Croquis Basics, choosing the photo, 1st rough sketch
I chose a photo which is a walking pose. I used the 9 heads formula. Often, the feet go in the 10th box. I elongated the fashion sketch to reflect that formula. I also made my croquis more slender than the model in the photo as this isn't a life drawing, it's a fashion sketch so it will be exagerated in many ways to be able to showcase the garments.
Notice how the shoulder line and underarm bust area are considered a block as those two lines move simaltaniously up or down from the axis of the adams apple. Next post will show all lines, s curve, torso block movement and hip block movement.
