    Icon I need help with drapery!!

    I've been wrestling with this drawing for a few days now, trying to peg it down as perfect as possible. The face is pretty much set but I am still quite confused about the drapery of the dress, and it's been hard to find proper reference. Any critique would be appreciated. Any suggestion of abstract background would be great also!

    Hmm I think perhaps you should check out some of the drapery tutorials on this channel and then revisit the piece.

    I would say draw the figure first and get the anatomy right and then the drapery will reflect the form underneath.
    All clothing is affected by the arms, legs and their respective movements underneath the garment and it reacts to the momentum that movement creates also.
    Try to get on you tube and find some dancers in some sort of long flowing costume and see if you can see whats happening, just as a thought, hopfully someone else might have a better idea or source of reference material for you.

    The image at present seems wrong to me, It just looks like she has no body under her breast line and is free floating in the air, sorry if that feels harsh but I can only say what I see mate.

    all the best with it.
