Casually posts this at 3 am when no one is going to see it.
but FOLDS hoyl shit folds folds are so awesome man you literally have no idea I like drawing folds som uch I’ll put them in places where they don’t even belong sometimes. Honestly this is far from definitive and is just my understanding of how folds works gleamed from hours upon hours staring at strangers pants on mass transit, so don’t take my word for it, do your own study! Look at your own jeans in the mirror! look at other peoples jeans! google jeans on the internets! Each different fit is going to come with it’s own folds, depending on factors like the cut of the leg and how much fabric there is and how heavy it is and man there are just so many variables and things to think about it’s awesome
Brilliant and adorable. I will have to try this.
this is probably posted here already, but it is pretty much the most helpful thing ever so i’m gonna post it, too.
PRAISE THE LAWD, I’VE NEEDED THIS SO BAD
Feet are so hard, you guys.
I still don’t understand feet
aaaaa I was asked to make that ask rebloggable so I guess it’s only fair that I kind of elaborate a little
like I said before
circle for head and joints
rectangular shape for the torso
oval for the pelvis
and simple lines for the limbs, neck, feet, etc.
in terms of different genders as far as torsos go:
males are more like the letter V. they have broader shoulders and narrower hips than women do.
females are more like the letter X. this is because our hips aren’t as narrow as male’s.
!!!!! not all people are like this though! some men have wide hips or small shoulders and some women have narrower hips and wide shoulders !!!!!
also factor in weight, do they distribute fat more in their torso or their hips, legs, butt, etc.? are they tall and lean or fat and pudgy? a character that is tall yet wide will have a heavier, boxier torso in the sketch than say a character that is small and thin who will have smaller lines and a smaller torso, arm length, etc.
long story short, *basic shapes and lines just to get the idea down, *then filling in the character’s features.
keep in mind this isn’t the right way or the only way or even a GOOD way, just the method I use. learn from other artists and what bodies look like to you and STUDY.
