Step 1: Leg Outline
Step 2: Adding the 'Floating' Skirt
Now look at the arrows I drew. If you look closely, you can see that the flap next to the one that's too sharp is connected to the waist completely. This usually means that the skirt ends here. However, to add more perspective into it, draw flaps behind it. make sure they're GRADUALLY getting smaller.
Now you're probably wondering why you should draw skirts that are shaped like flowers. As I mentioned before, we need the the laws of physics. When jumping, I highly doubt your skirt would stay down... Unless you're wearing a pencil skirt, that's a different story. As gravity pushes you down, an upward force would also be applied to you causing the skirt to 'float'. Yes, I sound nerdy right now but please bear with me. Always keep the rule of gravity in your head when drawing. Whether it's short skirts, long skirts or baggy pants, this rule will always apply to clothing.
So... What do you think of this tutorial? I would love to see your drawings!
