Tips in rendering satin
Satin has smooth, flowing, liquid-like reflections that glow with soft edges.
Because it is highly reflective you must consider the dark reflections as well as the light reflections.
This satin shoe was used in an advertisement for bridalwear.
Graphite pencil was used for the shoe rendering and a fine-line black pen for the bead outlines.
