    Many thanks for putting this together! Fun, clear and fascinating class - but the women drawn look nothing like real woman! So sad. No wonder women are so often disappointed when they put on the clothes.

    The ratios he gives however, are very helpful and it turns out you can adapted his technique to more closely resemble actual women (who aren't starving) and a variety of races. I really had fun working with the shapes he teaches to fill them out to represent the women who would be wearing my clothes.

    Thanks again for this great video!

    I took Yelen's class at the ASG Conference in LA (2011). He is a great teacher, he made it all so easy. I couldn't believe I drew fashion illustrations! I need to practice to keep up the skill!

    Riveting. It looked so easy watching. Then I tried it on my own. Not so easy. But I'll watch it again and try again. Thanks for this.

    That was amazing!

    The ease of creating something from nothing is truly a talent.
