Lesson 3: Applying Construction to Plants
11:59 PM, Wednesday December 29th 2021
I didn't use space on the paper too effectively, so I stretched the plant constructions to 10 pages.
Also, I have some questions about textures. As far as I understand it, textures should have almost a pattern to it, even if it isn't very straightforward like bricks or a net. My approach was to get the "general sense or flow" of the reference and draw that out before adding the smaller shadows, (idk if that makes sense). Like drawing all of the big, important ridge shadows of the fried chicken first, so you can kinda "tell" the flow of it, then going back and including smaller shadows. I included the first two slots of my texture challenge and one of the leaves in my plant construction has a texture. I know it's not construction but I am having some trouble grasping textures.
Oh, and I'm still using sharpie fine points, I couldn't find any decent fineliners. Are they still ok to use, or should I hop online for fineliners?
