folds draw

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)

this was gonna be a tutorial and i guess it still is but if anything it’s just a really long and drawn out “essay” on drawing people with epicanthic folds. one of my biggest pet peeves is people drawing asian people exclusively with the same type of eye they’d give white people or anyone else who typically doesn’t have the fold! however i know that most people are taught with the standard white person eye (google image search for “eye” and it’ll all be pictures of white people’s eyes) so learning to draw epicanthic folds is a consciously learned thing. 

therefore i bring you this, which attempts to break the mechanics of epicanthic folds down into something that’s a bit easier to digest and implement in your own art! 

style can be argued i guess but it’s not that hard to stylize eyes with folds if you do proper observation and research. eyes with epicanthic folds are as diverse as eyes without so it’s not like you have to adhere to a strict model for them (although many people think that you have to) and all it takes to distinguish the two in stylized art (and even in semi/realism once you think about it) is a few lines! like i said this is a learned process but it’ll make your asian characters (and characters of other races even) a bit more interesting and believable.

ever wanted to do some stuff? like, different stuff? tired of having to scroll through your huge ref tag? LOOK NO FURTHER!! Have a masterpost of LITERALLY EVERYTHING which took me 5 hours to make so reblog it

I’ve had a few messages over the last few months telling me that this post was invalid and can’t be reblogged/liked?? … can’t figure out why?? I don’t like to repost things (especially when they’re over 6 months old and really out of date) buuuut here it is again… kitty breeds! <3

Adrienette - Post-Reveal 


I couldn’t help it. I had to draw Adrienette being adorably domestic. Plus there’s the scarf. So have some bad line-art. It is literally all I am capable of :3

Right, here we go with my brand new series of tutorials, entitled How to THINK When you DRAW. I’m going to hit a massive range of subjects, techniques and approaches in this series, so there should be something for everyone, no matter what your interests or ability level.

Oh, and if you have any area of drawing that you’d particularly like to see a tutorial for, TWEET US HERE with your REQUESTS, and I’ll do my best to tackle them for you :)

The first two tutorials are looking at how to draw draping or hanging fabric and creases, enjoy!

Lorenzo!

Hi! c: I hope I'm not bothering you omg... I was wondering - one of my favorite things about your style is the way you draw folds in clothing, both in the lineart and (especially) with colors alone. Do you have any tips about that? My folds always look flat or out of place no matter how much reference I use :c (also sending some scouting ticket luck your way! I mean I'm one of those sinners who only soloyolo bUT STILL)

you’re not bothering me at all anon! I’m not sure if I can explain very well but I’ll give it my best shot ;v;

(also thank u for sending luck aa :’) don’t soloyolo kids ><)
