Folds

Drawing convincing clothing and folds can add a lot of realism and believability to a drawing. Like a lot of things, when an artist draws them well you don't even notice them; you only notice when they're drawn poorly.

The Famous Artists Course that I own has a great chapter on drawing folds. Here it is, in its entirety (again).


Even if you're not drawing men wearing shirts and jackets, or women wearing skirts, the same principles apply.

Thank-you! Will go through this. I really need to practice folds and drapery. And you're right, one notices only when they're drawn poorly. ac
