Step 1: Cutomize the Brush

Customize your brush to a line with a size of 1 px and opacity of 100%.

Step 2: Draw the Outline

Draw a rough outline of your fashion sketch. Reduce the opacity and trace a more precise outline in a higher layer

Step 3: Select a Clipart

Reduce the opacity again and add a blank layer. Select the Clipart icon, and import the blank figures from the Fashion M1 clipart package over your rough figure outlines.

Step 4: Add the Background

Add another layer just for your background and, using the faded image of your rough outline as a guide, draw a refined outline of your background.

Step 5: Basic Color

Add a layer at the bottom and fill it with a background color. Add layers in the back and foreground to color in and paint on different elements of your drawing. Things close to the front should be higher layers.

Step 6: Color the Figures

Color in your figures with skin color, then use Fashion M1 or Fashion M2 clipart to dress them.

Step 7: Advanced Color and Shade

In new layers, add color details like patterns in your backdrop. To shade, use a black brush in higher layers, then reduce that layer’s opacity. For lighting, do the same thing with bright brushes, like whites and yellows.

Step 8: Add Effects

Confirm your drawing by pressing the checkmark to enter the editor, which has a lot of options that are perfect for a fashion shoot. Use lens flares for light masks, and effects to perfect the atmosphere of your drawing. Hide layers for a more minimalistic sketch.
