Fabric Forms

Fabric Forms

Garments create a variety of forms as a result of how the fabric is shaped or draped over the figure. Designers create form by applying principles of highlight and shadow and varying the value of color. Colors that change value gradually are referred to as gradients, with Adobe Illustrator’s Mesh Tool apply various dark and light values of color to assign highlight and shadow the the shape. Fine tune the gradients by dragging the mesh-point handles, create sharp and gradual value changes to render folds within the garment form.
