Rendering Tips for the Costume Designer: Simple Steps for Better Drawing and Painting is a guide for students and costume designers who want to improve their drawing, painting, and rendering skills.

The book is divided into three sections - Drawing Tips, Painting Tips, and Linework Tips - and includes detailed step-by-step instructions for chapters such as "How to Draw Faces and Hair," "How to Draw Hands," and "How to Draw Feet and Shoes". This format allows readers to pick and choose which techniques to study, enabling them to focus on the areas that give them the most difficulty. Filled with practical information and over 100 illustrations, this reference guide can be used in conjunction with any figure drawing method or painting media. Within these pages, readers will find the answers to the most common rendering questions: Where do the shadows go? How do I make my figures look less stiff? How do I draw patterned fabric?

Rendering Tips for the Costume Designer is an invaluable resource for students in Costume Rendering and Costume Design courses, along with professional costume designers looking to improve their rendering skills.
