View Full Version : Suggestions needed for buying drapery books

12 December 2006, 01:30 AM
Hey guys,

I am planning to buy a book about drawing drapery for this X'mas; probably, I will get Hogarth' s "Dynamic Wrinkles and Drapery"; but anyway, I would like to hear more suggestions from you guys . Are there any other inspirational and useful drapery books I should also consider??

Also, pls tell me how you practise for drawing / painting drapery?? setting up a still-life
? or grab photos from magazines and copy them?? I need any kinds of advices :)

Throw in your opinions pls~
Thx in advance.

Well, what can be better than the book is a video. I haven't seen it myself, but I'm pretty sure it's great. It's Vilppu's DVD about drapery. Found HERE ( I've seen lots of his dvd's about anatomy, and they're great, so I tend to think that this can't be a disapointment. If not, I do think that Hogarth's book is a good choice.
It's always better to draw from life if you have a chance. I do not recommend photos. Studies from great masters would be better, in my opinion.
