 :thankyou: Ta much Ray. I've a way to go before I get to your caliber, but I'm feeling more sure about it with each step.
Cheers, Val

Very nice work, Maryna :clap: :clap: :clap: Keep it up O0


My main worry is that you, as well as some others, have made the angle at the bottom of the cliff too steep.


 As a drawing on its own that is OK. But if you are copying a particular place then you must compare what you are drawing against that being drawn from.

I like them Val. I have just started finally. Might have to do the first round again. And again. And maybe again. These look great. You're getting a lot out of a B pencil. This is a great course so far. Just what I am needing. Are your pencils super sharp, or a bit rounded?

Nice Maryna! I'm finding it hard to let go and just sketch with abandon.

When I start, they are almost needle sharp. That only lasts for the first light go over, then I keep turning the pencil and that tends to keep it sharp enough to complete most of the drawing. I really don't exert much pressure on the pencil. Just layer it over, had to put a bit of pressure on to get the real darks at the end.
Cheers, Val

Thanks Val. Guess that is what I'm doing. Got it. Layers! It's all about the layers! And why can't a grown woman flick in a few blades of grass??? I can get through the rest and then just crumble when confronted with a few measly blades of grass.  :2funny:

I understand that! It's like I draw the eyes etc., add a few directional hairs....simple, right?   :pullhair: Might be easier to just glue a few of mine there instead!  :2funny:

Somehow missed this thread :confused:

Excellent trees - drawn with confidence.  :clap: :clap: :clap: In the second drawing just beef up the right hand tree to a mid value (Between the middle one and the left hand tree). This will add to the colour perspective as well as adding another plane for distance.


Looking forward to seeing the next section.
