Thanks to everyone for your encouragement, it really helps!
I spent part of the weekend "Hatching". My cup, well... not so good but rather than redo I tried the pears, perhaps a little better. I re-watched and re-read the chapter on hatching and then went on to do the teddy bear
and he came out pretty well. Now that he is photographed I see a few issues I should fix. Hey these drawings look much different as photos I think I might have to photograph BEFORE I think that I am finished next time, you get a whole different perspective.
Best,
DeKay
I hope everyone had a great weekend.

 :congrats: Nice work ,Dekay. You really got the hang of cross hatching.   O0
Isn't it amazing how a flat outline takes on so much shape when you add you shading?

I completely agree with you about how much we can see when we take a photo.  Often, I will have a finished drawing only to snap a photo to post and then go back and make changes.  :doh:

Moving forward in my coursework, something is fishy.
Once again after the photo is up I see my top fin needs some work, back to the drawing board!
Best,

 :clap: Good morning Dekay.  Your goldfishy turned out very nice.  For a more translucent fin, how about softening the outline?  A soft flick at the ends of the darks in the fins would also soften.  That is just my personal observation. Each artist has their own take and style, I'm sure.  Your drawings are so lovely. I'm looking forward to the next one.  :clap:

DeKay,

It's good that you can recognize that the fish still needs work.  That is a great sign of progress.

KathyS's suggestion for the fins is good.

Actually, it won't take much tweaking to make this a super scumbled fish!

you are doing a great job so far Deb :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Berries - what you want to do is work on getting more contrast into the berry. Then each shading must smoothly transition from the one tonal value to the next. When one tonal value stops and the next starts, it indicates a corner

Rocks - awesome job

Teddy - looking great, good roundings

Fish - Here you have good contrasts and a nice scribble effect. You do however have the same problem as with the berries where the one tonal value stops and the next starts indicating a corner instead of a rounding. To fix it with the fish, gradually add less and less scribbles on the top right and bottom left of the fish as you move towards the inside of the fish O0

You are doing a great job, keep it up

I am going to go back to my last few drawings and make some improvements as suggested, I appreciate the input for sure. I worked on the barn today
I think it's just about done. It seems next week the course will take a turn, I can't wait! I am trying to upload this from my iPad hope it works because I can't preview for some reason.
Best,
DeKay

DeKay,

Really good work on the barn, especially that pesky window that gave me such trouble.

I can see improvement with each new drawing.
