Day 133

The concentration this month will be clothing and/or fabric. All things textile. I need some practice on this and I think by the end of the month I'll be pumping out drawings of stitches faster than my wife can sew the real thing on her machine. Not that it's a race or anything. Here's my first one:

I didn't finish, but I think I've got a good start on it, though it just doesn't pop. Then again I spent a whole 14 minutes on it.

ooh! fabric studies! i love fabric studies! google images. fabric studies. here are some ideas: a pile of jeans either neatly folded or thrown on the table, tie a lightly colored bedsheet in a simple loose knot and draw that with natural light coming in through the window, thumb tack a pillow case to the wall so that it hangs in an almost "u" shape and draw that with natural light on it, sheets loosely thrown over a chair (with natural light from the side), photograph the figure (if friends and family are willing to go along with you) wrapped in bedsheets, photograph somebody with a sheet wrapped around the head, the fabric of a dress as it wraps around seated legs.

Thanks for the tips man! I've already been running out of ideas as I'm sure you could guess by my later posts. I really need to find something more exciting than your average person dressed in average clothes. I found a new images of a sheet wrapped around a body that I'm a little scared of but they did pique my interest.
