Dynamics of pose

Below is a schematic of the dynamic movement of the pose.  I made a few erasures and those areas are darker (sadly).   Typically a fashion sketching class allows you to view a model from afar standing in this pose.  Short of having that option, I stand in front of a mirror in the pose to understand how the body moves.  As an artist/maker I also need that experience to connect myself to the work.  

Notice that the croquis is more of a life drawing that a true fashion croquis.  That is to say she has too much volume on her frame.  Understand that the job of a fashion croquis is to showcase the garments, so I will have to "slim" her quite a bit.  The next post will show that step.
