Clothing Folds Tutorial by solfieri Clothing Folds Tutorial by solfieri

FREAKIN'

LAAAASSSSTTT!!

I finally took the will to assemble some old sketches done for the purpose of this tutorial and write the thing. It's so hard and troublesome. >_>

I hope this'll be useful to someone out there. This is my first tutorial, so if you spot any glaring mistakes please bear with me (but do point them out!).

Enjoy! :la:

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-04-14
Clothing Folds Tutorial by *solfieri Suggesters Words: Easy to read and user-friendly tutorial that introduces us to the helpful triangular axis and shows a simple way to make the folds more realistic. I found it pretty useful, so I think other deviants will too! ( Suggested by aque-mizuhara and Featured by shelldevil )

Saw this years ago and been looking for it since. You have a nice logic seeing the folds.

do you draw the general shape over a body, or you use just imagination?

Q for folks who looked at this before I did: has something changed here? As of right now I'm not seeing any "download the full size" button, and if I right-click the image on this page and save it what I get is "39908c9907789c35ad3cfbd4bd84019e-d37rt9o.jpg" which is 383 px by 2083 px. I can see the marked-up example images pretty well and get the point of the tut, but I can't read the text at all, way too fuzzy. Thanks!

But it isn't always that folds are drawn with triangular axis. In step 6, part 4, right and middle part of clothes on her stomach has straight horizontal lines, because it looks good instead of making it triangular. Not to mention the folds in the middle of the skirt, they are like that just because... It's hard because it seems that there are no rules from which to know how folds are placed.

How would you draw an article of clothing (say a button-up shirt) on a male whose shoulder is being pushed against by another's hand? Would there be any obvious folds or creases that change based on the action?
