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.

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
