Adding accessories

You can draw different accessories for your characters to demonstrate different characteristics and to add authenticity. For example, if your character works at an office, he probably has to wear a tie.

We explain how to draw a collar on a shirt in the earlier section, "Drawing your character's garb." Now we tell you how to add a tie (see Figure 7-26).

1. Draw a diamond between the two collar points.

2. From the bottom of the diamond, draw a straight line down to the middle of the belly.

3. From the bottom of the diamond, draw another line down that flares out like an upside-down cone.

4. Draw a line in a V shape at the bottom to connect the two lines.

5. Add a crazy tie pattern and you're done!

Identifying an office worker is easy — he's wearing a tie!
