About This Class

Fashion Illustration is about storytelling: communicating the experience to be had in the clothing being showcased.

In this 45-minute class, PaperFashion's Katie Rodgers takes her fashion figure illustrations to the next level and puts them in a scene. She selects her favorite couture gown straight off the runway and brings it to life in a full composition, walking through such concepts as depth, space and color. You are challenged to tell your own story through fashion illustration and create a composition of your favorite gown.

This class is great for aspiring illustrators interested in improving their fashion illustration skills and pushing their figures to tell a story.
