thank you clay.

so do you illustrate from scratch on the illustrator ?
do you insert sketches and then work them on the program?
i love the result and i'd love to hear more from your experience
(industrial sketches are very usefull to me right now )

Hi Lena!

Good to catch you online! I have a croqui of different poses just as I do with my freehand , but I sketch directly over in ILlustrator. This is hard cause the tool you use is basically a straight lien that get get anchored to 2 points,
then depending on which way you drag your mouse or pen it bends the line and you must control it. It took me a month to learn ind understand it.

Like I said when I worke at my last I did all my sample packages in Illustrator and sent them via e-mail to the factories. I am really happy I learned it.

Lena,

The "industrial sketches " as you call them are actually easier than the the full figure on ILlustrator. Once you have a few shirts, or pants or dresses, it is very easy to copy and manipulate into new styling. also you can keep your line and proportions the same. No need to start from scratch on everyone. That saves alot of time.
And like everything else it gets easier and you get faster.

i see, thank you clay, for the moment i do everything by hand but its a good idea trying Illustrator when i manage to get some free time (summer vacations hmmm)

btw, are those called 'technical' sketches?
not sure about the correct term
thats all people care about when manufacturing samples

there is also a plug-in program to illistrator called Snap Fashion which gives you technical sketches of trendy garments and embellishments. It makes producing my technicals so much easier.

I did not knw about the Sanpa Fashion plug in . Will check it out.

Yeah lena we call them technical or flat sketches. Like I said they are easy in illustrator cause you build from each one instead of starting from scratch. I would love to see your hand sketches.

Lena -- hello.

You said fashion illustrators are paid well? I'd like to know more about this!

By the way, I still plan to ask you some questions about textile design, but havent gotten to it yet.
