How to Draw a Fashion Illustration with Illustrator

Raise your hand if you use Illustrator. 🙋🏾‍♀️


But how many of you use Adobe Illustrator to create fashion illustrations? It seems to make total sense, right? Illustrator . . . drawing illustrations. Totally!


And yet, how many of you actually do use it for that? . . . It’s the tools that hold us back, particularly the Pen Tool.


I get it! The Pen Tool isn’t exactly the first tool I’d try to use if I wanted to create a freehand, fluid, beautiful fashion illustration. But I don’t think this program has to be completely off the table and relegated to only technical sketches. There are things that can be done, and tools that can function well for this.


Check out my latest YouTube video to hear all about it. I’m still exploring to see if there are other tools that could make this process easy, but I think I’ve come up with some good options so far!
