    Well first of all Hogarth, the illustrator is a dynamic artist, there is no doubt about that. And I did learn something from this book, however... In my opinion, this is a book for beginners and it does explain kinetic forces, the push and pull of fabric, crossing wrinkles, compression wrinkles, hanging wrinkles, passive or lying wrinkles, wrinkle patterns, textures, and supposedly different materials. For me there were just too many wrinkles. Everything looked like it was made out of cheese clo Well first of all Hogarth, the illustrator is a dynamic artist, there is no doubt about that.

In my opinion, this is a book for beginners and it does explain kinetic forces, the push and pull of fabric, crossing wrinkles, compression wrinkles, hanging wrinkles, passive or lying wrinkles, wrinkle patterns, textures, and supposedly different materials. For me there were just too many wrinkles. Everything looked like it was made out of cheese cloth and soaking wet.,or moulded out of papier-mâché, to represent wrinkles. By the 4 th illustration I just about had it, and began to get sick of the technique. I started noticing the obvious anatomical mistakes in the drawings. From that point forward I had to suspend my judgement and just concentrate on only what little I could get from this particular book.

    An excellent book I constantly refer back to for drawing the clothed figure.

    Not for beginners, which meant I felt a bit overwhelmed. Each page has a stunning drawing of some imaginative character in flight, mid dance or doing sports with their costumes, helms and skirts flying. There is no how-to whatsoever, and the explanations center around what points, or anchors of the body clothing wrinkles crease from. The word crotch was used a lot. You'd need to be decent at drawing anatomy and most textures already to be able to use the information. I would have liked to see mo Not for beginners, which meant I felt a bit overwhelmed.

You'd need to be decent at drawing anatomy and most textures already to be able to use the information. I would have liked to see more tips about how drawing specific materials should be handled. But the sheer variety of scenarios and drawings in the book makes it worth looking at even if your own sketching skills are amateur level. One of the best points the author made was how art students are taught to draw the nude human form, but are usually given no schooling on drawing realistic clothing and costume, despite the fact that in most art humans are clothed, or household scenes contain draperies. This lack of seemingly obvious artistic training is what he set out to remedy, and if the drawings within are hyper-wrinkled, its probably just to show what we are all missing out on.

    While not especially reader friendly with its stiff wording and excessive jargon, the first half of this book contains what is probably the most practical system for understanding why wrinkles form that I've read. Simple, easy to understand, and something even novices like myself can begin incorporating successfully into their own work right away. The rest of the book deals with specific cases -- wrinkles formed underwater, wrinkles appearing in old clothing, etc -- some of which is more useful While not especially reader friendly with its stiff wording and excessive jargon, the first half of this book contains what is probably the most practical system for understanding why wrinkles form that I've read.

Still, taken all together, this really is one of the few worthwhile books of its type I've seen. Most instructional drawing guides tend to ignore or breeze through the important topic of clothing altogether, leaving it to the artist to figure out why wrinkles form the way they do. This will give you a pretty good foundation for understanding the hows and whys of it all. It probably won't teach an experienced artist anything new but for everyone else, I'd say it's highly recommended.

    This is maybe one of the best books on folds and drapery, and learning how to draw cloth from imagination. BUT It's not a book for beginners. Hogarth's style is very particular and often not entirely accurate or true to life. The book also doesn't give a step-by-step explanation, but it does show all types of folds and wrinkles and how they occur. So if you want to understand cloth and learn to draw it without references, it's the perfect fit, if you want to learn how to copy it from life and make This is maybe one of the best books on folds and drapery, and learning how to draw cloth from imagination.

    This, in my view, is one of his best books. It really helps you understand the mechanics of why things wrinkle and fold the way they do in real life. This is essential for the artist, especially if reference is not used.

    The purpose of this book is to help the reader depict wrinkles, folds, and drapery by taking a closer look at how the actions of the figure move the material they're wearing. Here is how the fabric is moving and why. If you're an experienced artist this book probably won't teach you much, but if you're just getting into art or struggling a bit with drawing fabrics, I do think it's worth picking this one up.

Examples in art books can be a bit extreme or look silly despite how useful the information is (i.e. one reviewers mention of the clothing looking like it's sopping wet cheese cloth). If an artist can't apply what they're teaching in a demonstration then the audience won't take it seriously, but I don't think Burne is a bad artist. Some his examples are extreme poses and the material can look funny, sure, but once I looked past the fact that this artists style differs from my own, I created work of my own that I was happy with. Practice makes perfect, especially with a topic like drawing fabrics.

    A great source for body movements, and fabrics' textures. Liked that they did some close ups to the figures.

    Burne does it again in form and space relation,with body movement in connection to fabric

    This is a must have reference book for any serious artist. It helps makes sense of the way clothing drapes on a figure in all sorts of movements. I refer to this one a lot.

    I found this book to be helpful when I first started drawing clothed figures. I think most beginning drawing students would find some of the illustrations helpful and instructive.

    A good book for understanding how drapery and wrinkles on the human form. Not as "exciting" as some of his other books, but still has good information within.
