For those who don't know, Sandford Berol area global company, making pencils all over the world, just slightly different for each country, for some reason. they could not use Prismacolor for the UK as someone else had the bramnd name, so Prismacolor pencils are made under the name KarismaColor. I can vouch for them being the same pigments - I have tried both. they look very different, with Karisma having a natural wood barrel, shaved off at an angle at one end, BUT - THE NUMBERING IS THE SAME. 901 is Indigo blue in both sets, and the same colour. However, there are lots of other differences!

Several names are different (US First, UK name second)

904 Light Cerulean Blue - Light Blue
913 Spring Green - Green Bice
917 Sunburst yellow - Yellow Orange (not to be confused with 1002 Yellowed Orange)
919 Non photo blue - Sky Blue
921 Light vermillion - Vermillion
922 Poppy red - Scarlet Red
927 Pale Peach - Light Peach
928 Blush pink - Blush
931 Dark Purple - Purple
933 Blue Violet - Violet blue
941 Light Umber - Raw Umber
944 Terra Cotta - Terracotta
947 Dark Umber - Burnt umber
949 Metallic silver - Silver
950 Metallic Gold - Gold
956 Lilac - Violet
995 Mulberry - Bright Purple
996 Black grape - Grape

Then the selection we can get is very different. In the 108 - NOT 120 - pencils available in the UK, the following are not in the boxed 108 set.

915 Lemon Yellow
920 Light Green
925 Crimson Lake
936 Slate Grey
940 Sand
988 Marine Green
997 Beige
1004 Yellow Chartreuse
1035 - 1039 - None of the Neons
1040 Electric Blue
1041 Steel
1078 Black Cherry
1079 Blue Violet Lake

Uhm, i've done loads of research, and none are free. I know of www.fashion-templates.com, & metrofashion.com...
First site has the nicest looking ones though... They have one male one on the last page of the templates page...
Metrofashion is just cool for images and stuff...

Dunno - i found that "fashion figure templates" and "fashion pose templates" gave me the best results. Croqui or croquis gave a diagrammatical human templates. Fashion Era has some OLD fashion templates, but they're practically unuseable... You just have to pay though, the best ones cost money. The www.fashion-templates.com one is $9.95 and so is www.fashion era.com - That is cheap...

could you? that would be so awsome! see i'm looking for some cuz i have a fashion and art project on this so yea. the model my fashion teacher gave me, the guy looked like he was in his 40's and his arms were deformed.

but yea if you could do that, that would be awsome! (you or anyone; than i'd have different poses lol)

what i'm looking for is a male model silluette who's in his late teens early 20's. and is average built.
(no clothing on. the project is to draw clothing on the models)
see i just have a hard time finding a good one. cuz i want mine to look relistic (spelling)

if anyone could do that, i'd be so happy. and also, they would get credit for the model. (yea i suck at drawing ppl lol)

do you mean a croquis like here?
http://fitar215.tripod.com/
it doesn't look quite as young as a guy in his twenties but the body shape is fairly appealing enough, like a model

i also found this at fidm.edu, a guy that's already posed.
http://www.fidm.edu/Academic/Admissi...ges/fdcro2.gif


i'd be curious to see what JR1 comes up with anyway

It's funny everyone keeps mentioning Prisma pencil crayons. I had my last exam on friday and one of my teachers had them out. I asked her if I could take one of each colour and she let me take as many as I wanted as she was going to throw them away.. I took them all.


Now I am excited haha.

How in god's name do you get your illustration to look like this:

Yahoo.com


Mine always look sloppy.. I mean, am I doing something wrong. Is this done on the computer? How do you do it!!

Can you tell I'm a beginner?

Fashion Sketchbook by Bina Abling is a great book! But it's pretty expensive, you can get it for 60 on Amazon. And they are usually only for reference at libraries so you can't take them out!
