Should i really find a circular object for the funnels exercise

12:51 PM, Saturday April 6th 2024

As i am doing the funnels in my pool of warm ups it isn't hard for me to pick it up but it can like dish plate. also the ink of the pen might affect to the dinner plate and i dont have a curved ruler ( atleast not a big enough one ) but drawing an arch for the funnels isn't that hard for me i am very experienced at drawing curves by the way. so do i really have to find an object to help me of can i just do it freehand

As the instructions in the exercise say, alternatively you can find a round object, but the goal is not to practice our freehand curves. You'll get a consistent result out of using a curved object and that will make it easier to place the straight lines, but ultimately it's up to you. For what it's worth, fineliner ink is generally water-based and will wash off a plate if you do somehow manage to get it on there.

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
