I was drawing a kimono, and needed a reference. Good thing I found this! I was drawing the wrap to the left! XD

I think in several of my drawings it was wraped left... I also left some of the sleeve off.

thats really usefull and detailed : D very good to look up things.
but i have to say (maybe someone mentioned it already) obiage and obijime are NOT only accessories, actually the obiage holds the obimakura, which is together with obijime needed for most of the knot/bow styles in which the obi is tied. except when you wear yukata, then they are only decorative

there is no (under)skirt today. and you can see how kimono looks not on a human easily, just google "kimono museum" for example

Is the obi tied tightly around the torso or is it blukey? ive seen people draw it tightly and some have it quite blukey so i dont really know.
Reply
:iconelruu:
Elruu Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2011
it depends from type of obi (length, thikness) and how you tie it
just google photo and see for yourself
