Instructables
I work between two worlds:

One is the awesome crazy fun place known as Instructables.
The other is the super fancy officey Autodesk.

They are both super cool, but definitely different climates. Managing a wardrobe between the two worlds is tricky.

I'm wanting to skateboard to work and still look fly at both places. So here's my idea of a convertible skirt to bridge the divide!

Step 1: Edit them contest flats

I'm lazy! I want instant gratification! I'm going to take the provided contest flats and edit them. You can download them here!

I'm going to use the symmetry tool to make this fast. I only have to draw one side when I use symmetry!
Click on the Y button, or, press this button on the toolbar:


First, I'll make a new layer on top of the contest flats. Click the + button on the layer editor.


On this new layer I'll put down a bunch of white using the paintbrush tool at full opacity. I'm gonna cover up the pants part of the pants, but keep the top!

Then I'll make a second layer, and sketch out my skirt idea. I'll connect my sketch with the lineart on top, using a pencil brush in black. I'm not too worried about making it look nice. I'm just trying to figure out my idea first!
