Draping Folds by ArandaDill Draping Folds by ArandaDill
The illustrator's name for this type of fold is called a "diaper fold." I don't like this name however, so I call it a draping fold. This fold occurs when fabric is suspended between two points. I think this type of fold is very whimsical. This was was an assignment for Clothed Figure 2.

Col-erase pencil on sketchbook paper.

This made me want to take a shower for some reason. Towels, perhaps. Drawing folds is just as difficult as drawing toes... Hhh, this might come in handy :aww:

very nice drape folds!I like the term draping fold better, too. You dont wanna think about runny baby butts when you look at fine art!

Exactly! It's the most beautiful kind of fold and it get associated with baby diapers? Good grief. Not many babies even wear cloth diapers anymore, at least in western culture.

yeah. who would wanna clean that up? altho they should prob be making diapers compostable instead of plastic-y, since ppl go through so many of 'em

I'm sure they do make compostable diapers. :) If not, then well, washable cloth diapers are always an option. :iconyeeeeaaaah:

This is an excellent piece of art and super duper helpful, especially because I can't draw folds AT ALL. I mean, I can somewhat, and they look relatively good, but they're nothing compared to this.
Thanks for putting this up for the public to enjoy!

These are really good. I always have heaps of trouble drawing clothes (mainly because of the folds), but these are really well done.
