    Yet another one done with the contour technique. I'm halfway there!

    You've inspired me to do more still life myself. Perhaps that is what I felt was lacking recently.

    Good luck with your challenge though.

    Looking pretty epic
    I think I'll go on a 100 still life marathon too. Doesn't seem that impossible and sounds fun
    Keep it up! I'm still gonna stalk your sketchbook no matter what xD

    And are you doing these on A3 or A4 paper?

    @ PT Abram: Thanks! From what I have heard and read, life drawing definitely seems important. However you include it, I hope you find it useful!

    @ Kaioken20XGoku: Epic...eh, I don't know about that. That's awesome that I've inspired you though! Personally, this "marathon" is taking much longer than I thought, and isn't exactly thrilling anymore, but I guess that's part of it? As for your question, I'm doing these on neither A3 nor A4, but rather US Letter since I live in the USA. I wouldn't think the paper size should be too important in this case nonetheless. It's too bad we missed the 100 Day Challenge on CA featuring still lifes! That could have been great for us!

    I apologize for the spotty scan...again.

    I think I've been getting a little (or a lot) carried away with this whole self-criticism thing, so I decided to limit the number of notes I made on these to 5 or 6.

    I have to say I was a little overwhelmed when I see you covering your page in criticisms - too much might not be good for you...Still, you've improved a whole lot since your first few, and you're more than half way there! Keep going!

    Do you enjoy doing these drawings by the way?

    My CA sketchbook- Please help with some critique!

    I think you should take a break and study some other stuff too like perspective/anatomy/composition and do some doodles/imaginative drawing. You'll get mechanical and bland lol if you do still lifes everyday like a routinely chore. You've honed your observation quite a bit so you can start moving a little forward

    Hi drag, joining the discussion I agree about "too much self criticism is not good for you". In addition I would say that (in my opinion) your drawing is way better than your caligraphy, think about it this way can help you get rid of this.
    Stop writing, keep drawing!

    @ Waze: Yeah. I don't really know how I started off with only a couple of notes on my first still life and ended up with the paper covered in them. I definitely went overboard on those. As for my enjoyment of these drawings, I have drifted back and forth. Sometimes they are quite laborious and drawn out while other times they are enjoyable and pleasant.

    @ Kaioken20XGoku: I will think about deviating from the "marathon" and working on something else. However, I'm over halfway in, and I don't want to stop now...but hey, we'll see.

    @ elvistking: Haha! I totally agree with you--My calligraphy is terrible, in more ways than one! Thanks for the advice about drawing more and writing less. Self criticism is important, but I took it a bit too far, and now have to tone it down.

    I saw Proko's video on Drawing Measuring Techniques today and decided to give it a try, since I've never really done any careful proportional measuring for these linear still lifes. The feel of mapping out the drawing was interesting, although it still turned out very off(mostly because I was too lazy to fix mistakes I noticed early on).

    Another rushed attempt at measuring proportions before drawing:

    Since the proportional version of visual measuring that Proko taught was giving me trouble, I decided to try implementing the sight-size method for my underdrawing, only I used a one-to-two ratio instead of a one-to-one, meaning I doubled my measurements each time so that my drawing would turn out double the size of what I saw, at least in theory. Anyway, I absolutely messed up the proportions even worse than before. Also, at some point during the drawing, I knocked over the items, and couldn't get the exact position that they started in. (Note to self: Do not put objects you intend to draw in precarious positions.) Ah well, I guess this is just one of my off days.

    So here is the unfortunate result result: *cringes*
