    Tricky cloth folds barricading my way.

    If there's one thing about manga drawing I can't get hang of - it is cloth folds.

    Seriously, I'm hopeless. I've read so many tutorials, and still can't guess how to fold the clothes on characters to make them look plausible. That's why clothes I draw look shamefully blank. Maybe this is because all characters I've created so far are wearing T-shirts, which don't have much tendency to fold (heh, I just have a thing for T-shirts. If my future girlfriend ever wants to look sexy to me, I'll want her to wear a friggin' T-shirt )

    Do you have any suggestions what is the fastest way to figure out folds? I dunno, a reference? Copy-drawing a bit? MORE TUTORIALS?

    I'm terrible at this too. I think real-life references work best. Grab an article of clothing and draw it.

    Click Me - I think I started drawing folds when I looked at this. Draw what you see there, and then try to apply what you have learned on real-life items.
