Lesson 2: Contour Lines, Texture and Construction
1:39 PM, Tuesday July 20th 2021
This was terrible. First pictures were done in marker, and only later I was able to get a fineliner. My mistakes are numerous: wobbly lines, misaligned ellipses, terribly constructed boxes and more. But that I understand how to correct with practice. What I don't understand is textures. The Lesson 2 text stated that it's better to use cast shadows, but I tried to draw cast shadows of the crumpled paper texture and failed. So I tried to draw all shadows and failed again. My drawing doesn't even remotely resemble the textures I wanted to draw. The same is with textures in Dissections. I don't understand how to make them believable without drawing them explicitly.
So, I think I need to do the Texture exercises again. Everything else is uncomfortable but manageable.
