Linley,

Definitely getting better.  One tip is to gradually fade out the value so that you do not have rigid black lines, like at the edge of the fins.

Otherwise, great job.

 :thankyou:   Thank you, Teresa!  I try to practice some every day.


 :thankyou:  Thank you, mea!  I was trying to do a small shadow to show separation of the fins and it looks like I wound up going too far with it. 


 :thankyou:   Thank you, Nolan!  It does look rounder.


I really appreciate the feedback from everyone.  I learn something new every time.   :smitten:

I finished my barn drawing.  It is by hand instead of traced, so the perspective is off a bit.  I really enjoyed drawing all the shingles.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Mysti apart from the perspective being a bit off, your shading is excellent and the fact that you drew it by hand instead of tracing, is really something.  Good job.

Mysti,

Yes, the shingles really look good.  I like that added touch.

Hey, no worries about the slanting walls, I see many buildings like that here in the Oahu countryside.

Great go for freehanding Mysti! I also tried freehanding this lesson. Good on you.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

If the verticals were straight you would have a much 'younger' barn...rather like people, which would be me  :whistle: . In younger years I was straight, slim, and quite well put together if I do say so myself  ;)    As I (as with your barn) age, the foundation tends to slip a bit, spread a little, our shape changes and we gain "character" !!!  Your barn and I have much in common...we both have great character!  O0    :2funny:
Cheers, Val

great drawing with good textures :clap: :clap: :clap:

Just be careful when drawing verticals - despite perspective changing things, verticals always remain vertical regardless of where you view them from

Thank you, Nolan!  I see the front lines would be better if truly vertical.  The whole thing would look a lot better if those lines and the fence were in properly.  The textures on the barn were very interesting to draw, as was the shading on the fake side door and front window to show depth inside.  I also realized the lines on the top of the open door should be at a much sharper angle as the wood doesn’t look long enough to cover the hole.  Lots to nitpick on this one, but it was very enjoyable.

sadly after every artwork we complete we will find things to nitpick about.

I always leave it a day for my head to clear, then decide if any of those are critical and fix them / remember them for next time. If they are not critical I don't worry about it O0
