Tuesday Tips - FOLDS

More on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.

A little tip for other Book Lovers: If you buy three books (The Stand by Stephen King, Looking for Alaska by John Green and Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell), don’t start with the one 1,153 pages long. The other two books will be staring at you all the time wondering when is their time and it’ll be hard to concentrate. If the world is coming to an end, you need to concentrate.
