Adding Patterns to Clothing!


For more updates, tips and links;
Please support me on Patreon for more content and exclusive tutorials!


Here is an overview of how I would apply texture/or patterns over clothing.

This example is looking at a pinstriped suit pattern... but I'm pretty certain the same principles would apply if the cloth was say, checkered or tartan. I haven't tried it out yet, so let me know if it works for you!

It also doesn't have to be for a "realistic" style to. If you have a cartoon-like illustration or semi-realistic, it's a good way to get a consistent looking pattern going on!

Also there is probably a shit ton of spelling/grammar errors in there...but whatevs lol

I never thought of using the warp tool for patterns - but it definitely will make it easier to create patterns than to hand paint them (that's why I avoided patterns whenever possible ^^). I have to try this out, it looks so much easier and prettier than hand-painting patterns - thank you for sharing this idea.

Very cool tut! Thanks! I use other programs but, I'm pretty sure I can use a similar technique in my programs. :D I appreciate it! :D

How you bend and warp it around the fabric can probably be done a few ways, but the key here is making the pattern yourself, really :D It can be applicable pretty much anywhere!

Indeed! And thanks again! :D

(still love Homer chasing Bart btw ;) )
