'Figure Templates for Fashion Illustration' is a useful tool, not only for fashion students but also students without an art background on multi-disciplinary courses, as well as those who simply want to improve their basic drawing skills. If you are full of ideas for fashion design but not confident when it comes to drawing figures it can be difficult to present your concepts on paper. This book provides the answer with templates of figures in movement, figures from all angles, full and three-quarter length poses, back views and front-on poses. The figures can be used as they are or as a guide to develop your own poses. Information on anatomy, figure proportions, fashion-figure proportions and suitable art material is also included.
