Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating fabric folds, part of The Making of Times Square: The People.
One of the most complex parts of doing all the people in Times Square is not…really the hair, the eyes, or the faces.

In this installment, The People, Bert illustrates how he created the hyperrealistic portrayals of the dozens of people inhabiting his painting, many of which he drew from real-life friends and family. The course shows how to construct eyes, lips, ears, and other facial features, paint natural looking skin, add hair, apply makeup, and create fabric folds, stitching, and texture to emulate clothing. Bert shows how digital artists can recreate these effects at home, using the tools in Photoshop and Illustrator and a little imagination.
