Fashion Clothed Figure Drawing

This figure is clothed in cylinders. A cylinder covers each arm—another covers the body and legs. The cylinders shown cover, but do not fit the figure.

DRAPERY

Clothes are simply pieces of cloth sewn together to make a covering for the nude figure. Study the force of gravity (downward pull) on one piece of cloth under many conditions. By doing this you may better understand the cause of the folds which seem to give so much trouble when drawing the clothed figure.

If you will take a piece of cloth a yard square and make various drawing of it, as shown by the drawings on the following pages, you will learn the cause and formation of folds which add Interest to an otherwise plain piece of material.
