DRAW MANGA / ANIME CLOTHING : HOW TO DRAW MANGA / ANIME CLOTHES WITH DRAWING LESSONS
I was asked to put together a tutorial on clothing. I figured my goal shouldn't be to show you how to draw clothes. There's too many styles. So I thought it would be more useful to show you how clothes behave on the body. That way you can at least get the physics right and design whatever you want.
You would think the buckle is simple but most people represent it as a square box on a thick line. A little attention to detail will make your pics looks sharper. Draw the buckle as shown here with the strap overlapping the back end of the buckle and ticking into the loop.
Designing clothes can be one of the toughest jobs for an artist. Clothes need to suit the type of character. Such as if you were drawing an empress, it is very unlikely you would see her wearing jeans. Then there is adding the folds to the clothing. Folds make the drawing seem three-dimensional and not "flat".
I've done this like ancient times ago and I find it hilarious although these things are still how I think they are so.
So, first thing we need is our character, a simple sketch will do for practicing clothes. The first thing to do when making clothes, is to chose what kind of fabric is being used, keep in mind that, the heavier the fabric is, the heavier the character itself will look.
This is a tutorial to give you some ideas on various types of clothing and folds.
Thought I might as well share this with those who might need it. This would double as a reference sheet for clothing and folds/wrinkles. I varied body types a little too.
