Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This text, by renowned fashion artist Steven Stipelman, brings self-confidence and skill to the aspiring artist through easy step-by-step approaches to drawing the basic fashion figure, an identification of the elements of a garment, and discussion of the various techniques that can be used to render fashion illustration. The book also benefits the more advanced reader by its exploration of such complex concepts as manipulating the figure, draping, drawing voluminous garments, and creating flats. This is an excellent reference work for designers, illustrators, and merchandisers. Stipelman's own beautiful drawings acquaint the reader with historical and contemporary designer garments. Throughout the text, the author emphasizes the importance of accuracy, proportion, and detail, while encouraging a sense of fantasy and passion, as well as common-sense reality. Stipelman has instructed hundreds of students and professionals in the field of fashion illustration.
