Learn How to Live Sketch Fashion on the iPad
Have you ever wanted to learn how to do live runway sketching? It’s fast and fun and it seems like magic. However, I truly believe anyone can do it. I’ve taught artists of all ages and levels my technique and watched people pick it up so fast, they surprise themselves! Yes, you can do it too!
So I’m absolutely delighted to announce a new online class I produced with Brit + Co that shows you how to sketch fashion live on the iPad using Paper by FiftyThree. I’ve made it super easy and fun – I provide templates, share all my secret tricks, and give you tons of encouragement! Plus you can use the code DANIELLE30 at checkout to get 30% off!
You’ll get to see how a live fashion sketch breaks down into three quick steps, and then I take you through variations on the steps. By the end of the class you’ll have 3-5 completed fashion sketches of your own. It finishes up with a demo of how I draw fashion from a live model, the lovely Viktoriya. I’ll guide you through the process of letting go and letting loose, entering a flow state so you can experience the spontaneous feeling of joy that is creating art in the moment.
Creating this class was absolutely delightful. The crew at Brit + Co did an incredible job producing it, and I’m so grateful for all their hard work. They flew me out to San Francisco, a city I’ve always wanted to visit, and made such a sweet pretty pink set for me! They also put together a lovely profile where I got to share my philosophy, reflect on my origins and my career so far, and announce what I’m doing now.
It is meaningful to me to return to my fashion illustrator persona. A year and a half ago, I got burnt out on the fashion industry. I wasn’t sure why I was doing it anymore. I had to take some time off from promoting myself as a fashion illustrator and explore other things. Performing as the fashion illustrator again is refreshing. Now I have a clear understanding of my purpose and that shines through in my delivery.
It’s a pleasure and a privilege to condense a decade of experience into instructions that any aspiring fashion artist can use immediately. Please enjoy the class, and remember to enter DANIELLE30 at checkout!
