i have a question about drawing clothes with writing on them; when i do it it always seems to turn out slightly ~wrong~. like not all the letters look to be the same size, or like i stretched them/ shortened them in the wrong place. how do you always do it so perfectly? is there some secret to it, or is it mostly trial and error?
Honestly, its a lot of trial and error :’D What I’ve noticed when drawing letters on clothing is the letters have to follow the folds of the clothes - which becomes easier the more you practice. If you have any clothes with lettering or shapes on them (even stripes if you really want to give yourself a headache PFF), take a photo and study how the lines follow the creases!
giving yourself a small guide too can help! What I tend to do when I include letters is stencil out a box shape that follows the shape of the body (even if there aren’t any creases on the chest area for e.g, there’ll still be a slight curve because chests aren’t flat), and then I use that stencil to make the letters fit the shape! Like so:
I hope some of that helps Anon :’D I’ve never tried to do a tutorial before because I find it really tricky to explain how I do things - but I hope even some of this has helped. Honestly the best thing to do is just practice from photos and remember the letters and shapes will distort depending on the angle of the clothing, you’ll get the hang of it in time
