This video shows you the art supplies that I use to draw fashion sketches:

SKETCHING:
HB and 2B grey pencils
(I forgot to mention the erasers: a regular one, one that has a thin tip and a kneaded eraser which doesn’t leave residues on the sheet of paper)
Graphite for quick sketching
Charcoal pencil for the shadowing and to get really black backgrounds
Ink pens (PIGMA 005, 05 and 1 // FABER-CASTELL Small, Medium & Bold)
Fixative (either from the art supplies store or a simple hairspray)

COLORING:
Markers: Chartpak AD / Copic / Prismacolor (several colors + darker shades of those colors, warm and cold greys, several black tones, several skin tones and a blender)
Color pencils: a regular box of colors will do the job (but you need white, black, grey and a skin tone)

PAPER:
Sketchbook in a format that fits your pre-made croquis, slightly see-through
Marker paper (bleedproof) in a larger format.

  1. So much different and easier than when I was a fashion illustrator in the 1960s and 70s..we didn't have all the markers back then. We had to use brushes and acrylic paint but we also had what was called zip-a-tone for different textures and other techniques. I have some of your markers today but back then the biggest pen we used was called a Rapideograph pen which you would have to change the points to get different lines…thanks for sharing again!

  2. Being completely non creative person, I watch what you do, Justine, in awe and admiration. You make it look so easy but I know it's not. Your videos help me expand my (non) creative vision and see how creativity could be used. Very interesting. Thank you for your great content, expertise and the lovely presentation.

  3. I went to art school in Philadelphia in the late 70's for illustration. I also used a rapidograph pen and hated them cause they would always clog up. You have inspired me to try some new markers and get drawing. Thanks Justine!
