This new edition of FIGURE DRAWING FOR FASHION DESIGN - fully revised, updated and expanded - offers a concise, topic by topic guide to acquiring and perfecting the skills of visualising ideas and concepts in costume and fashion design, concentrating on the female form. Here, realism and anatomical precision are the chief values, whereas for costume and fashion, stylisation and exaggeration are ways of adding individuality and verve to a plate, and of focusing attention on specific elements. The coverage provided means that this book is ideal both for those who want to apply themselves professionally to fashion design, and for all enthusiasts of drawing the human body.
This book is a practical manual intended specifically for anyone interested in delving into the technique of granting colour to fashion figurine illustrations to give them more life and expressiveness. In a clear and educational way, Tiziana Paci, author of the well-known book Figure Drawing for Fashion Design, explains in detail the different themes examined in the work through images and examples along with concise and to-the-point texts ideal for neophytes as well as people who have been working in this field for years. The book is divided into the following chapters: poses, colour and colour combinations, watercolour technique, tools such as professional markers, coloured pencil and water-soluble graphite, digital techniques and mixed techniques. Together, these suggestions allow both beginner and professional illustrators to depict figurines in vivid poses with incredible effects including the imitation of any type of material: leather, jewellery, bright fabrics and transparencies, and many more, following very different styles.
