When I try so hard to use pastel to create the wrinkles on the T shirt, the Illustion of wrinkle just can not appear. Only when I use black and white pastels to draw, the wrinkle can appear. When I use any other color to draw the wrinkle, the wrinkle just can not appear. I know the light color protrude while the dark color recess, so I tried lots of light color with dark color patel to draw the wrinkle, the wrinkle just can not appear. Finally I use black and white pastels to draw, the wrinkle appear. I wonder why when I use other color pastels I failed to draw the wrinkels.

Wrinkles are very difficult.  I don't know how to help you, except to say, practice, practice, practice.  After a while, a long, long, while, you will get better at it.  I still have problems with wrinkles in clothing and even wrinkles in skin.  But, when you get it right, it is exhilarating!  :)
