Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist and today we're going to draw wrinkles in a blanket. So the first thing we're going to do is draw our blanket. A blanket, first of all, if it has wrinkles in it, that means it's probably not a solid square. So as you can see I did this kind of squiggly line to indicate that our blanket is sort of muffed up. Then we're going to take some of these corners and bring them in. Just take these lines and just kind of bring them in like so. You can do one in the middle and pull one down from the top, from the sides, the blanket is kind of, just take your lines and sort of mix them around. They don't have to be perfect and they don't all have to go in the same direction either. Some of the wrinkles can go outward, come up and join even. Some of these can even be kind of joined together. This blanket is very wrinkly, we've got a lot of wrinkles. So just take your marker or your pen and just give it a lot of different lines here and then once we've got a bunch of different lines, we're going to go back in with our blue marker and shade some of them in so that it gives those wrinkles a little bit of depth and makes them come to life and look like the blanket is really actually being ruffled and not just two dimensional. And you can just put the lines right beside them, just kind of beside them to sort of highlight where the wrinkles are. You can even just take the other color and just also add some shading throughout the blanket to give it a kind of a wrinkled effect. And that is how you draw a wrinkled blanket.
