Draw a shirt
Draw the outline of a basic T-shirt.
Add folds to the sleeves, inside, and hem areas using v-shaped, curved, or hooked lines. Note shoulder areas tend to be flat while the body of shirt has a wavy appearance.
Add subtle folds
Add subtle folds. Notice where the body bends or bulges beneath the shirt, such as at breasts, elbows, waist, or back, and add these more subtle folds.
Erase unwanted lines
Erase any unwanted lines you drew when outlining the shirt.
Add light, medium and dark tones, making shadowed areas, such as the inside of folds where it's darkest.
Try other types of clothes
Try drawing more challenging clothes once you've mastered the T-shirt. With these tips under your belt, you can dress your figures in high style.
