Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Kristy - Well done for the first class .
Did you read the "Start here!" thread? We'd like to see a pre-class drawing, kinda benchmark for your progress.
When done, please move on to class 2

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

These are my exercises, the "spheres" look more 3D like with the cross hatching, I also tried the chair and my lantern using that shading technique but I can't make it look better than a sketch. -I even cross the limit lines- That's why I usually prefer to blend. I am left handed and it is easier for me to do the diagonal lines up to right, but the long ones are straighter than the short ones. It's difficult not to use the wrist in details. the underhand position is good for the long lines but the laid tip makes wide lines that lose definition and makes me try to "force the trace".
I chose the lantern because I can't draw and paint properly the highlights and appearence of glass (a real challenge), but with cross hatching I don't know how to give that effect.

Thank you for your advices and please excuse my English.

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Andrés - Well done .
Be assured that both "underhand" and "writing" positions are useful: underhand for loose flowing lines, and writing for careful details. As to the direction of the strokes, there is often some misunderstanding on the purpose of this exercise: it is meant to learn your best direction, so that you can turn the paper to get the best results . Drawing realistic textures without blending is done by laying many layers of gentle (cross-)hatching, very closely.
Good job in this class, please move on to class 2 .

Getting used to changing the way I hold my pencil, I hope to get looser as time goes on!

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Thank you Arnoud for your advice. and yes, I must be patient when looking for the specific darkness in the shadows and avoid excess pressure on the pencil. -close lines and gentle trace-.

The links weren't working on my work PC and my computer is down at my house. I'm doing this on my smartphone. Sorry for the problem!

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Well, the links are simply not working, return with a "Page not found" error.
Is this from a private environment of yours, where you need a login? (could be transparent (cookies!), so that you no longer realize it)
