Today's Livestream Topic - I will be showing examples of creating complicated fabric folds and how to break it down! 

Artist: Tim Von Rueden (vonn)


Want to see the time conversion or check out our community forum? Find that HERE!

Today I'm taking a suggestion from our Community Idea Center by jari on Complicated Fabric and Cloth folds. This is something I find incredibly useful for any artist looking to add a more realistic look to their fabrics or even for tight areas such as the wrinkles and folds around jeans near the knee and ankle area. I am looking to go over talking about the 3 types of wrinkles (hanging, stretched, and scrunched) and when to use them. I believe painting and drawing folds and wrinkles on fabric can be fun and it only seems overwhelming but it's really not! 

Stream question of the day: What example do you want to see with fabric folding?

THIS IS THE LAST STREAM OF SEPTEMBER! I'll be in London and Virginia over the last two weeks in September and cannot stream! It's alright though because I'm coming back stronger than ever as it will be Halloween month and I have a lot of tricks and treats to share with you guys!

Your pictures were the first to appear in searching 'fundamentals,' and I feel now perhaps like Diane Kruger and Nicholas Cage in National Treasure~ Utmost appreciation for your contributions, and I shall encorporate your images and video sources into my studies.

I mean to repay the inadverdent favour some day when more capable.

Gratitude and Regards,

Hey, I'm one of your watchers. A recent Tumblr post has revealed that DA owns your art though and not you. I've made a Journal to help inform people about this as to spread the word.
Here's a link to the journal entry that tells what is going on. I suggest you make a journal entry for your watchers as well so they know what is going on.…
