Hey everyone, this is my first post here but I've been reading and looking at everyone's work here a long time.
My question is: Does anyone have a tuttorial and any shorthand methods to draw folds in clothing? I have been struggling with this a long time and I cannot find a way that really makes believable "folds." Any suggestions? Thank you!
Oh, I forgot, how are you able to post artwork on this forum? I have stuff I'd like to show but the site says I can't? What do I do to prove my worthiness!? Thanks again.
Hi Briton... There's some info on this in Andrew Loomis' book Figure Drawing For All Its Worth, which can be viewed online here. Look about halfway down at page189.gif and start there.
Also... there's an excellent book from Burne Hogarth that might be worth your while, called Dynamic Wrinkles & Drapery, and there's also one from Bridgman called Drawing the Draped Figure: The Seven Laws of Folds , but I've never read that one.
