Fashion Illustration: fashion templates for drawing faces and hair styles.

Bad news: drawing faces in fashion illustration is complicated.
Good news: is there is no mandatory requirement to add a face to fashion illustration at all.
There are many fashion illustration styles which avoid drawing faces and try to keep illustration simple with a minimum amount of distraction. Since face is not directly related to a fashion garment and since the garment is the main focus of fashion illustration, drawing of a face in fashion illustration is optional. However, face and hair style added to fashion drawing could be excellent finishing touches, making fashion illustration more complete. Face and hair style added to fashion illustration could be helpful as they help to articulate overall sense of style of fashion project. It is like adding a face to a prospective customer, therefore, illustrating who is your target audience.
It is one thing if you choose not to draw face in fashion illustration but you have ability to do so. It is totally different if you cannot draw face or do not know how to add a face to your fashion drawing in the first place. One way how a face can be drawn in fashion illustration is using fashion templates for faces and hair styles. The last plate in the book of fashion templates by Irina V. Ivanova is a template with 10 different faces and hair styles to choose from when you draw your fashion illustration.
Here is a simple step-by-step guide on how to use fashion templates for faces and hair styles to add a face to a fashion drawing:
First, draw a croquis of a body to which you will add a face and hair style.

three quarter view fashion illustration

As we wrote before, three quarter view is one of the most important and resourceful views for fashion drawing. In this posting we want to introduce a three quarter croquis in mild movement .

Showing movement in three quarter view could be tricky and this is pre-made croquis could be very helpful. In the book of fashion templates by Irina V. Ivanova presented both , three quarter view static pose (still position with no movement) and three quarter pose in movement ( very mild , natural, calm movement not an extreme, dynamic movement).

Three quarter view in movement fashion template is a fusion of multiple poses ( all three quarter view) with mild moment of arms and legs. All these illustration above were created by Irina V. Ivanova with one single template. Because this template allows to choose variety of different leg and arm positions, it is easy to create various poses from the same template. Multiple positions fused into the croquis allow to make decision on the spot about which pose to depict. All process is very inventive and allow to find instantaneously the best drawing solution for a fashion project.
