Subject title: Please help with shirt folds.

Hello, I am having extreme trouble with fabric folds and how to paint them. Below I've attached a painting I'm working on that shows the issue.
Any and all help is appreciated, thanks!

Here's an update on my progress. I studied cloth folds before returning to the drawing and trying to fix it. I feel better about how it looks but would still appreciate any tips.

Pretty good updates, just a few notes:

Also, be sure to consider your light direction; your shadow placement seems largely arbitrary right now.

Thank you! This helps a lot. I'll be sure to keep these factors in mind on the next painting, too.
