Tips For Drawing Clothing by raru-tan Tips For Drawing Clothing by raru-tan
Just a few VERY basic tips for drawing fabric and clothing.
I'm not good at explaining, so sorry if it's not very clear :s If you have any questions just ask and I'll do my best!

I've been wanting to make a tutorial on either clothing or hair(cause those are what I love to draw most) for a long time, but I was always afraid I'd get a harsh critique or negative comments regarding how my anatomy or style are far from realistic or pointing out any other technical mistakes I would make. But I convinced myself that making tutorials and giving tips should be about helping others, rather than showing off technical skill.

I know it's probably ignorant to use the excuse that 'it's my style' but this really is my way of doing things, and I don't claim this to be totally correct. This isn't for people who want to draw fabric totally accurately or realistically, it's to show others my way of drawing fabric, and hopefully help them with their own way of drawing it. And of course, the places for wrinkles and stretching are different for each body shape, I just stuck to one shape to keep it short and consistent.

So all critiques or comments are welcomed, and I'd appreciate them a lot. Thank you for reading <3

The tips are very helpful to the audience, it also depends on the artists themselves but I can't really say anything about it. For me maybe, hmm there are other artists that doesn't draw like this so you'll have to excuse them because you just have a different point of view. But overall, this helps for the artists that would want a basic tutorial before adding their own styles for their own art work. You could also try to add more modern clothes for the tutorial, again depending on the artist. Sorry if this is a bad critique, it's my first time doing so.

Good... I suck at drawing these and pretty much got alot of practice due to your tutorial. Your instructions are clear and I give you a thumbs up! I really like on how you explain it well 'cuz english isn't my first language and I... *shrugs* don't know why but you make it simpler to understand. All I could say that you make it very understandable to me *cough* us. I hope that you post more and I really like to say is that keep up the good work on making these kind of tutorials. Thanks for sharing it with us!

OwO Yes, that will help tremendously! It's hard to see all the individual ruffles in the photo but they are easy to see in the drawing!

Ah, I'm super glad! A lot of artists show the ruffles using shading(which I think is easier and looks neater) rather than with lines, but its up to you how you show it~ Good luck ^^

This is very useful for me, as I am not good at drawing clothes.

One thing I would have hoped for was where you would place all the lines that are inside of the clothing. (For example, the wrinkle lines in the first clothing.) Overall, it's useful!

I'm glad you found it to be useful! I'm not exactly sure what you mean by 'placing the lines that are inside of the clothing'.

The fold lines. The creases.

Yes, but I don't see why it'd be necessary to show lines that are on the inside of the garments.
