One way to identify points of tension in cloth folds is by looking for a crease or stretch line.

The point of tension can be inside the fold, outside of the fold, or somewhere in between.

Another way to identify points of tension is by looking at the overall shape of the fabric. This will help you determine whether the fabric is curved or flat. Whether the folds are curved or flat will depend on the amount of tension, weight of the fabric, and the amount of fabric.

basic type

The most basic type of fold is the pipe fold. This is created when the fabric hangs from a point of tension. This is most often caused by the weight of the clothing or the motion of the body.

Another type of fold is a zig-zag fold. This is generated when pants bunch up at the knees or behind the knees. The fabric creates a zig-zag pattern and alternates between areas that fold inward and areas that fold outward. These folds should have an organic feel.


The number of folds will also depend on how tightly worn the fabric is. For example, more tightly worn jeans tend to have less folds. In addition to learning how to draw zig-zag folds, you will also need to learn how to draw other types of folds. Knowing how to draw clothing folds will allow you to have a better understanding of how to produce better visual results.
