I don’t know if it was the sudden decrease in temperature, the rain, my inability to sleep last night, a combination, or something else entirely, but I felt like crap this morning.
Anyway. I think I’ve finished my working outlines as required by the Artisan Guild study program. I want to give them another read before I send them in tonight. I hope they’re acceptable. I’ve decided to focus on drawing as my second medium. My explanation is in my drawing outline which I will post once I’m happy with it. Anyway, I’ve been drawing on and off for years. It’s been awhile so I’m really rusty. Here’s what I’ve been toying with. * Excuse the fact that they are web cam photos rather than scans. I couldn’t be bothered to get the scanner connected to my computer for these. **
This is my teacup from yesterday morning’s breakfast. I did some shading today after I realized, to my horror, that I put the cup in the sink before I was finished with the lighting. So… it’s a little wonky and you can tell I’ve not been shading for a long time. My husband (bless his honesty) pointed out that the proportions and/or the perspective is a little off. I knew there was something off but it took a second pair of eyes to really help me figure out what it was.
Here’s my husband’s Xbox controller. This was challenging because of all the curves. I don’t think I’ve ever drawn anything like it so it was a fun practice. Again, things don’t seem quite right but I’m still proud of what I was able to accomplish!
* Please don’t laugh. I’m getting back into the groove of a hobby I was never very good at to begin with! 😛
