2 Gift Fashion Sketches

Posted Mar 2022

My client sent me more reference photos from her Wedding. So I could design a Gift FASHION SKETCH for them After the Wedding ~ to capture the feel of the evening.

So many choices to make. So many moments. So many interpretations.

I drew the first happy Wedding Picture directly on the paper, and mailed it to my client through the Post Office. That should have been finished with the project. But......

Looking at it until I got around to packaging it up, I wondered..... why am I always accentuating the bottom-flair of her Wedding dress..... I wonder what the Exaggerated FASHION SKETCH would look like if I exaggerated how that bottom part of her dress restricts movement ~ by gathering it right down at her feet.... I know what it's like to wear a straight skirt.....

So I drew a 2nd Gift FASHION SKETCH. This time on the IPad. If you click on the mp4 link below, you can see the process.

Lol. If you CLICK ON THE mp4 LINK BELOW, you can see what directs an Artist. You will see 2 more completely different ideas quickly pass by in the video. If I didn't have so many other jobs to turn my attention to, I would be drawing even 2 More of these Gift FASHION SKETCHES.

Can you tell what the Other 2 ideas are ~ the 2 ideas that I didn't (yet?) draw? I'll post the answers in a few days from now.

Quick Ad

Experienced. Fun. Great Artwork. Alison's worked at famous venues, including Carnegie Hall and Sardi's. As well as Restaurants and and Homes.

Alison's esketches are drawn on IPad and printed on 4x6 paper so Guests can take the Caricatures home with them.

If desired, Guests can watch their friends being drawn. Always fascinating to be surprised by the fantastic Artwork. And they not only see what is drawn, but they can also see how it's done ~ they can see what the Artist is doing. For Traditional Media, they can see the Artist's approach and what tools she chooses. For e-Sketches, they can see how the Artist handles Layers, Selections, Brushes, Tools, etc. Yes fascinating. Fantastic.

Finding The Art

Posted Mar 2022

I frequently draw Large Groups ~ even more than 7 people ~ when I'm drawing Caricatures, but I was taken by surprise when I was asked to draw a FASHION SKETCH of 6 people at a Wedding. And then, shortly after I started, I agreed to let a 7th person in. That makes me feel confused. Because I've already designed an approach for 6 people, but then... quick change.... takes me off solid ground.... onto shifting sands....

Okay. Art is in the moment. I agreed, Guests were Happy, I could not get bored, and I did whatever I did. The Fashion Sketch of 7 people flowed. (In looking back on the experience, I should have asked to see Everyone's Fashion. Some people's bodies were hidden behind others ~ just their heads popping out.) I just kept that marker moving. Good experience ~ I kinda liked Most of the decisions that I made.

The Guests Enjoyed. But it felt wrong to me. Like I was working too hard. My job includes things like sending quotes, keeping lists, preparing supplies, showing up on time..... but when it comes to the Art, it shouldn't really be Work. The Artist should be Doing it. An Artist, like a Dancer or an Actor, needs to be In The Zone to Really do it.

So when I came home, I looked into the situation for myself. To be better prepared to handle Large Group Fashion Sketches in the future. And I finally came up with a great one!

First, I tried it on my IPad. Just because I felt like using my IPad. Time-off, you know. And I figured that I would be able to make changes ~ each time I came across a moment that I wasn't enjoying. It came out looking very good ~ but I felt like it lost the immediacy of what I drew At the Event.

Still feeling interested in my situation, I picked up an old marker and a blue scrap paper ~ without even having the Reference Photo nearby. I just wanted to see if I would like the experience better if I didn't fuss with poses ~ how about a simple direct, draw each person just standing there... No. Still, too 'headsy' for me. Too many heads stuck together with just dully describing each fashion.....

Then I finally did it! I just went with the flow. No predraw. I just started with what was important, and I took it from there. Only what was needed. So much fun! I'm looking forward to doing this again. I am looking forward to my next Fashion Sketch Event!

Posted Feb 2022

Just relaxing. I watched a pleasant movie called 'Milton's Secret'.

Pen moving. I drew the main character. Interesting face
