Drawing Exercises + Practice

Drawing Exercises + Practice - student project

Below are some of the drawings I worked on. I normally use Illustrator ( I don't have Procreate, sadly) so I challenged myself to go old school with a pencil! And pen and a bit of marker.

 

Shapes Drawing

PEONY

So many learnings from this one! I definitely bit off more than I could chew but I toughed it out nonetheless. This is one of the beauties my friend dropped at my doorstep yesterday. How could I resist! One thing I didn't account for was that the petals were moving ... right before my eyes!!!

When I started drawing it in loose shapes it looked like the left photo. I put my head down for a couple of minutes ... looked back up ... and could not figure out why my lines didn't match up anymore! Thankfully, I took a picture to work from! Cheeky peony!
