Please note: This class focuses on how to use the Sketchbook app, and not how to draw the clothes themselves. For beginner fashion drawing basics, I recommend completing "Paper Dolls for Grownups: Beginner Fashion Drawing" before taking this class.

Digital Paper Dolls: Learn Digital Drawing Basics

Learn to draw digitally on your tablet using Sketchbook, a free app for iPad or Android!

If you’ve been wanting to learn how to draw digitally on your MyBodyModel croquis, this class is for you! Learn beginner-friendly, step-by-step digital drawing tips and sketch along on your tablet, using the Sketchbook app (formerly named "Autodesk Sketchbook"). This app is available for both iOs (Apple) and Android devices, and it's free!

In this class, you'll learn how to...

  • Personalize your MyBodyModel croquis by adding your skin tone and hairstyle
  • Digitally draw and color garments on your body outline
  • Use “layers” to mix and match outfits, paper doll style (without having to re-draw your garment)
  • Preview different FABRICS for your designs using a photo of your fabric! 

Includes on-demand access to more than 1 hour of video instruction, split into 14 mini lessons. Go at your own pace, and re-watch each step as many times as you'd like. 

I'll be using an iPad pro and Apple Pencil, but you can use any tablet and stylus compatible with your device. The  Sketchbook app for Android interface is slightly different (for example, tool menus and appearance), but it is comparable.

What People Are Saying About This Class:

  • "I loved the class. I have been watching digital drawings popping up and was envious of that ability. I am so glad to have found out that it wasn't really as hard as I imagined it would be. I have been using my body model for a long time. The power to do it digitally and scale the fabric is awesome."- Beth
  • "Loved this course. Such a revelation on how to use the Autodesk Sketchbook App better! Being a sewer I loved the tip on how to import and use your fabric swatches." - Stephanie
  • "This was an incredibly helpful and informative class. Erica answered everything I wanted to know and showed me things I didn't even know I wanted to know!" - Pamela

Prerequisites: A basic comfort level with drawing garments, or completion of our beginner fashion drawing class, "Paper Dolls for Grownups, Level 1."
