How I do - Skirts by *rika-dono
Just a few basic tips for drawing fabric and clothing.
Have some poopy pictures I took from a fashion design book at school.
Hi, there! I’m back with an extremely short guide to kimono!
Disclaimer: I do not pretend to know everything there is to know about kimono and this guide only covers the smallest fraction of information. What is in this guide comes purely from my own knowledge and research, and I am very sorry if I made any mistakes. Let me know if I did and I’ll fix it asap :). I’m also sorry for the terrible drawing of the girl on page 4(rilly rilly bad) :T
Lastly, these pics are massive! Forgive me! m(__)m
(All of these will be in Japanese. There are lots of pictures so it’s okay if you can’t read it!)
1) Kimono (this is the page I referenced for my drawing on page 4. It is a wonderful breakdown of kimono structure and the artist shows much more detail than I did. Check this link out for sure!)
5) Moar obi!1!
7) Google Japan image search results for ‘obi musubikata’ (obi how to tie)
And that’s all! I hope this was useful for anyone wanting to draw kimono but perhaps having a little trouble with the details :)

Great stuff! Reblogging for people who’ve asked me about finding historical clothing references online.
I always have trouble with this. This is god sent.
a bunch of fashion illustration exercises from earlier today
Link to full size, it’s a big one
I said I have a lot of thoughts about shoes and the woeful mistakes even seasoned professional artists make with them, and I wasn’t kidding. Here’s a lot of words about high heels, in a constructive way.

Some of you wanted a booty tut. And yesterday someone asked for tips for some butt wearing jeans… So I’m gonna kind of combine the two.
This is gonna sound ridiculous but it’s a subtle art… yeah I just said that…
First of all the best way to learn would be to look at real models so… either look at your boyfriend’s ass or watch porn with hot dudes with awesome ass…
If you don’t have either then look at this.
Enough rambling. Let’s start with the basics. It’s most difficult to draw a man’s butt so let’s cover that.
I think with that you can get an idea of how to do it. You don’t have to draw two circles to do a butt.
Now let’s talk about how it look when walking.
When one of the legs is behind the that bum will go up… of course it depends of how much the leg is thrown backwards.
The contrary happens to the bum with the leg that’s stretching in front of the torso.
Now these lines not necessarily are too pronounced, just enough so that it gives the impression he is walking.
NOW!!! let’s dress our butty.
THE FIRST STEP to draw some nice jeans is to actually sit down and look at your jeans!
We all have an idea in our heads of how jeans look but it’s usually not a very good or complete image and we end up doing something like the thing on the left. So I want you to take out one of your jeans and look at them. The soul of the jeans are the seams. So they’re very important when drawing them.
Now let’s go back just a step here… and I want to you to keep remembering that unless flat the bum has volume… so I’m gonna draw it sideways too so that you can see. This also helps you to keep in mine how big is the butt you’re gonna draw *giggles*
This is not a tut on how to draw dicks so I left that part…err… alone.
First thing you need to define is how low cut your jeans will be… so
we do the band where the belt goes first… and mark where the pockets will go.
THE POCKETS ARE WHAT WILL HELP YOU TO CREATE THE DEPTH AND VOLUME YOU NEED! SO important!
Add the first seams.
Make sure not to draw them like cardboard planks, try to follow the lines of the butt.
Keep drawing the drawings on the pockets. Drawings on the pockets are important… even when they’re simple. it gives your drawing more texture and a real feeling that those are jeans.
Next we trace some wrinkles… ALWAYS following the lines of the bum.
Once we have that keep drawing the rest… add shadows for a better view… it’s a damn nice bum.
Experiment with different types of jeans or trousers! But always respect the lines of the bum. and if they’re jeans… the seams and details…
….I can’t believe I spend like 3 hours talking and drawing bum…
hope this helps!
i will always reblog suit reference so others hopefully stop drawing suits wrong (i’m sorry that sounds sassy as hell.)
