Yep... You might be able to find one online...

I took a fashion drawing class... There's a certain formula to it all.. like the body should be the lenght of 8 heads.... Something like that.

I might have a few lying around that I can scan in.

i suppose its a matter of opinion you shouldnt really have to ask how to do it, you should experiment for yourself and se what techniques suit you. i do recommend mixed media

well typically a fashion sketch needs to feature an enlongated figure. the average person is 8 heads long where the fashion figure is 10. that's the first step. after that it's all about preference slash personal "style" more ways of working and such.

just start. don't worry about perfect. you'll get where you need to be.

best thing to do is take some preparatory (?) art class lessons which will help you draw quick and from live model..
those basic oldfashioned 'how to draw a figure' 'popular education' books are also a very good idea..
searching the web could also bear fruits

most of all one needs hours of practice to 'free' one's style

I have an aquaintance who teaches the Fashion Illustration course at FIDM in Los Angeles. I'm not sure if you can take this course independent of other studies or if you have to be enrolled as a full time student. Here's the link;

on sketching using computers: You'd be well off with a pressure-sensitive graphics tablet and software like (adobe) photoshop or freehand or maybe Paint Pro. Non-pressure-sensitive ones are just pen-mouses (mice?!), pressure-sensitive ones mimic thin/thick lines i.e. when you press down hard with a pencil and such. Can be a bit pricey though, at least for me it is.

Whoops, I meant "Painter" not "Paint"
(Don't kill me for being dumb! I just can't seem to find the edit button on this thing. I found it before though... 0_o)
