so I’m showing you how to draw a circle skirt twice, one time when the fabric is firmer and one time with a really soft fabric, I hope that is helpful for you! If you have special items of clothing you want to know how to draw, let me know and they will be featured within the next weeks.
so if the figurine would be laying on her back the skirt would lay like this, just so we are all on the same page about what a circle skirt is, this also makes it easy to have a form you can start with
first I draw a skirt made of firm fabric, this skirt will have still quite some volume on the hem
if you were looking from the floor the folds would be big and go in soft circles
but your looking from the front so you dont see the big circles, be careful not to place the folds to even, or it will look more like pleats
make the side line and them hem a little more “wobbly” so it will look natural and not drawn with a ruler
as you might notice with the hands on the hips it would never looked like on the left side
of course there will be other folds and ruffles were the skirt is pushed together
but again it should be only a few but big ones, since thats what firm fabric would do
a soft fabric behaves totally different, it will follow the hips and go straight down from there (right angle to the ground), if you legs are wide open of course it will follow the leg
there gonna be a lot of little folds and such
start with coloring it evenly in your wished color
and then go in there with a slightly darker color (mine is way to dark but it shows what I did better) and put some shadows into the skirt.
What do you think?
keep sewing and smiling and drawing
