I hear things like this all the time:
“I just want to sketch flats that look like real garments instead of circles and squares.”
“I can sketch by hand really well, but always fight to create stylized flats in Illustrator.”
“I really want my flats to look more relaxed and not so technical!”
Well, guess what?! Adding some extra depth and realism to your fashion illustrations is really not as complicated as you may think.
But here’s the problem. No one’s ever showed you how to do it because either A) they don’t know how or B) they’re not willing to share. If I had to bet, I’d say it’s a combination of both.
You know the fashion industry’s known for being tight lipped, so why would anyone share their hard earned skills with you?
Well, I will. Because I don’t know about you, but keeping secrets when we’re all working towards the same goal seems petty.
Which is why I created this video. I’ll show you 5 simple Adobe Illustrator shortcuts that you can do in under 2 minutes each to make your designs more beautiful.
