How to draw fashion illustrations

April 18, 2018

'Hi there! Can you teach me how to draw fashion illustrations?' This is a question I get asked a lot on Instagram. I don't teach classes (yet), but do want to help of course. So I'm glad to say to all of you who have asked me a similar question: there is an online platform where experienced fashion illustrators and other artists can actually teach you and help you to improve your drawing skills! It's called Skillshare.


In this blog, I will share some of my favorite Skillshare classes, that will really help you to draw figures, faces and beautiful dresses.  I will share the links to the introductions of the classes below each one. Also, you can get 2 months of Skillshare for free. No obligations attached, you can also just explore it for two months and stop afterwards.

This is the link: https://skl.sh/annawijnands. You could also use coupon code  igamb412. If you want to sign up, remember to use the link in this blog and not the one after the intro video's of the classes, because the one in this post gets you 2 months for free instead of one ;)
