…in your next pinup painting or photoshoot?
I’m constantly wondering what kind on story is there to tell with my artwork. One of the main aspects is clothing. It’s even more important when there isn’t any backgound or additional characters. The clothing can be defining factor of the character itself. Clothing can tell something about values, profession, era, history or situation of the character.
In my process I try to make sketches like these before starting the drawing or painting. These could be helpful for a photoshoot too!
Sometimes there’s no time to think all the possibilities or in the case of photoshoot to acquire the clothes and props or accesories and try them out just to find they don’t work. Then these sketches are atleast a timesaver. Don’t understand me wrong. A big part of creative process is to find out what doesn’t work and try another one. There is just faster ways to narrow down the search.
Some of these are very different type of clothing. The process is still the same. I have drawn a pose and to that pose I draw the clothes and features of the character. The basic pose is included in the image if you want to try it yourself. You may use this image for your studies.
I hope this is somewhat helpful. Leave some comments.
I would love to hear about your creative processes.
