Nancy Riegelman: Drawing Sessions | HAIR
Hair is a key styling element that must look as fashionable as the garments it accompanies or it will make the garments look dated. Hair is highly visible—as much on a drawing as on the head, and must be drawn correctly so the drawing does not suffer.
Nancy Riegelman: Fashion Drawing Sessions | SHADING
Drawing is the most powerful tool of fashion design. The more realistic we make our drawings the easier it is to understand our designs. Objects take their three-dimensional appearance from the patterns of shadow and light that appear on their surfaces so to make objects appear realistic in drawings we imitate those patterns—we employ shading.
