Really interesting Fashion Illustration are made from scratch (without a template)and is an art in itself. To see who the "masters" are in this field, I suggest you study the best in the Industry.
Our pinterest board is loaded with some of the best current and vintage fashion illustrators around. Please take a look and see for yourself!
One of my favorite fashion illustrators is David Downton. With what seems like just a few brushes, the man creates an amazing illustration. He is somewhat reminiscent (but has entirely his own style) of my other favorite Illustrator the late and great René Gruau.
