asked me to do a backview tutorial, but with the hood up this time.
So this tutorial focus more on the hood. If you want more explanation on drawing the body part, please check out my other backview tutorial. ^u^
If you do use this or any of my tutorials, please fave the tutorial so I know it is being of use to you.
1. First, I start with two line curving in slightly from the outter edge of the shoulders to neck. From there I draw on either side of the neck, two more lines that run up the length of the neck and stop.
2. Second, I draw lines on both sides of the head coming up from the shoulders at an angle that is slightly leaning away from the head. Still keep it pretty close to your headline when you are drawing because the hood is meant to look as if it is pulled taught-ish against the back of the head. (If you look at a profile view of a hood up on someones head in a photo, you'll get what I mean.)
3. This part is pretty simple. I just continue from my previous lines and curve it over the head. Leave some room between the head and the ling of the hood at the top, where the crown of the head is. When I wear hoodies, unless I'm holding the hood down against my head tightly, there usually seems to be this point at the crown where it bulges. (I suppose this is due to how the pieces are sew so it curves over your head.)
4. Now, just add fold and wrinkles coming from the sides. Have them angled upward at a slight tilt so they seem to be coming from the front of the hood where more of the materials weight lies.
5&6: These are basically the body and sleeves of the hoodie in reverse view. I explain it more in my previous back view tutorial that I linked above.
So, I hope this was helpful.
Once again, I have to say I'm glad so many people find my tutorials useful.
A tip for drawing anything in general, even if you are drawing it for cartoony or manga style characters, try to observe what you are drawing in real-life. That way you gett a better view of how fabric or anything in general folds and bends or moves and flows.
Not to sound weird, but I learn more with drawing poses and clothes by people-watching and realistic references rather than seeing others draw it.
