i’ve spent the last ten years or so producing heavily stylized art where my subject is wearing some sort of historical costume… or is a robot. so, my “actual clothes” skills have atrophied big time. 

fashion mags are useless to draw from. the photos are so heavily photoshopped you’ll never see the folds, shadows, & body curves you need. 
however, there’s quite a vogue for street fashion books. i took this young man from “fresh fruits”. overall, i’m pretty happy with it. not to mention his jacket’s pretty keen. 
drawn with a non-photo blue pencil, detailed with 2hb.
