Announcing #sketchmystyle 2019!

MyBodyModel fashion drawing challenge starts May 1

Are you ready to warm up your fashion drawing skills and explore your personal style, while also being part of a supportive and body-positive design community? I am so excited to announce #sketchmystyle, our first ever community challenge!

Our first monthly challenge kicks off on May 1 in celebration of Me-Made May and the theme, of course, is #DIYOOTD (DIY Outfit of the Day)!

This challenge is for you if you want to… ⁣
1) Practice your fashion drawing skills: ALL skill levels are welcome.
⁣2) Have fun exploring your personal style on your own body model croquis
3) Be part of our supportive and body-positive design community

I’ll be posting lots of helpful resources before and during each monthly challenge. We’ll even have some prizes* to make it even more fun!

Don’t know how to draw? No problem! This challenge is all about learning and exploring your artistic side, and most of all, having fun and supporting each other. If you’re just getting started, check out our Free Video Tutorials: Fashion Sketching for Absolute Beginners series on YouTube – New videos coming soon!

To participate on Instagram

Post your sketches drawn on a croquis of YOUR body (no unrealistically proportioned fashion croquis!) with tag #sketchmystyleand if your croquis is from MyBodyModel (Yay!) also tag #mybodymodel.  I’ll be posting roundups on Stories!⁣⁣

To participate on Facebook:  

I’ll be setting up a closed Facebook #sketchmystyle Sketchalong group to start on May 1.

Please join in this fun community challenge for May and invite your friends to join as well.  Both digital and paper sketches are welcome. You can post as often as you’d like – daily, weekly, or even just once or twice during the month.

So that this challenge can be open and accessible to everyone, using MyBodyModel croquis is not required, but they do need to be realistically proportioned croquis of your own body.

If you haven’t made your body model yet, it only takes a few minutes (for real)!! And, if you’ve made your body model but haven’t been sketching regularly, this could be a fun motivator to get more practice.

This is going to be so much fun – I can’t wait to play along and see everyone’s sketches!

*This challenge is not affiliated with Instagram or Facebook in any way, and is open to all when permitted by law. Void where prohibited.⁣
