Don't you hate when you're in the plane or car drawing when your colored pencil falls from your lap into the unknown? To keep those colored pencils organized and under control, I have created the Colored Pencil Jacket in Sketchbook Pro! With a Colored Pencil Jacket on, all of your colored pencils will remain neatly tucked away in their individual slots, easy to reach whenever you need a splash of color in your drawing! Its slick, waterproof material serves as a great art smock when painting or creating anything messy. If you're in the airplane and spill some soda on your favorite jacket, no problem! Just wipe away the mess with a napkin and continue drawing. This jacket has a hood with red trim, along with a zipper straight down the middle. Want to know how I designed it? Read on!

Step 1: Getting Started

For starters, I downloaded the Dream it, Draw it, Wear it Contest jacket template and uploaded it into Sketchbook Pro. I used the free trial, and was astonished at how cool the software was! After a few doodles, I was ready to start.

I selected the hard eraser tool and enabled the vertical axis of symmetry feature. Then, I erased the drawstring on one side, amazed to see that the symmetry feature erased the other drawstring as well. Next, I shaded the whole jacket with a brilliant blue using paint bucket.
It's nice knowing what brushes you used for the different effects. Really cool! I like your choice of colors!!
Thank you so much! :)
