Painting Fabrics: Part II
Tutorial Tuesday
Welcome Back!
If you’ve missed the first part, you can find it here.
I do urge you to read it if you are relatively new to painting, and would like to find out about the basic rules when it comes to painting fabrics. If you don't need that, please, do read on!
So, without further ado, let’s jump right back into it. Having discussed different fabrics and their attributes, I thought it would be nice to continue with patterned fabrics, how to work them into your paintings, and what to look out for.

[ Detail of a painting by Hyacinthe Rigaud ]
Painting Patterns
So you have the basic fabric thing down and now want to move on to decorating the clothes your characters are wearing with something that catches the eye. Like stripes! They are simple enough... or are they?

Painting Fabrics: Part I
Tutorial Tuesday
An overlooked Luxury

We wear them, we sleep in them, we drape our windows with them, wave them around in the shape of banners and flags, or snuggle up on the couch in them.

[ Oil Painting by John William Godward ]
Fabrics are an integral part of our lives, and as such we have become so used to them that we don't really look at them anymore. They just exist, and that's it. The only time we may look at them more closely is if we see an elaborately decorated gown that deserves our undivided attention, or if they show up in paintings and illustrations, though even there they often seem to blend into the background, becoming a part of the whole.
And here is the crux of the matter: As budding artists, people indeed often forget about fabrics. It’s more important to get the character to look right, or to get the perspective of the scene spot on, than to spare one iota of tho

First of all , let me thank all the people who participated on my art request booth! I appreciate it so much (:
In this journal , I'll be posting the list of people who got picked .... and for those who got unlucky , there's always next time . Besides , this is only the first.

I also want to mention that I was rather strict on this event , and for that I won't apologize for it. It's important to follow my rules and requirements , as it shows respect to the one who is doing a request for you .

This journal will also serve as a progress checker for me and you , so that you may know who's next on the list if you ever missed my art posts  (:

Question of the Week:

What music did you like when you were younger?

When I was gradeschool , I'm not really into music. I just listen anything when the radio is on .

Highschool was different though. I was into emo songs , linkin' park , r&b and mostly rock music .Oh yeah , and black-eyed piece! xD


XCrossfangX's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art

A DA user that goes by the name Crossfang.I mostly post fanarts , but I do occasionally draw my own stuffs. I'm here just to share my art and look on other people's art while making friends!But mostly , just a place where I can dump my finished art works.

If you want to use some of my art , a permission is needed from me.

Lampcf by XCrossfangX:Goals: Lampcf by XCrossfangX
* Able to make a decent scenic artwork and backgrounds at some point . *Polishing my works further.


Flowercf by XCrossfangXAbout me: Flowercf by XCrossfangX

No , I'm not a nice person , or a bad one either. I act nice and act bad , that's it.

I started from making pixel art from the game Starbound and became an active forum user at the Chucklefish forums. When my PC broke , I didn't have much to do art wise, so I thought , "let's try digital art from my phone tab", and after that, I gradually enjoyed doing digital! xD

Through out my years in the forum, I finished a lot of art requests! Both pixel and digital (1.5 years of digital art experience so far).

With that, I can safely say, I'm better in grasping art right now .But I still make mistakes and I intend to grow even further.
