This style of zentangle reminded me of the coloring sheets my mom made for me and I made for my girls. If someone asked for something to color, draw a continuous line and then color in all the spots. I have been reminded that I enjoy filling them in with color more than line patterns. I don't have the patience. lol
And next my pear. I'm adding my reference photo so you can see the intent of the shading. I don't like my highlight...
I'm going to just keep updating this til I finish it!
banana: I struggled with this because there didn't seem to be a lot of shade differences other than a tiny bit near the stem and the cast shadow.
Oh my gosh! I actually drew a recognizable human face!
I need to do this one again... the shape isn't quite right and I messed up the shadow and I don't have the best eraser yet and it didn't come off cleanly. But, it's a final project!
A second attempt with some advice from someone on a FB group as well.
And then a few things tweaked as per more advice (that went beyond what you were teaching at this level I think) about darkening the bottom and I tried to curve the top highlights to the shape of the vase. Phew, I'm done with this vase for now!
