Fundamentals of Folds To carve any realistic object, an understanding of its construction is essential.In fact, the more you see when studying a subject, the more you will be able to reproduce it.When the subject is folds (whether folds in clothing, folds in a draped cloth, or folds in a bent leaf), the best starting point is to thoroughly examine and analyze the object to be duplicated.
I realize that an 'Anatomy of Folds' is a book length topic, so instead, this article introduces some fundamental principles along with a little 'how-to' exercise for practice.Fold FundamentalsFirst of all, let's consider the nature of the material being folded.
Very few materials stretch unless they are being pulled.If they are pulled, they are flattened, thus eliminating the folds.This is logical.However, the dimensions of a material, even when folded, must stay reasonably constant.
As a result, if the material is raised in one spot, the width must decrease.For the practice exercise, I have kept the ends the same length.Due to the bend in the material, the ripples must be adjusted for the sides to remain equal lengths.
As a fold is flattened, it becomes shorter in height....
