Tutorial - How To Draw Clothing-textures

« previous entry | next entry »
Dec. 22nd, 2011 | 12:36 pm

Note: this post will only be usefull to you if you create or plan to start creating.

The title is a bit missleading - I wouldn't like to call this a tutorial as it doesn't explain everything detailed step-by-step, but more in a tips and tricks kind of way. And I want to point out that there are tons of different ways to draw textures - this is just merely how I do it. You do whatever you feel comfortable with, of course.
Sooo.. About I week ago I spoke some with Kotangens and it ended up with me offering to make some kind of mini-tutorial-thingy to show how I draw my textures. I took the pictures for the tutorial not very long after that, but only just yesterday started working on the explaining-part. I didn't feel like writing so I just read it all in completely randomly without looking through the pictures before or anything. You can even hear my reaction when I in the end discover that I've been talking for 25 minutes XD
I uploaded the tutorial and you can download it through the download-link below. There are fifteen (I think) rather big pictures included, one sound-file and a read me-file. Read the read me before you start listening to the tutorial. It should include most of the information you will need. If there are any questions feel free to ask, as I say in the read me, I wont bite :3

Oh, thank you, Lina. Clothing textures scare the crap out of me, so surely I'm going to find this useful.

Awhhh Lina, thank you so so much for doing this! <3 <3 <3
Can't wait to try it out!

And woah, record lasts 25 minutes, I doubt I will understand everything with my "great" knowledges of English :,D I always get not good marks for audio exercises at English @ school. Seems it will be a good experience for me haha

p.s. your voice is so so so adorable, listening to the Lidiqnata pronouncing part, you're constantly cute *^____^*

Thank you XD

This is very helpful to look through, thank you for sharing Lina :) My method is very similar to yours but differs towards the end. I don't usually add light patches, but I'll give it a go as it seems to improve the results.

Thank you. I personally find that highlights add more depth to a texture, but that's just me. Different people have different on this for obvious reasons. I hope it will be usefull in one way or another :)

aww <3
I miss talking to you too. I sent you a PM on GoS, but I thought of something after I sent it: I think I'm starting to feel weird because I'm afraid of loosing you (that sound cliché, doesn't it? XD). I guess I'm trying to make distance not to get hurt the same way I've been hurt before. I don't want to be distant, though, so I will try to work on it. See you in chat later :)

I don't know if you'd be one to need it (your clothes-textures are flawless), but thank you for looking through it :)

It was still really neat to see how you do it. Our methods are actually very similar, but you use milkshape and I use body shop. I would use milkshape, but I like having the alpha and the texture seperate while I'm working so I can put texture/color anywhere and the alpha will keep everything hidden or showing the way I want it. Using milkshape would be really cool though because then I could also mess around with the mesh while I was in there.
And yeah, doing the lines for the creases then smudging them is also my favorite part. ;D

There are advantages and disadvantages with both methods, I supposed :)

Creases are fun to make indeed ^__^

I was scared when I saw an audio file as my English is pretty bad but your voice is clear (and so cute :) ) and it's really easy to understand even for French girls ;)
It will be so useful!!! I need GIMP now!!!

Thank you so much!
