Q03 Drawing Denim

In this lesson, I show you how to draw the edge of a tiny section of hemmed denim fabric that is gently folding. Drawing believable fabrics is integral to accurately rendering a drawing of a clothed person. The folds and bends of clothing can reveal the forms of the unseen figure underneath. Denim has survived several decades of fashion designers and seems to be here to stay. Its most endearing quality is that it takes on a distinctive personality as it fades, especially on the hems of jeans. In this exercise, I show you how blending creates softly textured denim fabric.
