Hi everyone!

Welcome to my first Skillshare class!

In this class you will learn the basics of fashion illustration, I’ll show you step by step how to draw a fashion figure, create dynamic and interesting poses and we’ll be learning how to use watercolors along the way. 

  • I’ll show you step by step process of creating a fashion illustration
  • We'll do some easy and fun exercises that will help you to create interesting poses
  • Then we’ll create a final fashion illustration on a watercolor paper

 You will be able to download 9 head croquis (fashion figure) that you can use as a template for your illustration and a reference with face proportions, but I encourage you to create your own because it's a very good practice.

Hi everyone, welcome to my creative playground:)

I'm a self-taught fashion illustrator, dreamer and explorer.

I started my blog in March, 2012 to share my passion for art and fashion. Over the years this space evolved and became a creative outlet to share things I love, my inspiration and everything creative.

Creating art for individual clients and big brands is a dream come true because every day I can play with my favorite paints and call it a job!
