I really enjoyed doing this as a warm-up and a way to visualize more of how the fabric moves!

I used an art style in a comic I own called Snot Girl. I love the colours and art style, so doing this in that style was a big look at how I can change the style to fit different media. Character to clothing! - image 3 - student projectI'll have to work on silky and shiny fabric, as it looks blurry. Character to clothing! - image 4 - student project

I LOVE PATTERNS! I had so much fun and got some ideas for a new skirt design I plan to sew this weekend!Character to clothing! - image 5 - student projectI really enjoyed showing the movement of long elegant fabric, it makes so many nice shapes. Character to clothing! - image 6 - student project

With the designs, I ended up making a character I really liked as well in the process. I really enjoyed creating fancy dresses and costumes.  Character to clothing! - image 7 - student projectI tried out one of the prompts and got a design I didn't think I could come up with! But super fun to colour. I can see a wide range I can take my work after this class!
