Drawing #32


what's this? I'm trying my best to fit drawing in everyday. I'd joined the Everyday Matters group a while ago. If you're not familiar, check out the Everyday Matters blog.But it was hard to keep up. I'm going to do my best this time. We'll see how it goes. There is a list of items to draw to as a challenge. (And we all know how I like a list. )

So here's my first drawing. Probably not the smartest choice - drawing something metallic but I had out my Quickutz Zoe font on Sunday to make that card. The tin was still sitting out on my drawing table yesterday and there you are. The drawing has a few problems. I could sit here and pick it apart but you have eyes, right? LOL All in all, however, I'm pleased. I haven't been drawing in this manner for a while. I posted that drawing I'd done a while back (see my Picnic post and it made me want to get back to this level of my drawing. Ok.

EXCELLENT!! Shading is well done too!

Michael Emerald said...

Looks good to me. What problems are there? The shading is fine, the lines are delicate. If anything, maybe the perspective could be a bit stronger. What do you think?

June Houck said...

Wow! You are so good. I can barely draw stick people.

I understand being hard on yourself but you have NOTHING to worry about. The shading is great and the drawing looks excellant.

Well it looks like a very well drawn shiny metal tin to me! We're all our own worst critics, so be gentle on yourself (I'll just tell you what to do ;-)) Nice to have you fully participating in EDM

I checked out the picnic post you mentioned and that quilt is fantastic! I agree with you - I like it "unfinished". You have a great style and I look forward to seeing more of it.

Looks shiny to me! I wish I could draw shiny- or even harder- glass! I stick to stick people and fuzzy, cotton-tail bunnies ;)
