Today you will learn how to draw fabric in just nine easy steps. With this lesson, you will gain useful skills.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to draw fabric. This lesson will be very useful for you because the ability to draw fabric correctly is very important. Such skills can come in handy when you draw folds of clothes, curtains, curtains, or other decorative elements.
You can easily draw the outline of the fabric and folds. Moreover, arbitrary lines are allowed here. But pay special attention to shadows and highlights. It is the shadows that will make your drawing more realistic. The fabric is darker in those places where there are folds and indentations, and the convex parts are lighter. You must depict this in your drawing. To do this, choose several shades of different color intensities. Try to make a smooth transition between colors, then your drawing will look more realistic.
You can color the fabric in the same color as in the example, or you can choose any other color of your choice while using several shades to highlight the lighter and darker parts of the fabric.
