New sketches will be added to this page as they are finished.

One of the things I like to do before I buy fabric and commit to colors is play with combinations. The easiest way for me to do this is by drawing – hey, I’m a scribe first!

For the ETWGP, I realized I’d be doing a lot of this drawing, so I drew a template figure on a sheet of 3.5×5 sketch paper (yeah, one of those little flip-pads) and then put it behind a clean sheet in order to trace the form. This way, all my drawings will have the same figure underneath them (unless the figure’s pose needs to be altered to best show the garments).

After doing three (yes three) Tang Dynasty outfits, I decided to make my line art available to others as PDFs. Just lick on the images below to get to them.

Feel free to use and share Рjust please link back.  Thanks!
