Fashion Illustration : How to draw a flare skirt

Hello everyone!! this is Dheeraj again with a tutorial on Fashion illustration, this will be a step-by-step tutorial, where you will learn how to draw a flared skirt.

What you need for this task :

  • Pencils
  • Markers
  • Watercolours that's it

Step 1: Create straight length

Let's start by drawing a the waistband and mark the length you want .have you noticed that both the waistband and the bottom hem are curved. Yes, because this will add realism and life to your illustration.

Step 2: Let's create the outlines of the skirt.

We need to add the skirt outlines connecting the waist to the bottom hem. Important: lines should not be completely straight. The outline pops out close to the waistband to add volume to the skirt.

Step 3: Let's create hemlines now.

As hemline is composed of multiple layers, there won’t be much symmetry in the hem. So follow the hemline direction and make it uneven.

Step 4: Put Flat Colour on the skirt

Let's start colouring the skirt, first start with a flat colour of your choice (make sure colouring should not be patchy if you are using watercolours )

Step 5: Let's create skirt texture now.

Pick a slightly darker colour and draw some lines from the belt down. Notice that not all of them reach the bottom and that they vary in weight. A few shorter lines are starting from the bottom up. They come in different length. Make sure the final result is not too busy.

Step 6: This is the masterstroke now

To create the illusion of transparency in your fashion sketch is quite easy. Merely get a lighter colour than your base and outline the bottom shape. The outline should not be exact. In fact, the more you vary – the better, especially in the bottom hemline.

Step 7: Now let's add the top layer

Use the same lighter colour for shading very similar to the darker on you did before. Start from the waist down. Then make some lines from the hemline up. Check how there is some blank space left between this new layer and the solid one.

Step 8: highlights time

To finish up to get a white gel pen or a white pencil and draw a few lines to strengthen the shapes. You don’t want to bring the hemline from end to end. Be picky in this step. Less is more.

And we are ready to put this illustration in our showreel. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial if "yes" please hit  like button and support me to put more content like this in future ,at the end here is a variation of the same illustration.
