Daily Update: Drawing Clothes

So, as I’d thought, drawing clothes is still really difficult.

The difficulty of drawing clothes

Drafting, colouring, shading, and highlighting are one thing. They ARE all important to the end product: if you know where you’re supposed to be putting them, which is the real issue. Clothing folds are still extremely difficult to plan out for me, and I need to find a method of planning them out before drawing before I move onto the next step. I think the first few steps are easy, but it’s the folds that cause issues.

  1. Outline
  2. Colour
  3. Shade (Using a hard full opacity brush)
  4. Go from there, using softer brushes, soft erasers, and watercolour brushes.

Shading with watercolour

I have tried out watercolour and…it’s great! …in certain conditions. Shading certain folds with it does produce some nice results, but with others, not so much. I do end up having to switch brushes a lot but that’s fine.

Next up

Just continuing to trial-and-error my way through drawing clothes until I find a decent method.

By the way, I’ll be working the entire day tomorrow, so I probably won’t have the time/energy/all of the above to post anything so I’d like to apologize in advance.

Anywho! Thanks for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow (If I can)!
