This is awesome. Most tutorials offer a plethora of pictures and 2-word captions, but this is very in-depth and chock-full of tips. Incredibly useful. In most of my art, I skip folds because I don't want my crappy fold depicting skills to subtract from the already bad artwork, lol. But because of this tutorial, I don't have to worry as much. Thank you!

This is one of those golden tutorials. I mean, you know how there are some where you read them but mostly use them to check your art against the pictures? This isn't one of them. It clearly explains everything and is insanely helpful even in positions that this doesn't use as examples. You did a lot of research and it shows, big time. Easily one of the best tutorials I have seen, especially for something Thais hard to get a grasp on when learning to draw.

I do have to correct you on one thing!
The folds by the crotch of most woman's pants/shorts actually go in horizontal lines across, rather than in that upwards direction. The direction of the folds is only significantly upwards to the shape of the pelvis if one leg is positioned in front or behind the other by a good amount, like if they were mid-step.
Other than that, I love this.
