I went with the pear for this lesson, and I threw in an apple too for good measure. I enjoyed the practice, and I'll be doing more studies like this going forward. I have a lot to learn from simplifying the shapes and values. Thanks, Stan!
Jumping the gun. was an industry pro for a while then left to do something else…. Skills have atrophied….too much. Here is an attempt at the intermediate image… looking at it, it’s not much of a value study, more of a shaded drawing… Thoughts? hoping to get back into fighting trim. Looking forward to working with you all!
