View Full Version : Fashion Design ATC Swap - Due July 28th 2011

Fashion Design ATC Swap - Due July 28th 2011

Swap Due Date - July 28
Signup/withdraw date - just communicate
Number of Cards - 3 for 3 ONLY
Number of participants - 40

Medium: Hand Drawn/HP or Mixed Media
no prints or digitals permitted

The inspiration for this swap is Fashion Design Sketches! Think McCall's pattern covers, Project Runway, Designer's notebooks...

Design your very own fashion line, on an ATC. Anything goes as far as medium. Cut out different patterns in fabric or magazines and paste them onto a sketch of a model. Sketch it out all hand drawn...whatever suits your fancy.

May I suggest, though, that the background be rather plain as with any fashion sketch you see, the focal point is the outfit, with the background normally remaining white or a small splash or tint of color on the background.

Do a google search for "fashion sketch" and you'll see what I mean.
