The ability to create believable cloth is an important part of any character artist’s training.

When cloth drapes over an underlying shape, or reacts to wind and gravity, it consistently forms a few basic shapes that showcase its structure. Understanding the basic shapes that are created when cloth reacts to outside influences will greatly improve your ability to recreate and design beautiful and believable cloth. Before we analyze the specific types of folds, it's important to remember that as artists, we are designing our cloth, not just trying to recreate reality. We want to make our cloth look better than reality, but much like other principles of character design, basing it on a foundation of real world understanding is a great place to start.
