Requested Tutorial - Clothing

something different and new for me!~ this was requested as a tutorial : o ive never done a tutorial before so i apologize if this isn't any bit helpful. this is my general approach to clothing. its best to learn how to do stuff the hard way before taking any shortcuts, a lesson ive learned from my mentors, but theres no point in driving yourself absolutely crazy about it so if this helps something to click then great ive done what i wanted to~!

everything shown in this tutorial has been produced in photoshop, however, should really be able to apply across the board

So helpful! I've hunted down a million tutorials/vidoes/etc and this is just so spot on. There's more than one way to skin a cat but it helps if you have a sharp knife.

That metaphor was supposed to be complimentary, not creepy...

Extremely helpful. Really hard to find techniques on painting clothing. Drawing yes, painting clothing nope.

Thank you for making this tutorial! :D This will definitely help me in creating more folds in the clothing rather than making the clothes look stiff! :)

This is a great tutorial! :clap: :la:

You should create more tutorials, I think the way you explain it makes it all quite clear.
I know it takes time to create tutorials that are this in-depth, but you learn for (and improve) yourself as well
when creating these tutorials.

Love the tutorial and your explanations which are easy to understand. I myself, always encounter problems when i try to draw clothes. The creases are my biggest challenge and till now i have not mastered them. Hopefully there will be more success in my future attempts. :)

PS, i love your style.  Shading is to perfection and your art is just phenomenal!! (Definitely putting you on my watch list!)  

Keep them Coming!
