Hi, my name is Eric. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw ruffles in clothes. So let's go down, let's just draw a dress, so let's start with the straps here, do that, bring this down, let's ruffle it on the bottom and just draw some curves to that, whoop, that's pretty far out there, bring this down, bring this around. Okay and then let's bring, I'm going to actually make this more three dimension since it's going to come in the bottom. Let's bring some lines out here and add some dimension to it. Let's bring this up, let's draw some lines coming up, add this. And see it curves around here and you can add the texture here, some darkness there. Let's add a line here for another ruffle, draw this. Now this is probably more even like a curtain right now but just to draw how they loop around, draw this, come down and let's ruffle it up here a bit too, bring this down, bring this around. Now let's just draw some arms there just to show how it would lay a bit, do that there, a finger, add some feet and let's bring that up to a neck and that, let's bring this up a little higher and then let's just add some more texture for the ruffles, bring this line here and you just want the ruffle lines to follow the flow of the garment. And that is how you draw ruffles in clothes.
