How to Illustrate Movement in Fashion Drawing
Draw some crazy hip action.
How far can a fashion artist kick out a hip in a fashion drawing? Pretty far if you’re looking for attitude! Not only does a drawing of a fashion figure look better with a hip thrust to the side (this is true for both guys and girls), but the waist tilts and shoulders angle as well, making for fierce attitude.
Draw a torso with angled shoulders and oppositely angled hips. Make sure the hips are off to the side, not directly under the shoulders.
Add the legs. Keep the higher-hip leg straight. The lower-hip leg meets with the other leg at the knee but curves away from there.
Make the feet turn in and face each other for an awkward but edgy stance. Keep one arm bent and the other lying on the body along the upward hip.
Finish by filling out the lines with body shapes and clothing that follows the angles of the body.
