The model didn’t show up today, so we all took turns posing and explored clothing. I still feel like clothed figures are one of the most difficult thing to draw. Different fabrics will have vastly different behaviors and the design of the clothing itself will have a huge impact on the way it interacts with the body. To be clear, the theory of folds and wrinkles isn’t too hard to grasp but, applying it and drawing it clearly is another animal entirely. It does pay off though. Most characters you will have to draw will probably wear some kind of clothes. Don’t be afraid, try it out!
