DRAWING PATENT LEATHER + LIGHT FAUX FUR

In this fashion drawing tutorial, we are working with one of the sexiest and most provocative textures ever? – patent leather. We are going to render it in two different colors – red and black. The technique works for any colors though. All you need is just 2-3 tones of the same hue + blender if you work with markers. In addition to patent leather, I’ll show you how to draw a light faux fur coat?

Let’s do it✨

INTRO

drawing patent leather fur info
Patent leather
is a type of leather with a linseed oil–based lacquer coating. Nowadays patent leather often has a plastic coating. It is easily recognized by its glossy finish. As a result, patent leather is frequently confused with poromeric imitation leathers such as  Kuraray Co.’s Clarino and DuPont’s Corfam which are synthetic materials with a similar shiny look.

STEP 1 – SKETCH PREPARATION

In Step 2, we are going to watch a video tutorial, where I am showing how to render a patent leather and a faux fur coat on a croquis. We will be drawing a red top, a black skirt and a black pair of pumps – all made of patent leather.
You can prepare your own sketch or you can download free FSketcher template that I’ve created purposefully for this class. Just click on the image below.

STEP 2 – SKETCH RENDERING

Under the video, I included extra information and exercises on rendering, such as lighting, draping, etc. You can check them before or after watching the tut?? Enjoy 😉

 

STEP 3 – DESIGN PROJECT

You can’t imagine how happy I get when you tag me in your works made with FSketcher techniques in Instagram? You can share your illustration made using this lesson’s technique in a comment section below. I most probably will notice it faster since I am here all the time?

    Hiii. Is there any way we can get the templates of previous dresses that you’ve done (LACE & FLORAL PRINT, DOLCE&GABBANA Dress F’15 RTW, SATIN DRESS, HOUNDSTOOTH & FOX FUR,beyonce dress, rihanna dress etc.) I really really love your artwork and the templates really help. If you could please put them up soon. Thank you so much. I possible can’t express how happy a new post of yours helps me.
