Lesson 2: Contour Lines, Texture and Construction
2:35 AM, Tuesday April 19th 2022
Holy moly; finished with lesson 2 and wow... What hard points it was (Which I know was mentioned in directions, but still).
First I want to talk about my lines in general. I don't belive now it's my arm, confidence, etc. I belive the problem is the surface I'm drawing on being bumpy and uneven. Before starting lesson 3 I'm getting a clipboard to act as a much smoother surface to see if that will help. Also I found at points changing pens from the one that was running out of ink to a fresh one really helped.
Although the arrows were a challange I really had fun and enjoyed myself.
The real strugle for me was textures and shadows. I felt really lost (And yes I know it was stated most aren't going to get it). Interescting forms I felt was second hardest.
The final hw, I can say looking at it with 95 percent certainty seems to be right.
Overall I'm just glad I got through all the hw's. I could have quit at any point, yet I kept going, trying my best. I'm sure lesson 3 and all others are even tougher, but at least I can finally start drawning things that aren't just shapes and lines. True, maybe what I do might come out as crap. Then again I know we're not making pretty drawings and maybe i just might surprise myself. I hope none of this violates any of the rules when posting my thoughts. If so, I apologize in advanced, and that it was never my intent.
