I hope this will help you! (more stuff here)
I NEEDED THIS
holy shit there is a name for it
Well damn. Explains a lot.
Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better. That is Awesome.
"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.
I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.
seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.
^^^ (except it does sort of apply to me)
holy shit, i’ve felt like this for all my fucking life and didn’t know it was a legit thing and i just thought i was broken or something
i will go along and join the “THIS” and “FINALLY, A NAME FOR IT”
Felt like doing a tutorial thingy (what should I call these??) again! I think I’ll make a tag for these in case I do more. This time I’m gonna talk a little about how angles affect how clothing falls aaaand stuff. Here we go…
Given: The first drawing of these three is how the clothing naturally wants to fall, how it is made to be shaped. Or, whichever pose you could take that will give the garment the least amount of creases.
- I’ll actually talk about the green first; this is a representation of the hip box, which itself is a representation/simplification of your whole pelvis area. You see how your legs and hip box oppose angles here. in almost all poses except standing straight, your hip box and legs will create a bent angle, which affects how clothes fall.
- The red/blue is the skirt (obvs), the red specifically is the ellipses of the top and bottom openings of the skirt. This skirt is very stiff material for the sake of this example, so notice how the two ellipses always match eachother. the top ellipse is where the skirt is actually attached to the body, so it’s the boss; the bottom ellipse will more or less do exactly what the top one does.
- here’s where the fact that the legs and hip box are at different angles becomes important. The top of the skirt is attached to the hip box, but the bottom ellipse is in the realm of the legs. The orange lampshade shape diagram there is a simplification of this. It is very much like if you were to tilt a lampshade. The side you are bending towards will hug the body and create creases. The side you are bending away from will fall off the body in a straight line.
It even works with pants, though as the bottom ellipse(s) gets farther away from the top there’s more room for the garment to get distorted by gravity, perspective, and bent knees and such. But with this last example you can really see how the side touching the legs really hugs the body underneath, whereas the other side hangs off of it in a straighter, crease-less line.
Dresses are a little different because their top ellipse is attached to your torso/ribcage mass rather than the hip box.
Much of the time you get the same result as with a skirt. However if the hip box and ribcage mass are opposed sideways rather than forward or backward, it becomes a little tougher:
You can see in the third drawing how a shirt and a skirt together would fall in opposite ways if your body is bent sideways. If the shirt is long, just like I mentioned above about the long pants, there is more distortion of this effect.
I’ll take what I said above, “The side you are bending away from will fall off the body in a straight line”, and add a bit to the end: “… until it hits something.” In the fourth drawing above, the garment is falling off the body in a straight line on the right side. If you lengthen the garment:
The straight side continues down as normal until it hits the leg and becomes the body-hugging side. in response to that, the body-hugging side from farther up becomes the straight side when it falls off the hip.
Aaand with that I think I’ll stop lol. I hope that wasn’t hard to understand. It’s easy to do yourself, just wear a skirt or some loose pajama pants and take hula poses in the mirror lol.
For all of you who have been longing for ME to make a tutorial about clothes, I truly recommend you to read this post. Since it covers the area in clothing that many other tutorials never mention, clothing is more than just “drawing folds and wrinkles”, it’s about knowing how the design and the behavior of our bodies affect it.
Read this. Please. It’s so easy explained.
Rebloging for future references.
So make a new file in photoshop like this…
now create whatever it is that you want, make sure it’s centred in the square then duplicate the layer
now go to filter>other>offset
set the offset to half of the width and height of the box and select the “Wrap around” thingy
save as a png and then apply as your background
hope that was helpful!

Soooo I kinda said there would be a ficlet to go with this picture.
I’m still a pretty recent addition to the tumblr fandom, and this’ll be my first fic for TMNT. First fic in … quite some time, in all honesty xD so measure your expectations, I guess! I would like to
blamethank awesome fic-writers dawntreaderflynne, wtf-skittens and hotmilkytea for being my primary go-to SAINW inspirations whenever I feel like punishing myself with sad feels.

It wasn’t tears. It should have been. Twenty years ago she might have excused herself to fall into his arms for half an hour and sob; ten, and she would have taken a few minutes in grim silence, fighting the lump in her throat and blinking away moisture she knew she had no time for.
Now? April was just tired.
ok so I literally just made the best discovery of my artistic career
it’s basically an easy to use pose-making program with a doll. You can pose it in any pose you can imagine and view it from any angle
and this program is entirely FREE
it’s a bit of a thing to get installed and set up so I’ll write a tutorial for it later but
holy shit guys
i made that pose you see up there in like 5-6 minutes. This is fucking revolutionary. I have such a problem with poses and this is a toy that is better than any artist mannequin you can have irl. Holy shit.
it’s called daz studio 4.5 and it’s in the free section if you wanna try to install it without me explaining
Oh man! This is awesome, thank you!
THERE IS A GOD
holy shit thank you for sharing!!
Ooh ooh Ashley Ashley look
idk if you’d need this but it might be helpful for you maybe!
Ugh. Too many goddamn fucking tmnt2k12 spoilers splattered all over my fucking dash. Gonna be staying the hell off tumblr until I get my computer back from the shop and set up properly and can get a hold of the new eps myself.
I hate when people say Mikey can’t take care of himself, that he needs his brothers to bail him out of all trouble. That’s not true! On multiple occasions Splinter says Mikey is the most talented turtle he just needs to apply himself. ”Well he doesn’t ever fight. He just runs away.” No! Mikey’s fighting is dodging. He uses his opponent’s momentum against themselves. He lets them take themselves down. And he doesn’t even have to lift a finger. And if that isn’t the most epic and pacifist fighting style there is then you can get out right now.
Mikey is a lover not a fighter, but he knows sometimes bad people do bad things. BUT HE WON’T LET THEM CHANGE HIS VALUES! He isn’t going to let them make him fight. He’s going to make jokes and allow the bad guys to beat themselves up. Otherwise he’d be just as bad as them.
Mikey let’s his brothers be the muscle and the force and they allow him to be the carefree and peacemaker he is. Between his brothers, between enemies. Mikey is the turtle who never wants to hurt someone. Not because a short temper, or necessity, or even for his own protection. His belief is that you shouldn’t injure someone who injured someone else because that makes you as bad as they were. The way of a true ninja! And it makes me sad that more people don’t see that.
Ahh! The ancient fighting style of nope
