Day 140

I googled some images tonight and fell on some already drawn pieces of draped fabric. I was hesitant at first to draw from a drawing but eventually the time got later and I found one that looked, I'll use the word safe. As I began to draw it I figured I'd just copy it line for line, shade for shade when all of a sudden I said to myself, "Screw this! This has already been drawn!" I referenced the drawing up until that point, about five or so minutes. The rest came from my own mind, about 30 minutes. So the basic sweep is the same but every fold save one or two is my own. For that I like this and wasn't so impatient with it as I usually am with fabric - copying every fold and crease. And also for that I like my drawing better than the other.
