However, I’m not a big fan of the “tights as fashion” look, so I gave her khakis, using a great many straight lines and trying to keep to angles rather than curves – following the lines of the legs to determine the drape and flow of the pants, and drawing some small detail, but not too much. Just in one leg I can count at least eleven key points that I would have to match up from one frame to the next, though currently these shapes are easier to work with than the shapes of her bare legs.
Now…I have issues with hands and feet; some days I can draw them, some days I can’t. So I cheated – I gave her immensely long pants that completely conceal her feet. We’re going to say that I did that to make her easier to animate, because that means that I would rarely have to worry about her feet. But if you do draw shoes, remember that you’re only hurting yourself if you have to draw every single lace and tread.
Also don’t forget, when adding clothing, that you should still try to keep your shapes entirely enclosed.
