Kimono drawing guide ½, by Kaoruko Maya (tumblr, pixiv, site). Booklet is available in pdf for ¥ 900 here.

Here you can see:

  • female kimono and yukata (note how the juban underwear peeks when in kimono + how belts differ)
  • male yukata and kimono (note how the juban underwear peeks when in kimono)
  • dressing up: male (kimono is not closed yet) and female (kimono closed with datejime belt and ready to put on obi)
  • differences between female and male kimono once dressed (note how the collars and belts set)
  • common drawing mistakes (compare with previous picture: shoulders lines are too defined, there is a double hem, collars are narrow, belt is not at the right place etc)
  • women back collar (the lower the sexier) and men back collar (close to the nape)
  • back and sleeves differences between men and women
  • collars and sleeves and view of how kimono drapes around body
  • Furisode back (long sleeves kimono) and formal furisode obi knot example
