How to Draw Spring Jackets
3 of 3
Draw a raincoat.
Sketch a female side pose. Draw the sleeve. Using the arm hanging straight down as the center of the sleeve, draw a sleeve that starts out narrow at the armholes and bells out at the wrist. Add some stripes for a fun design, leaving a little white in the stripe to indicate the shine of the waterproof material. Sketch in a hat.
Follow the side profile of your model’s chest above the breast, drawing a line that falls down from the point of the chest to her stomach and comes a little forward into a bell shape at her knees. Draw the back line of her coat peeking out from behind her arm. Draw a line for the hem to connect the front and back.
Add a seam at the waistline and draw a line down her side for the side seam. Draw a couple of short lines at the model’s hip to show the side-seam pocket. Add boots and draw your model’s hair blowing in the wind.
Feel free to add a ruffle at the hem and a bold print throughout the coat. Don’t forget to include white areas for shine!
