Fashion sketches make-up for most of the time and space on the closet of a fashion designer. They also take up a lot of effort as it’s not an easy task to draw such clean sketches. Traditional drawing is most certainly harder than digital and it takes a lot of time to draw then. In spite of the difficulties one should always learn the traditional style of designing before attempting the digital printing style since it lays the foundation for good screen designs.

How to draw an action figure: A Ninja

To draw an action figure first and foremost draw the outlines with a HB pencil. Just draw the frames and action postures to create the structure. For torso use a box. Now over it add the facial outlines and start giving shape to the outline. Thicken the sword and then stretch the arms and hands to create the illusion of a loose garment. Finally as the ninja starts taking shape, draw the hand pan on his sword and then detail the eyes by adding some shade to the eye, eyebrows and the lips. Now to give finishing to your sketch, add the blade of the sword and draw eyes on the mask of the ninja. Then shade the nose at one corner and add wrinkles to his garments to give finishing to the ninja.
