An old response to an anon ask re: how clothing falls on the torso.

Just like in martial arts, conveying power is a matter of chaining things together.

If a pattern exists, we see the group before we see the individual parts.

Imagine your strokes as moving over a 3D form!
(I probably could've illustrated the rendering brushstrokes example a bit better, but I find this really shows up in traditional media.)

I'm usually against hierarchies, but I'll make one exception.

No matter what they’re wearing, people will need to take a break sometime.
