Hi! First of all! You art is lovely! It's so bright and cartoony but still like really well done and the coloring is always so visually pleasing! Secondly, do you have any advice for drawing different fashion? I feel like I draw the same outfit over and over, yet if I look up on google I get the same 4 outfits in different colors. Thirdly have you ever watched Lolirock? It's not the greatest show ever, but it's got really cute style, they change the outfits a lot, and the characters are cute!
1. Thank you so much for the kind words <3. I get alot of compliments on my colours Idk know what i’m doing that makes my colours so widely loved?????
2. I’ve never been taught in fashion. But as someone who LOVES to design cloths (since i could start drawing.) I can give you my 4 main tips.
Like Marinette being inspired by pigeons. I usually don’t have clothing designs without an outfit theme or Idea. like my ML fashions being inspired by each Akuma. it makes it easier when designing cloths and helps with making different cloths for different characters. Example a character who’s cloths are inpired by fruit (bright colours, tropical patterns) will be different from a character who’s cloths are inspired by chocolate (darker colours, more art nuveau patterns)
Your already using google! getting research! thats great your great!… but if google isn’t doing the work. check other sites! Also sometimes, you need to know fashion to research fashion. Learn things like shirt styles, jacket types, collar types, skirt types, the many different dresses, waitlines. The more fashion you draw the more you learn. But it is easier to find exactly the dress/shirt/jacket you are looking for one you know how to narrow it down.
pieces of clothing do NOT need to have everything different about them for each outfit. you can change one to two little things and have widely different outfits. if you think they are all looking the same change two little things.
same goes for colour! You can change an entire outfit by just using a different colourscheme!
Hint: I only have maybe four different outfits i use for my Men/Boy characters, I just change their colour scheme each time ;)
there we go. Idk what else to suggest. i’m really bad at teaching -_-
and 3- I haven’t watched LoliRock, but i’m very aware of it’s adorable looking existence
