The Artist's Guide to Drawing the Clothed Figure: A Complete Resource on Rendering Clothing and Drapery

Availability: Ready to download

In order to effectively draw clothing and drapery, an artist must recognize the basic shapes of clothing and how the principles of physics act upon those shapes.             Beginning with the basic shapes of clothing and the anatomy of folds, and progressing to final rendering techniques of both sculpted and loose drapery on solid forms—including how motion affects wrinkl In order to effectively draw clothing and drapery, an artist must recognize the basic shapes of clothing and how the principles of physics act upon those shapes.             Beginning with the basic shapes of clothing and the anatomy of folds, and progressing to final rendering techniques of both sculpted and loose drapery on solid forms—including how motion affects wrinkles, folds, and waves, The Artist’s Guide to Drawing the Clothed Figure presents a novel and completely thorough approach to understanding the mechanics of drapery.             This comprehensive resource examines the mechanical principles behind the formation of folds: simple wave patterns, intersecting wave patterns, and tertiary effects upon these two, such as twisting and flowing forms. The book breaks down all clothing into three types: sculpted forms, loose drapery, and, most especially, tubes.             Once these mechanics are established, various techniques for rendering clothing are presented, including how factors such as the stiffness, thickness, or texture of a particular material can affect the appearance of an article of clothing. Throughout, the author examines examples from master draftspersons—old masters, cartoonists, illustrators, and fashion illustrators, including Leonardo da Vinci, Ingres, Degas, Joseph Christian, Leyendecker, Charles Dana Gibson, Raphael, and Will Eisner—to see how they interpreted this information.

    This book is well worth the time for anyone that is wanting to learn to draw clothing. I found the opening chapter to be especially helpful in the way the author breaks down the properties of fabric in general. This then makes the remaining chapters to go much smoother as it is easy to reflect back on the first chapter to identify how the cloth would actually flow on the human body. I read through this book on my own and not as part of a class and found it extremely easy to follow and work throu This book is well worth the time for anyone that is wanting to learn to draw clothing.

    Simply divine! Very organized, through with examples both from the writer and the masters, and quietly brilliant. It even includes sections on the moving figure (which is great for animators like me).

    This book was very detailed and the author did a good job simplifying the ideas. I look forward to applying the recommendations.
