Russian Drawing Course 6: Drapery

The Zig-Zag fold will serve primarily as a review for all that you’ve learned about drawing drapery up to this point. You will learn the construction of the Zig-Zag fold that is most similar to the Half-Lock fold, then you will learn how to observe,  construct and render the Zig-Zag fold placed over a cylindrical fold as commonly found in pant legs or sweater sleeves.

This lesson includes both the reference image used in the lecture as well as a 3d model of the plaster cast for your assignment.
