Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating stitching on cloth, part of Bert Monroy: The Making of Times Square, The People.
There is another brush that made an appearance several times throughout the…entire painting of Times Square and that is a brush to create stitching, because…stitching appears in many places and I'll show you a couple of them.…Here is my friend John.…I am getting in real close so you'll see some of the stitching in this piece.…So we're getting close here on his arm.…You see the stitching on his shirt there, and we see the stitching on the wristband.…And we come over here and see John Knoll. If we get in close down here,…you'll see that there's stitching on his shirt, stitching on his jeans, all…over the place there, and my wife on her jacket, and so this jacket you see…there's stitching all through it in all different parts, and even some of the billboards.…

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.
