Just Ordered

I have been wanting to improve my fashion illustrating ability for a long time. I keep a sketchbook full of my design ideas, but the illustrations are so amateurish. I heard from others that these two books were particularly helpful, providing fashion illustration tutorials. I just ordered them from Amazon today and should receive them by week's end. I'll post a review here after I've had a chance to peruse them.





And just so you can imagine the dire necessity...here is a sketch for a child's design from my notebook.

Well I think your illustration looks great, you are really creative!

Charity, you had me all prepared for something like my five year old granddaughter might do...yours is good. Don't be so hard on yourself.

I wish I had a buck for every hour I spent as a pre-teen and teen illustrating current fashion trends and coming up with my own designs. I would be a millionaire.

Your illustrations do look good! I took a class on this subject at the expo I just went to... I still can't do it well. make sure to post what you think about the books!
