Publisher's Description

Packed with indispensable information on a vital aspect of drawing, this time-honored manual offers expert guidance on how to draw shirts, pants, skirts, gloves, hats, coats, and undergarments on the human figure. Step by simple step, artists will discover how these garments fit and drape the body at rest and in action. Abundant with detailed illustrations, photographs, and diagrams, Drawing Drapery from Head to Toe familiarizes readers with the properties of cloth and how it moves; it also examines the origins of folds in relation to the figure, the effects of pull and crush, action folds, creasing, and more. The result: a keen development of the essential techniques for creating realistic, masterfully rendered drawings of the clothed figure.
One of few books on the subject of drawing drapery, this volume was written by a noted artist and instructor. Easy to follow, full of fascinating advice, and highly enjoyable to read, it is sure to become a well-thumbed guide.
