Cup v1.0

This is the cup that I told you about earlier. I drew this in about thirty minutes while I was waiting for my little brother at his guitar class. I like it, but here are a couple of things I noted for v2.0 (you can see some notes in french on the right):

  • Rework the handle; you can see that I tried to do that, but in the end it made it look even worse
  • Use better shading; I hadn’t read the chapters on shading yet, so I sort of colored the cup to do the shades. Next time, use crosshatching
  • Try to make the shading more graduate, smoother

Well, I hope to do better next time. Actually, I think I know I will do better. Hope to post that new cup soon!

New category: drawing

As some of you are aware, I have started a new hobby recently: drawing. Who woulda thunk that the guy, who’d rather claim his 7th great-great-grandmother had died the day before in 8th grade to get out of art class, would some day become interested in drawing, eh?

In any case, I have added a new category to this blog to bore you all with my progress and thoughts on drawing. I am going to get a little scanner so I can post things I’ve sketched. This weekend for instance, I drew a coffee cup that I think isn’t so bad. Of course, I noted a few things I should work on: using crosshatching instead of hatching for shading, reworking the handle, etc. I’ll post it this week is I have the scanner.
