Hello all, I seem to be having trouble applying patterns on fabric and getting the fine details on them. I would appreciate any advice.
What part of the fabric do you think needs improvement?
The shades and texture of the fabric match those of the rest of the image.
Overall the end result is impressive.
To me what seems to be off is the the perspective of the patterns. It looks like you have a 2D pattern on a 3D object. It's not as noticeable on the sleeve because of all the light and dark patches in the folds, but I can especially see it on the fabric around the waist and front part of the shoulder. If you are using photoshop I would suggest duplicating the layer and playing around with the pattern using warp, scale, and perspective. Select only certain areas of the pattern and adjust accordingly to the perspective.
For example, the diamond pattern around the waist... the diamonds should be getting skinnier or appear closer together horizontally as it gets closer to the background.
Here's a good example of patterns and how the perspective affects them.
