looking for differing cloth references
« on: January 14, 2018, 09:10:01 PM »
hello all ~

i was wondering if someone happened to have or know of a good collection of different types of clothing folds and such ? i'm looking more for life photos, people wearing different types of clothes with not too difficult to observe clothing folds, wrinkles, etc.

I don't know whether it would be useful to you or not, or if it's even what you've got in mind, but whenever I need ideas for a style of clothing, I look at ModCloth.com.  I'm sure there are lots of pictures of lots of different folds there (along with the clothes that go with them).

Hopefully it helps, anyway. :)

O, that IS a good site for clothing ideas! :D
Plus if you get tired of searching for references you can just shop! XD

Both men's and women's fashion magazines are also good for reference. :)

Pinterest is my go-to for art references. I can spend hours on Pinterest... but sometimes unrelated or strange things pop up, so be careful there.

Clothing folds, eh? You asked for photographs, but there's a non-photographic resource called Dynamic Wrinkles and Drapery by Burne Hogarth, which might be of some use. Not that you should follow everything he says, but he did take the time to understand a difficult part of drawing.
