What you'll learn
In this tutorial, members will learn proven techniques for illustrating realistic form and folds for clothing. We'll begin this process by breaking down specific body parts into simple shapes and examine how they appear in three-dimensional space. Based on this information, we'll learn how we can apply accurate clothing hemlines and edges onto various parts of the body, allowing us to block in articles of clothing. From there, we'll explore a series of common and specific folds and learn how they play an important role in drawing clothing. We'll finish by adding some final fashionable details to some articles of clothing we've drawn. As we'll see, understanding body form and position will allow you to create accurate types of folds for clothing, giving a sense of form, volume, depth, and movement. Software required: Photoshop CS6.
