Russian Drawing Course 6: Drapery

In this lesson you will learn the Half-Lock fold. This fold directly builds on the knowledge you learned from the Diaper Fold and Pipe fold with the added element of drawing overlapping fabric. You will analyze and draw the structure of the Half-Lock and learn how to tackle cast shadows and occlusion shadows to bring believability to your drawing.

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