Hi there! I am posting my drawing from the Let's draw course. First, I am posting the landscape erasing drawing. I think the shading looks weird, I am not sure what am I doing wrong.

*edit* I uploaded the picture correctly. Thank you Val :)

Veronique,

Welcome to Paint Basket.

You'll catch on to the posting procedure in no time.  The feedback you will get from the members is so valuable.

I did check out your drawing and it is a good first attempt.  You will be amazed at what you can do by the time you get through a few lessons.  Stick with it.  It is so worth it.

Indeed! It encourages me to post more. I am wondering if I pressed a little bit too hard or didn't do the smudging correctly.

 :welcome: you did a good job on your first class. Keep going. I remember when I did that one, I did it a few times until I became more comfortable and moved on. It is all in the wrist movement. You will get it!

Before you know if you will be amazed at what you can do, really!!  :clap: :clap:

 :bigwelcome: I'm so glad you've joined us, Veronique. You have a good start with the first drawing. It's fun to learn the techniques. Who would have thought you could do shading with an eraser!

I think you've done a fabulous job of getting your different tones between light and dark.  :clap: Just wait until you see what you will be learning in the next few lessons.  Each one prepares you for the next step.  You are on an exciting journey.  I look forward to watching you grow.   ;)

:bigwelcome: to the Paint Basket Veronique

You are off to a great start :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Just be careful of the verticals, I see yours are gradually sloping - I find that turning my page so it lies at an angle instead of square with the table solves the problem, so try that next time O0

Thank you! I should pay more attention at the verticals you are right. Also, how did you manage to do the shading more accurately in your drawing? Smudging the white portion with a q-tip didn't help me much

the big secret is to vary your pencil pressure - you will learn all about that and changing to hard and softer pencil as you progress in the course

 :D Your shading of the ball is good, Veronique. I'd like to suggest that you do another ball and work from very dark to very light. That will give you a lot of contrast and dimension. I believe that is the pencil pressure and variation that Nolan was referring to in his previous comment. Have fun with it and play with the possibilities.  :yippee:

Now I can see it! :yippee:

Very nice for a first attempt. Congrats! :clap::clap:

As Kathy said, you need to get more variations in tone. Just watch Nolan's lesson again and follow his instructions. He'll never steer you wrong. :)
