How to Draw Folds

Step 1.

First, and far-most, you'll be needing models to draw the clothes on. This procedure will be needing to take part for practicing. Establish the guidelines for the characters to get started.

Step 2.

Sketch the bodies for the characters, considering to taking care while drawing the poses. You don't need to create them perfectly, but knowing how they are moving, will effect the movement of the clothes.

Step 3.

Create the faces and expressions, making sure you know what your character will appear. Add the clothing and evaluate how they will seem with the working body poses.

Step 4.

Here's a tip for drawing the fold's detail. Take a look at the sample picture shown. The pink colored lines are the folds direction, and how they should be acted upon the position of the body(s). The blue arrows guide you on the direction for placing the wrinkles.

Step 5.

With patience, time, and practice, this should be your outcome. Erase un-needed guidelines and you're all set!

Step 6.

Uh-oh! Here is a spiffy sample showing how folds/ruffles should be drawn. Steps 1-4 show the step by step for creating the folds = 1= Begin by establishing a few squiggly lines. It's similar to writing with an "S"; playing with the direction in a snake-like way. 2= Don't with the normal "U" siding, just draw lines as the step shows on the opposite side of the "U". 3= Don't draw on the upper "U" side this time; just draw short lines as the sample shows underside of the "U"s (look closely). 4= Repeat the 1-3 step to draw a few layers for Lolita dress. A is the basis appearance for the folds. Just start with W line first, then draw the line following the direction of the arrowhead here. B shows the repeat (1) shape like writing the opposite V again to create the (2) one (1) , then create the (3) on the (2), repeats the opposite V and so on to create the basis folds line.

Step 7.

A-E I show you a few guides on drawing folds in different manors. Depict the motion of the clothes like foretold in the previous steps.

Step 8.

Remember what the arrows are for and the pinkish-red lines.

Step 9.

With initial clean up, you're totally done!
