Model Stylized Shawl

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


asking for your expertise here.


I am modelling a character that's a bit inspired by iconography 



I want to use basic shapes when modelling as much as possible.


I want the character to be wearing a sort of cloth or cape wrapped around his neck like the below




I know there's probably a lot of ways to do that but asking what would be the best way.


What i did was draw a Spline with a Sketch Pen tool, then "Loft"ed it, then Extruded it but it doesn't feel like it is wraped or placed around the neck..


What do you think would be the best and most efficient way to do this?

I'd do it with a disc primitive initially I think, with an inner radius to use as a neck hole and a suitable slice removed at the front. Then you could use a cloth tag, (or manual modelling) to drape that over your model...






Lower pic shows that under Cloth SDS, which adds thickness, and then that under Regular SDS L2.
