Tutorial: Rendering Fabrics (Fashion Illustrations)
Someone asked me about my rendering and here’s a breakdown of how I roughly do it. The renderings are all done with Copic Sketch markers, nothing else, using the side with the brush tip.
It’s all about stacking and then blending with the base colour. Copics are alcohol-based so it can blend seamlessly if you go over it a few times. I usually use colours that are 4 shades apart, saves you ink (instead of stacking a lot, just use a darker colour), but you have to be careful. If you accidentally go over too much or block your lines outs, you can always sort of rescue yourself with the use of a white coloured pencil or accent your lines with a white pen.
