Step-by-step: Cre­ate a naked fig­ure, then add wet hair and cloth­ing

1 It’s im­por­tant for me to un­der­stand the fig­ure be­cause wet cloth­ing will cling to it more closely than dry. I sketch out a pose of what will be a young woman hold­ing up her skirts slightly. This is done with Pen­cil and Paint­brush tools in Sketch­Book Pro. 2 I sketch out clothes on a new layer and block it in with solid colour on a layer be­neath that. The ex­tra weight of wet fab­ric will cause it to hang straighter, and be­ing wet may also af­fect the colour. I pick a green for the skirt and white for the blouse. 3 Shad­ing helps with the vol­umes. I paint with browns and pur­ples on sev­eral lay­ers set to Mul­ti­ply. I limit the spread of the high­lights, where I want ar­eas to look wettest. Her white blouse ap­pears semi-trans­par­ent where it sticks to her skin.
