Practising lingerie sketches

I haven’t had much time to sketch these past two weeks, but the other day I sat down and wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone a bit, so instead of my black and white pen drawings I decided to add colour. With all things new when you start my hands didn’t always correspond to what I wanted in my head. But I was quite pleased with the first attempts. I will have to invest in more colours and not just design from my head but with intended fabrics, but I’m hoping I get more time to perfect my style using pens.

The pens i’ve used for this drawing are: Staedtler pigment fineliner usually using the 0.3mm and Winsor & Newton Promarker.

If you are wanting to practise or start lingerie sketches, an e-book is available “How to sketch a bra and brief” which contains 12 shapes and examples of sketching.
