 :thankyou: Kathy!  I have been playing with the Pigment app too.  Sometimes the dailies have things I enjoy coloring and shading.  I understand about using real pencil and paper.  It is more satisfying. 

One thing you might want to try is Apple's Notes app.  I think it is installed by default.  Start a note, then hit the squiggle line to go into drawing mode.  The pencil is nice and shades well when you tilt it.  You may be able to get a good feel for it there.

fantastic hatching on the second version of the cup - so again you have learned not to stop too soon with the contrasts :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

PS - that cup is absolutely terrible for this exercise - as the teacher I am obliged to confiscate it so I can use it for myself >:D :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

 :thankyou:   Thank you, Nolan.  Perhaps the lesson will sink in this time.   :doh:   When I see how much better it looks after adding more contrast and tone, I cannot believe I thought the first version was done.


Hey, now!  Hands off my cup!  LOL! :2funny:

Mysti the cross hatched cup looks great! It amazes me how well you can do the digital. And yes, good plan on not going ahead with the tea cup you were drinking from  ;D

 :thankyou:  Mez and Patricia!  I am finding I have a lot more time to do the digital work than I do for paper and pencil.  I am still sketching the cup on paper, but am a good bit done with the teddy bear digital.

Thanks Mysti, I'll give the Notes app a try.  ;)

I think I could still go darker in some spots, but the instructions said use HB so that makes it a little lighter for all but the head.  I used 2B on the head before catching that HB instruction.  This is my first comepletely free hand drawing, so some things are not shaped right like the left side of his head is too big.  Nolan said to try seeing the planes before looking at his, and there are a lot of places I did them different.

Mysti, I think he's kind of cute.  Maybe he has the mumps!

Even for first-time free hand, it's still really good.

your plane lines can different to mine and you can still get the same result O0

The use only HB instruction is to get you used to using different hatches instead of relying on the softness of the pencil. The reason for this is that it then opens the door for you to start with pen and ink drawing.

You can however use different pencil to get darker hatches if you feel you understand the concept of hatching closer and further apart to get different tonal values O0
