Shortly after posting the "Importance of Effective Costume Rendering," I met Jess Goldstein and became absolutely smitten with his costume renderings.
They are small and simply done but convey all the ideas and silhouettes needed to produce the costume. He usually renders these designs prior to swatching and therefore colors and textures are not an exact match to the fabric. The reason his illustrations work is that he is able to specify textured, patterned, and trimmed parts of a costume fabric swatches accompany each illustration place and are organized in such a way to communicate his intent. I'll finish off this short addendum with some Ever After illustrations.
