Between the lines.
No matter how many times I study reference books, go to a live model study, or just look at my favorite artists’ work, I always end up slipping back into my old patterns of drawing folds. Those standard clothing fold that happen with all tight, hipster garb, regular fitted clothing, loose, oversize idiot-wear, or even the occasional spacesuit have some definite rules to follow. I can’t help but ignore some of them. So, I try to constantly retain myself with what clothing does on certain limbs, joints, body types, tension points, and all that jazz. It’s a losing battle. If I don’t keep up on it, i always revert back to bad habits.
Anyway, here was a warm-up space suit I did this morning, trying to get my folds focused.
I used a Copic drawing pen. I love the feel of the thing, but the one I bought has the most inconsistent ink flow of any tool I own. Sigh…
