How to Draw Spring Jackets
Draw a men’s lightweight jacket.
Sketch a male front pose with both arms bent. One hand will rest in the jacket’s center front pocket, and the other will be hidden behind the back.
Draw the center front zipper and the collar. Start the zipper a few inches below the chin. For the collar, draw a V at the top of the zipper. Keep one side of the collar straight up and wrap a curved line around the back of the neck. Add a tiny circle beneath this collar for the drawstring hole. Draw a sideways triangle on the other side to show that that side of the collar is open.
Add curved lines at the shoulder and neck to show the hood in the back. Draw side seams in a boxy shape down the sides of the torso to the hips. Add boxy sleeves with little creases at the bend in the arm.
Finish with details such as a center front pocket, two zipper pockets on the chest, a drawstring near the neck, and a seam across the chest. Don’t forget to add topstitching!
