Casually posts this at 3 am when no one is going to see it.
but FOLDS hoyl shit folds folds are so awesome man you literally have no idea I like drawing folds som uch I’ll put them in places where they don’t even belong sometimes. Honestly this is far from definitive and is just my understanding of how folds works gleamed from hours upon hours staring at strangers pants on mass transit, so don’t take my word for it, do your own study! Look at your own jeans in the mirror! look at other peoples jeans! google jeans on the internets! Each different fit is going to come with it’s own folds, depending on factors like the cut of the leg and how much fabric there is and how heavy it is and man there are just so many variables and things to think about it’s awesome

An introduction to the finer details of menswear, and how to get them right in your… aw, hell, why am I describing it here? Read the intro!
Felt like scanning a few pages from my Graphic-Sha book ‘Drawing Yaoi’ (lmao)
There’s actually a couple more clothing references in here like for shoes and gloves if anyone cares to see them (｡◕‿◕｡)
(Sorry this is so long, tumblr won’t let me un-indent all the things without messing the hyperlinks up BLUH. So press J to skip.)
I just went back through over 900 liked posts and dug out all the art tutorials so i can keep track of them. I guess this might be helpful to some of you guys, so here you go.
Some of these were gutted from posts where the original was deleted and so can’t be linked to in the masterpost list - especially one by Tumblr user melkh who has since either deleted or changed their url, so props to them.
Here we go then!
Alchemy - this is a really fun program. You play around making abstract shapes until you start to see something in them, kind of like a Rorschach test. Then you use the shapes as a base to draw it from.
MyPaint - a pretty decent painting program that also has the benefit of working on Unix systems.
openCanvas 1.1 - I haven’t used openCanvas in years but it was a nice program with a pretty unique feel to it.
ArtRage - Only used this a couple of times donkey’s years ago just before I got oC, but I’ve heard good things about it.
The GIMP - In a similar vein to Photoshop, but free. I couldn’t get on with it when I tried it out a few years ago, but it’s pretty popular and is available on Unix systems and Macs.
Photoshop - Standard painting fare. Probably the most flexible program (particularly the latest versions) but not designed to act in a “natural” way. If you’ve used it for painting versus something like Painter you know what I mean. Who the fuck pays for it though? Google “Photoshop tumblr masterpost” and take your pick.
Paint Tool Sai - Far more affordable and definitely worth paying for if you can. The brushes are very decent (especially when they’ve been tweaked a little), the gui is simple and intuitive, and I dare you to find a program with which making smooth lineart is easier.
Corel Painter - My program of choice for most things. More tools than you could ever possibly use and pretty cheap on a student license, providing that you can prove you’re a student! It’s got a few bugs but if you want realism or a more natural feel than PS or SAI this is the program for you.

criminallyincompetent (check out their #reference and #tutorial tags, they’re gold)
once again this is just what i have collected from others so i own none of these links, i just put this together for myself so it would be easier for me to find art links and what not
Hands down, my most favored go-to when looking for aid with digital (and traditional) painting.
Edit: Fixed the 8th link. Jesus Christ people 5000 notes? You guys are crazy
I’ve been saving links, links of tutorials, books, etc.
And pretty much, this is what I have so far.
Conceptart.org Tutorials (one of my favourite sites)

I take no credit for any of this, all I did was assemble them togetha’.
Online Expressions Tool
There is a multitude of expressions and 21 views of each. You can slide around each picture as well as zoom in and out. It’s great for reference, especially since it’s in black and white it’s good for seeing only the values.
Here is the site.
