About This Class

Drawing fashion is now easier than ever! This 53-minute class with renowned fashion illustrator Danielle Meder will open up a whole new world of drawing the human form and give new meaning to "illustration style."

Through step-by-step videos, Danielle walks through the fundamentals:

  • Sketching your figure draft 
  • Checking your proportions 
  • Mastering the gesture line 
  • Fleshing out your figure draft 
  • Designing and coloring your outfit 

By the end, you’ll be able to apply these concepts to your own work, infusing emotion into your illustrations and discovering confidence in your own style.

Throughout the class, Danielle uses Paper and Pencil by FiftyThree, the iPad Pro, and the Apple Pencil, but you're welcome to use your tool of choice!

FiftyThree builds mobile creation tools that help users to sketch, write, draw, outline, and color on the iPad.
