Critique - Simplify Pear from Observation
Mark as Completed
Coffee Critique Time: These critique videos a r e l o n g . But I'm finding them valuable. So, every morning I watch a bit of the video until my morning coffee is gone. And then I start my day. Thanks Stan.
Sorry it's no longer a pear. What do you think cause I like it huhu. It's messy. It's something that I struggle with for as long as I remember!! More feedback is helpful. Thank youuuuu
Here's my attempt After Stan's demo, chose another ref so i'm not tempted to copy his ! I'm not used to use pencils, my strokes look horrible lmao :'( Any feedback is welcome ! :) Thank you
After watching the critique, I wanted to do a more loose form based approach (on a different pear), to see if I could internalize what Proko was talking about near the end. I think my darker midtones are still a bit lost, but the form approach seemed to help me think more about flow lines and let me be a bit more interpretive.
When doing this was anyone else having the issue of making 2B and 4B shading more distinguishable from each other? I was finding that the 6B was significantly darker than the 4B after multiple passes with both, but it seemed like the contrast between them was significantly greater than the contrast of 2B and 4B.
Here are my first attempt, made before watching the demo and critique videos, and my second attempt, made after watching both. There are still some things I'd change, but overall I'd say it's way better!
Hey everyone! Enjoyed doing this. Any crits would be great! Also wondering how to avoide smudging all over the place while drawing? Tyia!
Final pear I did on my own after watching the critiques tried to improve my pencil work to make it less messy and I also tried to make sure the values contrasted well, i think the fourth and fifth lightest values might still be too close but I improved a lot off my other attempts and the shape of the pear I think looks much better this time and closer to the photo !
Did a second attempt with the project. Since this was my second one (and I saw some other people doing digital), I thought I'd have fun and do an ink wash for the actual shading instead of graphite. I still am going too tall with my proportions--though this one was not nearly as badly tall as my first one :)
Fourth Attempts (after force me to finish half the video), Don't know whether this one is better or worse, I like this pear I draw. (purple one is the second attempts I draw earlier that I rush through with no patient) And I realized I used 6 color, and I reupload the 5 color version
Drawing Basics - PEAR • attempt #2 after watching Stan’s demo, I think it looks better than my first one
Drawing Basics - MAN • attempt #2 after watching Stan’s demo, still had a hard time distinguishing what to simplify
