Still life post

When i first started this drawing i was very nervous. I’ve never done a still life drawing before. I kept thinking that i was going way too fast for the outline. over time i thought it looked better. Doing the background was very tough.  The shading on this was very hard. The color of the sheet in the back was difficult for me to get. I believe that this was a decent drawing. I feel now that if i do this again, i will have more experience for still life.  I thought that throughout the days i learned more and more correct angles and techniques for shading. I think i could have improved on the shading and the background. I possibly could have also improved on some angles and shapes and the reflecting from the lights above.  I liked all the things together, it was a great challenge to get all the items put together right

Blind Contour Activity log

 

                When I first started drawing, I thought to myself, “man this is going to be horrible, how am I going to do this?” Well I was right it was horrible and it was a very difficult assignment, but I enjoyed it and the project really showed me I need to be in this class a lot longer before I go to Drawing.  When I finished the project, I thought, “Wow, the pictures continuously got worse”. I looked at the “Blind Contour 3” and saw that my eyes were by my mouth.  I looked at the second one; it was a little better, still horrible, but better. The head shape was better than the third. I stopped looking after  the second, it was too bad to look at. I felt hysterical; it was so bad I laughed.  Hopefully the next time I do this project, it will be a lot better.
