Weekly Graphite love topics!

We also have a weekly topic with a reference photograph for group activity. Go ahead and take up the challenge. The objective of these ref. images is to study the following aspects of the image :-

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WHAT TO STUDY --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Texture : to study different types of texture and the variation of how it reflects light

Tonal value : helps you understand depth, and what causes it.

Form, shape & composition : The most important of all !Though the image is set in a boundary, feel free you crop it in your drawing if you want to alter the composition.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- WHAT TO SUBMIT --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The final drawing may be submitted as any one of the following or all of the following :)

A line drawing : A line which showcases weight in it and reflect the above 3 aspects of the topic.

A tonal study : A quick tonal study, or a detailed tonal study

A hyper-realistic rendering : Bravo to anyone who does this :)


Please post your study of the topic as a comment under that Discussion only. Otherwise it will be deleted.
