Tutorial: Draw Better Kimono by iheartsendai Tutorial: Draw Better Kimono by iheartsendai
A quick, very messy guide that I hope is helpful anyway! :D

Those of you who know a lot about kimono will notice I glossed over a few things, but this is meant as an overview of the most common mistakes I see artists making when drawing people in kimono/geisha/etc. Cosplayers might find it handy too. Feel free to share your own kimono art or ask questions, and I'll help if I can. :)

Also! If you like kimono/traditional Japanese things, please check out my blog:

EDIT: Wow! O_O I had no idea people would like this tutorial this much. Thank you very much to everyone who has favorited it! :D

EDIT 2: NEW TUTORIAL! If you liked this one, please check out
"Tutorial: Real or Fake Kimono". (Only #1 is repeated information from this tutorial, but I figured it was important.)

This is a blessing. As a cosplayer I'm trying to sew a kimono for myself but oh my it is harder then I thought it will be :D So this little helping tutorial is really a good source of details for me :)
(Now I must say- I'm dead based on the way I was wearing it XD)
