With over 150 votes, this was the top tutorial request and now you can watch the tutorials on creating clothing wrinkles and fabric folding! 

In this course Tim Von Rueden takes you through the steps on creating realistic clothing wrinkles and folding fabric. In this three part series, we first take a look at the basics and understanding how clothing and fabric works. From there we look at a demonstration on creating realistic folding fabric and then taking all that we’ve learned previously and drawing a few examples of drawing clothing from that.

Trying to use just this image as a tutorial since I don't have the spare cash to pay to view the video, this feels a bit "rest of the owl"-y

Okay, that "compass" of elements that make up fabric materials is ingenious. :clap:

Looks like a great tutorial but when I try to view it, it says that I have to sign up for a membership to CGCookie and then pay to upgrade to a "Citizen" membership.  Is that accurate, or am I missing something.  If someone could let me know, I'd very much appreciate it.  Thanks!

Ugh, I never really understood how to 'properly' draw clothing folds, but hopefully this will help me to overcome any shortcomings I had with drawing clothing-- x)) Lovely tutorial, thank you so much for uploading!~~ :heart:
