Look Inside this book at http://madartistpublishing.com This book is designed as a resource book for fashion designers, fashion illustrators and students of fashion. There are 50 figure templates suitable for fashion design and designers can easily draw their own designs on the pose that will be best to show their design. Sketching over 9 head proportioned fashion figures makes it easier for designers to draw proportionally. With the help of the illustrations as references, it is possible to draw different silhouettes, paint with detail to light and shadow or show realistic fabric textures. There are 50 different themes in this book grouped in eight chapters. Instead of random illustrations, the themed illustrations make this book unique and fun. These themes will also help designers and illustrators.
