Steps to Draw a Cloak 

A cloak is a piece of clothing that is worn over other clothes, and is often used to protect the wearer from the cold weather. Cloaks are usually made from a heavy, thick fabric, and are often lined with fur. Cloaks can be made from a variety of different fabrics, including wool, velvet, and even leather.

There are a few things to keep in mind when drawing a cloak.

  • First, cloaks are usually made from heavy fabrics, so they should hangs down in folds.
  • Second, cloaks are often lined with fur, so the inside of the cloak should be a different colour than the outside.
  • Third, cloaks are typically fastened at the neck, so be sure to include a clasp or button in your drawing.

Finally, cloaks can be worn in a variety of different ways, so don’t be afraid to experiment with the way you draw the cloak on your character. With a little practice, you’ll be able to draw a cloak that looks realistic and stylish.
