Re: Basic 101: Class 5 - Drawing Spherical Objects

Hello Arnaud!


I can't believe that the summer is coming to a close. Here is what I have been working on since August 1. Just in case you were wondering, I am not yet using a tripod but a contraption my husband thought of so that I am not holding the phone's camera and it is steady. All were photographed using natural daylight, the drawing on the ground facing upwards.

I have completed the egg, teacup, and nut (I used an acorn I had in my still life box) exercises. They were all drawn from life. I really like how they came out. The intensity of the dark values comes from me working in a dimly-lit space (living room with the light off) as I am watching tv. I just really like the look of it, but I do want to lighten my values a touch on a few exercises going forward.

The glass teacup is made out of teal-colored cut glass. The cuts are in a chevron pattern. I am proud of the outcome of the teacup because it was pretty difficult and the first time I had tackled glass in drawing. I am sure it could be much better but was my best effort at the time. I am, after several weeks, noticing that the darkest values on the rim of the teacup is a little off. I did use perspective to correct my initial sketch. I am still having trouble keeping the perspective's corrections when I am adding value to the outline.

The pinecone was done from a photo only because you are not supposed to remove organic items from national parks










A different view of the teacup:







Another view of the pinecone drawing. I feel that, unfortunately, both are showing up on my laptop much lighter/a little grainier than the original photo. I am hoping it is looking a little smoother on your PC, Arnaud:






For my next exercise for this module, I know that we are all supposed to do the M & M dispenser reference as a group project. However, is there anything else that I may do as a drawing instead? My reason is that I am not a big fan of the object and I know I will just procrastinate drawing it as a result. I will draw the dispenser if you really wish me to.

I hope that you had a great summer Arnaud! thank you for reviewing my submitted homework pieces.

Re: Basic 101: Class 5 - Drawing Spherical Objects

Well done, Sahar
The forms are well done. Your drawings are rather timid, you seems to be afraid of the dark. My suggestion is to apply the graphite boldly in the darks.
You finished the basic lessons, you may move on to any class of your liking, in any order.
