time to go back to school to learn how?
  • How will I know that my designs are done and don’t need anymore tweaking?
  • Can I really learn how to sketch my own designs?
  • Is it even possible to sketch the fashion figure on my own, without a template?

I know there can be a lot of questions and confusion when you’re starting to illustrate for the first time. If you don’t have an outline to follow, it can be easy to get discouraged and struggle getting your ideas on paper. Without guidance and support, it can be tough to make any progress at all!

That’s why I’ve created my step by step course,

Fashion Illustration for Beginners

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FOR BEGINNERS

An online course where you’ll learn exactly how to illustrate your first designs, and walk away with templates that can be used to design ANY future illustration that you want (in any gender, including different sizes too).

I just watched all the videos available today… and I can’t wait to put what I learned to the test!
