Anonymous said: Some of your artworks have sort of... triangle stuff as cloth folds. i like that technique. Is there a name for it? ive seen other artists use it too. my interest is piqued. are there any tricks/ 'rules' to it?

sojuice:

i’m not sure what it’s called either..haha

it’s fun to do in grayscale, and it looks nice

i’m not sure how to describe it…it reminds me of looking at a diamond….

or paper bags, when you crinkle them

think of those lines you draw beforehand to help you shade

image

it doesn’t always have to be triangles either

image

draw lines from the corners and connect it where you see fit

like tangram…?

image

i usually just color the triangles in lineless to avoid cleaning the lines up

i drew the triangles in here… this is what i would think of

image

use the lightest color to highlight the triangles

heyo!
don’t worry, your english turned out fine, dude.

as a foreword of warning,
it is best that you don’t use this post as a standalone tutorial, 
instead, try to use it as a study aid to help you make sense of real-life references.
(same applies for any decent “art tutorial” out there, really. :p)
