clothes folds

Business Trip

getting up far too early, letting the morning sun seep in,
keeping sleep at bay with fleeting moments of reading
a passage from a faded novel to keep from thinking
too much, as he slowly packed away his clothes.

he kept folding fabric without looking up,
to do anything else was impossible,
if he did, he would see her face.

it would have been enough
to take the life from limb,
to climb back into bed,

and simply let her
be with him.

Hey friends!

Sorry for the late TUTOR TUESDAY, but here it is! Today is on clothing folds and was a recommendation from @kitemist, thanks! If you have any recommendations you’d like to see send ‘em in here or my personal! Hopefully I can expand on clothes more soon! Keep practicing, have fun, and I’ll see you next week!

quick tutorial on clothing folds for people with no idea how to draw clothing folds

so if, like me, you’ve done all the research on how clothing folds, and you have a decent idea how the physics works, but you just can’t get it to look right?

change all your lines into this

im serious

it makes everything look so much more natural

for added realism, just add random bumps to the line wherever you put one

and there you go!

(please dont judge me for my anatomy i drew this in five minutes)

THANK YOU! ANON!

I stopped the coloring of the shirt here cause I guess you get the basic idea. If you wanna see more of the coloring and the brush I use you can look HERE!
Also you can see how not just folds but shading can define a form HERE!

I hope this helps! I’m so bad with words and explaining things (/)//(/)

But I love you more than words can say
