Week 7 (10/17/2010 - 10/23/2010)

I can honestly say that I'm actually very excited about this week's post- were assigned to make a very large drawing of our shells, and I'm extremely pleased with the results! Pulling this off was extremely labor-intensive and required concentration and a lot of patience... a lot of patience. The only thing that I overstepped the boundaries slightly as far as criteria were concerned was in how much foreshortening my drawing included- too much apparently, but it still worked out great in the end, especially since I made the closer lines darker and further ones lighter. I've noticed lately that, ironically, the less control I give myself over each individual line the more interest I create within each, which is an issue that a lot of other people still seem to struggle with. Since this is just the first of five shell drawings we're going to do, I can't wait to see how the next ones are going to go!

  1. I really enjoy the clean lines in your shell drawing as well as the variation in weight. It is very easy to tell what is happening in the top region of the shell, however I didn't even notice the "tail" that goes back in space because it is so light and un-detailed in comparison. But it is a beautiful drawing, nice work!
