Day 9’s challenge was to look at images of some man-made, mechanical objects that were provided as reference and then draw out one of them as precisely as possible. No tracing was allowed, and we were free to apply some amount of creative license in our approach. The objective is to be realistic, but not photo-realistic.
I procrastinated over this challenge for several days because I knew it would require a lot of effort. Even after I finally started, I spread the task over several days. I’d chosen to draw a pair of headphones.
This is my final drawing.
It may not look like it, but it took me a couple of hours just to get the basic sketch right. I don’t have a particularly steady hand so drawing ovals and circles are a problem. Even if I got the pencil version right, I messed up at a few spots while inking it in. Also, I don’t I got the angles right at some places.
But I’m happy to say that I seem to have made some progress in drawing shadows and highlights.
What do you think? Do you see some improvement in my shading?
