Hello everyone! This is my first attempt of the pear. In this assignment I specifically used 4 different pencils for different values to avoid pressing too hard on the paper, which I tend to do without noticing. When I finished the pear, I didn't know what to do with the shadow on the surface, so I left it blank. In retrospective, I should have made my dark shadow on the pear a bit lighter so I would have some room for the darkest shadow on the surface like so many of you did. That's definitely something I will try to do next time. I also found that my woodless graphite pencils is a bit darker than my wooden ones. I don't know if it's normal because they're very cheap. But this assignment does make me more familiar with the tools I have so I can make the best use of them.
