I'm going to be painting the Dorothy figure from the Wild West Oz set soon, and I'd like to paint her in the character's classic blue gingham dress. Any hints for how to get the effect of all those small checks? Is it better to just paint it all blue since form a distance the checks kind of disappear anyway? Or is it better to paint it checkered, just with much bigger, paintable, checks? Or is there actually some way to get that speckled look gingham has from a middle distance?
So hear is a loaded cannon for every one; How do you paint fabric to make it look realistic. I personally tend to build up many layers of highlights and shadows and that how I do fabric, I may free hand a designee on but that really about it. I've notice wile going threw some of last years winners for reaper con that some of the fabric was painted in a almost stippled effect and it look more like a hand stitched/hand made dress or tabard. I have been trying to replicate this with no avail what so ever and going back threw old work I seem to have gotten something close back when I was learning to paint and I have no idea what I did to get that textured look. Any advice out there on how to get this look?
