So you will need:
- A collection of images by your 2 illustrators - enough to get a really good feel for their style, technique and media.
- A range of photographs from the figure - try to get some good dynamic poses that have the feel of Fashion illustration/photography. If you are unsure what you are aiming for then flick through a few copies of Vogue and look at the fashion shoots and advertising images.
- The appropriate media to respond to your illustrators, identify what they use and do likewise. If their work is produced digitally then don't try replicating it by hand.
Here's an example of what I'm talking about:
