How to sculpt clothes such as shirts and jackets?

I’m wanting to start sculpting some characters, but I’m trying to figure out how to sculpt clothing items to add. If anyone has some good tips for how to do this, I would greatly appreciate it. :+1:t2:

Quick’n’dirty way…

Start with a torso form

Paint a mask representing the targeted apparel shape. Here, I’m in a FRONT, non-perspective view using SelMask with a Lasso to get my mask. Note that Symmetry is ON.

In the SelMask tool options, set the desired thickness of the clothing. Here, I have 0.02. Further down on the Extract section, I have it on “Shell”. Although not too evident in this shot, the word “Extract” itself is a button. Press it….

The mask turns into an extracted article of clothing ready to be sculpted on.

Here’s ProcreateFX’s clothing tutorial - I found his method of keeping extracted clothes as simple as possible in order to sculpt w/the clay brush was very useful.
