photoshop and illustrator for fashion

every now and then i receive an email with cads* from someone who used my video training. i always appreciate it especially when i have never had the chance to meet the individual in person. these sketches came with this nice little note:
  • “Hi Ludmila, Attached are some CADs* I sketched utilizing Photoshop and Illustrator. I sketch my initial bodies in Illustrator and then I fill the print in Photoshop. The print was taken from a scarf I bought which had a nice border. I have been sketching pretty much daily lately and with your help and the help of good friends I have come a long way. I just wanted to say thanks! Later today I will email you another few CADs* which are coming out nicely and they have more depth than these. Talk to you soon, Kent Daniel “
well, i asked kent for permission to post his sketches and he said yes. so thank you kent for letting me share them here:
