Tutorial : Creases and Folds

By KealeS
1K Favourites
I decided to create a tutorial to try help people understand the way creases and folds are formed. I often see a lot of drawings where the creases look random and don't appear to be correct. I myself am a victim of crappy creases and have only recently started to improve, so I thought I'd share my new discovered knowledge.
