How to Draw a Suit

Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below


You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below

Step 1 – Draw the Lapel Contour of the Suit

Start drawing with a quick lapel outline (collar) of the jacket. Position it towards the top of your drawing area so you have plenty of room for the rest of the jacket underneath.

Step 2 – Draw the sides of the main body

Going down from the lapel, add the shoulders and then the sides.

Draw each side curving inward towards the center of the jacket as shown in the example.

Step 3 – Draw the bottom of the main body

Down on the sides, add the bottom section, followed by the inside, where the jacket will be buttoned up. This will connect to the lapel on one of the sides.

Step 4 – Draw the inside of the lapel

Draw the inside of the lapel (the neck opening) for something that looks a bit like a vest.

Step 5 – Draw the sleeves

Out of each side of the “vest” add the sleeves. Make them slightly shorter than the main body.

Step 6 – Draw the back side

For this simple step, add a line towards the bottom of the jacket to show the back/inside of the jacket.

Step 7 – Draw Buttons & Finish Drawing Lines

Finally, add a pair of buttons with one just below the lapel and the other slightly lower. Simply make these circles into shapes.

Once you’ve finished drawing the buttons, you can trace your lines with a black pen or marker. If you don’t have one handy, you can simply darken them with a pencil. Just make sure you’re happy with your drawing before doing so.

Step 8 – Coloring the Suit

To color the suit, you can use any color that matches the outfit. In this case it will be blue with a hint of gray and the buttons will be gray with a hint of orange.

The inside of the jacket will also be slightly darker with a dark to light transition at the top (neck area).

An easy way to get these colors and gradations is to use colored pencils. For example, you can get a darker shade of blue by pressing a little harder on one and/or you can also glide over it with a regular pencil.
