Outline the space of the duck wasn't hard at all. I found it effortlessly easy to do so with such a simple shape. It took me about 2-5 minutes to actually finish it and outline it with marker. I felt at ease when drawing this.
After drawing the outline of the duck, I had to draw the duck. this was easy too, all it was was the same shape with some circles and a couple of lines. This made me realize how easy it is to draw when you know the shapes and components of the thing you want to draw.
Lines of symmetry! It was pretty fun doing. Though at times I dread doing it, it's something everyone needs to know how to do. How to draw the reflecting image so things are the same sizes on both halves is mandatory. That's kind is step 2 of art.
This had me for a bit of time. It didn't take long, but it wasn't as short as I thought it should have been. I had to make sure both sides was the same size with everything. If it wasn't, it would have messed up the picture as a whole. Since it was symmetry and delusion, it had to be right to make you think, "Is it 2 faces, or a vase?"
With this one I had to draw without looking at the paper. I had to focus on the object I was looking at only. I was surprise how close I was to having the bottle I drew right. I'm not good with not looking at the paper nor memorizing how something specific looks so this was a nice challenge for me to do.
Lines and shading was the name of the game for this one. I had to see the comparison between shade and well, not shad. xD (The light parts) Also I had to draw straight lines without a ruler. Being able to draw lines free handedly is something that comes in handy for sure. This lesson was simple, but important.
I had to use what I learned with the free handed lines and the shading in my gremlin drawling. I liked that it was something new and that I was actually drawing something at this point. This also used the symmetry rule as well since one side had to look exactly like the other side. I liked how all the components that I had to use in the previous drawings were applied to this slightly advanced drawing.
I had to draw a puppy. I wish they had me give the dog some eyeballs. He kind of looks weird. I mean, a dog without eyeballs? Anywho, drawing this wasn't hard either, I just didn't like the fact that the dog had to look like it was sick.
NEGATIVE SPACE~. I had to not draw the actual chair, but the negative space around the chair. So I shaded everything around the chair instead of drawing the outline of the chair itself since, I mean that was what was asked of me. For me negative space is kind of difficult to wrap my head around, but I try to work with it.
Everyone loves horses right? I liked drawing the horse, but I hate drawing animals. I should probably say that I don't like drawing real things(?). I enjoy drawing cartoons/anime so drawing things out of my comfort zone is a little bit more challenging in my perceptive.
I had to draw myself. I didn't like it at all. I hate drawing people because I know I'm not good with it at all. The fact that it turned out pretty well made me a little proud of myself. I took my time with this one so I think my effort in it came out greatly.
How to draw shapes and used them to our advantage was the name of the game. It was a simple drawling to do really. I mean, it was sort of the starter course of what the other lessons were going to be about. I guess it was trying to show me how often shapes and curvy lines are used in drawings.
I had to draw a kola. I don't really like kolas so I thought this drawing looked ugly. I didn't like it at all. I mean it looked similar to a kola I guess but I just don't like how they look in general. It didn't take long to draw, but I didn't enjoy it as much as some other ones.
Leo the lion. This was more cartoonish than real so it was MUCH easier to draw it compared to the horse. I thought it was pretty cute as a picture. It was really simple to do, just some circles, ovals, triangles, and some straight lines and BAM! A leo the lion.
Finally speaking my language, ANIME. I actually didn't like drawing this one at all. It was ugly. Anime doesn't look as bad as they portrayed it which made me angry I had to draw this joke. I'd appreciated if they put some actual effort into the anime parts like they did everything else. If they could draw amazing irl things, why couldn't they draw a simple anime face correctly? (Just a little rant. #otaku)
Again. I hated that I had to draw part 2 of this "anime". It looked ugly. Even the old 1980 animes weren't as horrible or ugly as the ones they used. They need to improve greatly on these. >:( This was simple to draw as well and it wasn't exciting to do.
I drew this fish sexy. (LOL) I know I messed it up, but I kept it the way I drew it anyway. I liked the way I drew my fish better so I didn't throw it away like I usually do with other drawings that come out wrong. I had to give myself a pat on the back with the attractive looking fish.
UNDER THE SEA. The under water creatures continues with a starfish. To be honest, I rushed this one because I didn't really want to draw it. Also, the fact that it had all these extra little details made me rush through it even more. But hey, it got done~ and not to bad if I do say so myself.
It lives in the water…well, I'm pretty sure gators live in the water and crocs live on land. Anyway, I had to draw it. That as well looked dumb to be honest. -3- The lessons started to get a bit boring. Guess the theme was "Things that live in the water."
A little mer-boy. That was ugly too. Based on my comments it would seem I didn't enjoy drawing these things, and it's true I didn't. They were childish to do. I mean they;re just ugly to me. A lot of them are. I don't know how to describe it other than they are ugly little cartoons. They didn't really put effort into those either. Well to me they didn't. :/ But I guess it's to help others get better with drawing in general.
Flowers…or tulips. One of the two, I can't really remember. This was just knowing the different shades in pencils and what not. Like 2h is pretty light while 8B is the darkest type of pencil to use before you start using charcoal. (To me) it's literally the darkest pencil shade before they hop into charcoal sticks.
SQUIRKLES!!! I like doing squirkles, well, I like saying it. They're pretty cool to do. It's another way of shading! I would have never thought of doing that. You learn something new every day it seems.
Lightest to darkest squirrels. The light tones compared to the dark tones. I like the little ombre effect that is given when you do do the light to dark. And SQUIRKLES. Um, this wasn't like a "draw this" it was more of a secret to keep with you. A little mini lesson to go. I really liked learning about this.
I LOVE DOING EYES! And the fact that I could apply the squirkle rule with the dark to light ratio of shading made it even more interesting. I never knew I could do that. My eye looked so cool! They blended really well.
When actually applying squirkles to cartoon things again… it made me dislike it a bit. (xD) In all seriousness though, it wasn't that bad. I really did have a blast with these pictures. They didn't take as long as I thought they were. They seem like the were but the thing with squirkles is that you can go at a really fast pace and have it still look professional.
I had to apply squirkle shading to a cartoon face. I thought I would do bad with this one but again, it came out pretty good. I wasn't always good with drawing a character and making sure people knew it was black. (In other words, my shading always looked bad and the skin complexion was never right in my eye.) But doing this has showed me all it takes is a little practice.
Squirkling with trees. This was REALLY easy. I felt like I was just scribbling all over the place and it somehow made a tree. I can stress enough how much fun Iw as having with lesson D. :3
My blended in blob of squirkles. The blob looked dumb, but the shading looked pretty good. I didn't really like doing this one cause it sort of sucked the fun out of the other things but I got by. What can I say? I expect a lot of drawing. I like doing it but I don't like being forced to draw ugly things because then I most likely won't take it as seriously as other things. (This I know for a fact.)
I had to make a 3-D effect of the fruit by using squirkles. I didn't like doing this because I think I did it wrong. It didn't come out right in my eye. :/ It doesn't look like it has a 3-D feel about it. So even though I did it, I feel like it's wrong… like a math problem.
The view of PERCEPTION. I liked doing the little cute faces with the squiggly balls. It didn't take too long, but it felt like it did. I thought I did pretty good with this picture too. It looked like they were about to come right out of it.
The vallies and the mountains. Sometimes, they are the most easiest things one can do and yet still not have mastered. This wasn't bad at all. All I had to do was draw some mountains and do the thing I like doing the most, SQUIRKLES!
The VANISHING point! All i had to do was put a vanishing point and then draw what ever I wanted to draw away from it. Then, I had to connect the pieces to from the vanishing point to the thing I wanted to draw. Since that sounds so complicated, I did the easiest thing possible. A box.
Vases and vases. 2 different vases to make them look more realistic. For this one all I had to do was…draw. This one was the easiest thing to draw. All it was was… vases. I don't know what else to really say about this one.
Different shades of pencils. All I had to do was practice and see if I could master the light to dark ratio in general. Pretty simple for this one. Nothing really new in this lesson, at least not yet.
More mountains! I had to draw them and then shade them if 4 different shades. This wasn't to hard to do either. Just more lessons on shading and the different kind pencils you can use to achieve the shades.
There were like 12 different pencils I needed to do this one and I didn't have 12 so I had to improvise. I mean it worked out in the long run but, I didn't like it. I took a lot of time out of my hands drawing then shading in everyone of them. I kind of rushed it cause I started to get bored with it after a while.
Light to dark in wavy lines. This was just like #23 in a way. Nothing really new with the light to dark. You can only do so many until it starts to get, well, boring.
KOBRAAAAA. Pretty sure he's in G.I. Joe. I used to love that show. The remake of the cartoon, not the original one. :/ He literally never won but I still liked the remake more because that's what I grew up on(?) Anyway, this was kind of cool to draw. He had a lot of shading to do but, it was cool to do for the most part.
Combo of squirkles and dashes. Different shading techniques to make something look more completed I guess. I didn't like how it looked but I liked that it switched up the shading stuff.
Another 3-D with dashes/curves. I don't really like it because I think I did this one wrong too but, I think I did it better then the other one. It could have been better in my taste but 3-D is like on another level for me. (Cry)
Still light to dark ratio things. :/ It was no point to this one but I guess they thought it was needed after about 3 of them. It was there. That's it really about this drawing.
A cool little scenery. I liked it a lot. It didn't take too much work to make it look cool. Even though this is true, I still drew it wrong. ( to me at least)
I LOVED THIS ONE! I think this was the best one I drew in a long time. Well, not in a long time but out of all the drawings drew this one was the best to me. It wasn't a time consuming thing but it still came out great.
An amazing looking tulip with great shading. (Being too cocky) I messed this one up too to be honest. It's pretty good. Not bad if I do say so myself. I liked drawing this little picture so it was pretty quick to do.
I didn't like the seahorse. It was ugly to me. I know I didn't draw it correctly. It looks similar but I know where the flaws are.
Light on a mug is what I had to draw. It wasn't hard with this either but I mean, it wasn't exciting. It was really simple to do. Just the same old guide to shading.
SPOONS SPOONS SPOONS. A cool looking spoon with some shade on it. It's pretty cool. I liked the little circles on the handle part. This was pretty fun to do.
This one was weird. I got it done in the end and it wasn't hard but it looked funny. A bit intimidating but all well's that ends well. I did the lines and what not but I don't think it looks right. And that's the end of that chapter.
