Description

Product Description

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.

30 years ago, I bought a page out of an old book with the image of two fully clothed figures. But their clothing was so sheer, it seemed almost translucent. They did not appear nude, but the material was like liquid, folding over & around them. I could see the contour of the woman''s thin legs, because the delicate material was so carefully draped over them. Even the tattered silk tights on the male seemed worn, imperfect & drooped slightly over the bones of his knobby knees. It''s as if the artist painted their bodies completely before ever painting their clothes. It was romantic, elegant & slightly surreal. This book reminds me of that style so much. It emphasizes the body under the clothes - what happens where they touch & what happens where they don''t - the movement of the fabric should tell you all the information about the body it is covering. It''s like a conversation between a silk scarf & a gentle breeze. I love this book. The step by step examples of the draped body''s form & movement, will ''unfold'' the mystery of the movement in the fabric. (pun intended)

The book gives you good information but skips parts that amateur or beginners might get confused on. Most teaching books about drawing leave out information and steps to do because the author/artist has assumed they are petty. They forget that most people get the book are novices and want to expand their ability. So for some the information can be confusing.

Best drapery tutorials for advanced artists.
Reviewed in the United States on May 3, 2018
Absolute best book for the mid-advanced to advanced artist looking to understand how to scientifically replicate folds of fabric. Shows different methods of how the fabric settles using physics and allows the artist to fully understand how to invent hyper realistic drapery.

I appreciate the fact the author is thorough and serious about how to depict a clothed figure. If you’re like me, and want to perfect how to draw the figure in this way, then as you read it, and apply the principles, it starts to make sense.

I am a professional portrait artist, and teacher. This book does offer very easy to understand instructions. The greatest value of the book is the way it teaches students how to look at folds and the reason why they fold that way; type of material, thickness of the material, gravity or other forces, form underneath. Once that is understood, any person can create folds from imagination. It has many examples to make sure the point is clear.
