First still life ever

Postby nananikkiii » Fri Jun 27, 2014 11:21 pm

I am trying to teach myself and this is my first still life ever with absolutely no guidance.
I want to try another in the morning when I have gotten some tips.
Please be honest and tell me what I need to do to make it much better.

Hi, Nicole - you are off to a good start. Just keep looking at your subjects and practicing
until you get it just the way you want it. I wish I could be more of a help but we are small staffed and
do not have the resources to teach. Thank You, E

watch out for those ellipses. They don't have sharp corners, they are more rounded. Good luck! Drawing or painting something for the first time is always hard

I would say open up your range a bit with the shading, don't be afraid to go darker! Also, if you don't have one yet you should invest in a kneadable eraser. It will lift off graphite and allow you to make some highlights. I agree with the-magnetic-cat about needing to make the shapes rounder as well. As a whole your outline is pretty decent though, you just need to work at the shading more to bring it to life! Good job, keep it up :)

exactly. definitely adding some contrast to it would be great. and don't shy away from adding a little of a background whether that be just a simple horizontal gradated line behind the objects to represent the edge of a table or a wall or something- that would just add a little more depth and make the objects seem more grounded and not as if they are floating in the air. :) looks great so far though
