When showing movement,
the back leg is the one which

Poses 35
Tailored suit. A classic suit
confers a slightly geometric
and solid look to the shoulders
and chest as though it were a
box or suit of armor. The tie
follows the curved line of
the chest.

36 Essential Fashion Illustration: Men
Tight fitting suit. The shoulders
and chest are still square
shaped and the trousers make
short creases at the seams,
created by quick strokes. The
right forearm, foreshortened,
is close to the biceps area with
an S-shaped crease.
