Crumpled Paper Texture

1:35 AM, Monday April 20th 2020

The first texture in the texture analysis is supposed to be crumpled paper ( not sure it is always followed or still the rule ). Anyway.

I am doing this and obviously finding it challenging when using a fineliner which is either on or off when much of the image is midtoned.

Any idea whether cross hatching is allowed or is it just a combination of black and white that is required.

No cross hatching unless the texture really looks like that (which you'll find crumbled paper does not). The point of the assignment is that challenge that you only have black and white to work with and you have to determine the shapes of the shadows. Maybe take a look at some other submissions to see how people tackled the problem.

I had a look at recent ones but nobody was doing crumpled paper for the first one. Even the example one in the exercise didn't.

But thanks for the response, I assumed this was the case but wanted to check.

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
