Sometimes there is a part of a reference picture that just screams out to me to draw it. This was exactly what happened when I saw the drapery folds on this Star Wars character study
There is something about folds!
Throughout art history we see it over and over- delicate curving folds in clothing,still lifes – a device often seen in many master artworks. Why? Because they are dramatic and give movement to the piece and well, just because they are insanely fun to work! Would I have chosen to do this image without all that interesting drapery? If an image moves you and calls out to be created by all means jump in and take the journey!
