This week, we are holding a Fashion Drawing Challenge, in which users are being asked to draw various fashions and styles that inspire them, using PicsArt Drawing Tools. Approaching a challenge like this can be tough, so we have prepared a step-by-step tutorial that breaks down the fashion drawing process. There are a lot of directions you can go with this one, sticking with just the clothes, going for a mannequin, or deciding on a model, but whatever you do, you have to exhibit your fashion in style. This drawing tutorial will give you an idea of how to organize your workspace, use PicsArt Drawing Tools, and it might even give you ideas and inspiration along the way!
Step 1: Open the PicsArt Drawing Tool
Select “Draw” from the main screen and then select “Draw blank” to start a new drawing from scratch. You have the option of choosing the precise width, height, and orientation of your drawing before entering your work space.
Step 2: Draw Your Outline
Draw a rough outline that approximates what you want your final drawing to look like. Then reduce the opacity, and in a higher layer, trace the first outline with a smooth final outline of your mannequin or model, but leave the clothes for later.
Step 3: Add Colors and Shading
Color and shade your drawing in layers. Use one layer for background, one for base colors, and a couple layers to get your shading just right. Use spray brushes or brushes with lower opacity to add shading without overpowering lower layers. Merge color layers when done.
Step 4: Add Outline of Clothes
In a new layer, outline the clothes on your mannequin. Hide layers with colors to work with less distractions. Reduce opacity of first outline and trace more precise version in higher layer, like before, to finish clothes.
Step 5: Color & Shade Clothes
Color your clothes in layers like before. Keep base colors, shading, and details separate when you are working, then merge the layers at the end when everything looks the way you want it.
Step 6: Finish Background
In your background layer, create an ambience by using colorful streaking brushes. Have fun with the colors of the light and shade in your background, this is a great ooportunity to introduce complimentary or contrasting colors to add atmosphere.
