coat in the wind - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Hello! Im trying to make a coat look like it is flapping in the wind. I've made a coat out of several paths but I don't really like how it comes out. I don't really get that touch of it being a coat. The shadowing between the folds being the hardest part i think! Anyone have an idea of how this could be done? Or an address to some nice tutorial for shadowmaking. Thanks!...

    Otto,

    There is a multitude of possible approaches. It's always difficult to advise someone on how to proceed on a "how do I draw a..." kind of question without some indication of the stylistic treament in mind.

    If you could post somewhere a screenshot of something similar to what you want to achieve, or of your results so far which you are unhappy with, I'm sure you'll get several replies.

    There is a guy named W. Forrest who does some amazing renditions of fabric (and people) in Illustrator using gradient meshes. But it is not something that can easily be taught in a brief post.

    Check out the coat on the Faceless Assassin image in this gallery:

    I'd love to see the artwork view for those.

    Boss: What are you working on, Bert?

    Me: Oh, learning stuff from this forum. It's very useful for improving my Illustrator skills...

    Me: For example, this person here, Teri, is an Illustrator engineer. She comes up with some really good stuff.

    Boss: Really?

    Me: Yeah, look, she just posted a link to some great graphics (I click on the link FOR THE FIRST TIME, it's a link from Teri after all!)... Click!

    Boss: Hmmm, I see, yes that qualifies as graphics, I suppose. See this little pink piece of paper?

    Me: Oh, Sh*t

    Guess I'll be flapping my coat in the wind, pounding the pavement...

    Scott,

    Didn't you notice that it turns into an artwork view as you rollover it?

    I think I'll wait 'til I get home before I roll over some of those, if that's alright with you.
