  • Fashion Illustration What is a Croquis? A croquis is a template or a mannequin figure that is used to design clothing without having to take the time to redraw the figure each time. Once you have created a croquis, it becomes your master template that is used for each of your design sketches. Your original croquis should not be drawn on.

  • Creating Your Own Croquis Today, as an introduction to Fashion Illustration, you are going to create your own croquis. Follow the instructions carefully in order to complete your work properly! This may not be an easy task (at first)! Dont be afraid to try a few times until you get it right.

  • Creating a Croquis: Instructions 1.Remove the photograph from the magazine and place a piece of plain white paper on top of the image. 2.Lightly draw in the basic skeletal shape to capture the pose and see which way the body tilts. 3.You must sketch in the following lines: head, shoulders, waist, hips, spine 4. Carefully trace over the body (not the clothing). If the clothing extends beyond the body, you will have to figure out where the body is! 5. Be sure to take your time and do it properly until you are happy with your work!
  • Slide 14
  • Creating a Croquis: Instructions 1.When you are finished tracing, remove the tracing paper from the image (do not throw the photo away). 2.Now, you are going to make a good copy of your croquis to use as your master template. 3.Use your first croquis drawing and make a good copy onto a clean piece of white paper (start with pencil and finish with ink / marker). 4.Staple your first croquis sketch to the magazine image you used.
