Folded cloth

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Here’s my lit­tle trick for de­pict­ing folded cloth. I cre­ate a flat or rack brush first with some tex­ture in it to make it look less dig­i­tal, and in the Nat­u­ral Brush Me­dia win­dow on the shape Dy­nam­ics tab I set An­gle Jit­ter to Pen Pres­sure. This makes my brush re­act a lit­tle strangely and it takes a while to get used to, but it does help me paint cloth re­al­is­ti­cally.

First colours

I place a new Over­lay, Mul­ti­ply or Hard Light layer above my art and start paint­ing in colour. Some­times I se­lect the area I want to colour us­ing the Lasso tool, copy it on to a new layer and try dif­fer­ent colours us­ing the Hue/Sat­u­ra­tion tool. I of­ten start colour­ing the back­ground be­cause this will de­ter­mine the colours of my bounce lights and shad­ows in the fore­ground.
