    Assignment #1
    I tried something simple, Still need alot of work to get metals done right.
    It was fun to do though. Not too happy with the electric shaver version though.
    Hard to freehand those curves lol.
    Comments and crits welcomed.

    Assignment#1:
    I think I screwed this one up badly. But when I'm finished with the next few assignments I'll try to do this one again.
    First time trying Photoshop CS2 for painting, guess I'll stick with Painter for now. I have to learn to do texturing in PS.

    *edit: Nice one Pixelfarmer. And I admit, perspective curves are hard to do freehand. Really nice concept though. It almost looks like a Formula1 racecar.
    I think I went too far in my concept.

    Wow guys, nice work! :-) You know how flattering it is to have people choose to do assignments you’ve dreamed up?

    Feel totally free to skip to whatever assignments you feel will help you the most. They aren’t in any particular order.

    They may not have thought to do such a thing. It’s acrylic matte medium, and in general there aren’t established formal methods to using acrylics the way that there are with oils, so it doesn’t surprise me that this specific approach isn’t widely used. And come to think of it, I started using it as a way to counteract my bad habit of dragging my hand across the pencil lines as I painted, which was rubbing the lines off. People who are less clumsy might not need such a trick. ;-)

    PixelFarmer – Nice clean lines and good perspective. I struggle with shiny metal textures myself. :-)

    spookeydonkey – What are you talking about; that’s not screwed up or “too far”! :-) The nose of the ship is a little crooked but overall it’s nicely done.

    Twitch – hello! Awesome stapler gun. The “stand clear” text is a nice touch. :-) Something that you can try, is when drawing shapes in perspective, draw the other side of the object in as well, lightly, as if the whole object is made of glass.

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    Hehe. thanks.. I've read this thread over and over in the past few days and I would really like to start taking each lesson step by step and work to better myself. I'm only 16 and have a lot to learn, and I believe that this can really help me do that. thanks for the work in putting this together.

    Thanks Seedling, I thought the assignment also said that it you had to leave some elements of your original object intact. And I obviously didn't do that. That's why i thought i went too far with it.

    Posting assignment#2:


    Hope this post won't screw up the layout.

    Okay here is what I did in an hour off and on since I was at work...shoosh don't tell.

    This was also done on my office scanner so please be nice...haha! In my opinion I only like my hand! I know we were suppose to update the object but I couldn't think of anything cool to change a ugly yellow Dickey's BBQ cup. Let me know what you guys think.

    You guys rock!

    Nikki – howdy! Good choice of object: cylinders are both difficult to draw well, and one of those basic shapes that every artist needs to learn how to draw. The tough part in getting the shape correct is getting the top and bottom ellipses correct. Notice how the bottom of your cup isn’t as curved as the top? It should actually be slightly more curved than the top. The hand is an amusing addition, by the way. :-) Don’t worry, I won’t tell on you for drawing at work!

    spookydonkey – Haha! I love it. That rotted bit at the side of the mouth takes the cake. Watch out for putting heavy dark lines around the eyes – it makes it look like you’re wearing eyeliner. :-) Overall, something that could help you would be to try drawing faces as if they are broken down into plains in space. That would help sort out some of the funky issues that are occurring – for instance, the skin under the nostril is lighter than the nostril, which makes the nose look squashed inward.

    Twitch, you’re welcome. I look forward to seeing more of what you do. :-)

    Thanks Seedling, I'll try to incorporate more curve to the cup. so basically make it more deminsional? (spell it wrong I'm sure) Just want to clarify the lingo...not so good with artist talk yet...haha!

    I should have done some shadowing on the actual cup now that I look at it and have a fresh mind. I hate when you look at something too long to tend to not see what should have been there in the first place.

    Thanks for your comment.

    Thanks Seedling! I'll keep those tips in mind, they really help! *doing assignment 3 now*
    The lines under my eyes we indeed too much, the ones above are actually (the only thing) that way. My eyelashes are kinda straight and don't curl up as I would like to. Plus I have alot of those lashes so when you look at my eyes at daylight it actually looks like i'm wearing eyeliner! The comment though was more than useful. :-)
    And yeah, I kinda do that a lot, leaving those white spaces white... I need to check my drawings more carefully.

    Spooky – Cool. :-) Try working on a neutral background. That way the white will only be where you put it.

    Nikki – Try drawing more cylindrical objects, and compare the curve of one end to the other when you do. You’ll pick up the art lingo as you go, or you can just do like me and say “thingy”.

    Seedling - haha! no kidding that's all I seem to be using 'thingy'. I've been having trouble working on assignment #2 since i really don't have a mirror aside from my bathroon to use and not a tall enough chair. I will have to see what I can do about borrowing one that sits up by itself.

    Might move onto Assignment #3 to keep moving down the list and practicing.

    Thanks for this again!

    Those are nice, Nat. Good job with the perspective on the sunglasses and sunglasses-creature, especially.

    Nikki – no worries, there’s no rule saying these assignments have to be in order. Heck, I don’t think anyone has tried out the most recent additions yet. If you want to be my guinea pig you could try some of those.

    @Mosh - do you have a sketchbook thread here? If not, you should start one and throw those in. The still-lifes look nice, but it would be awesome if we could get some better pics. Try to shoot them straight on, so the edges of the paper fit right inside your viewfinder on the camera.

    Assignment #1

    I'm new to this thread, I found it insightful and decided to try these assignments out to strength my foundation. I'm interested in pursuing a career as a concept artist in the entertainment industry. The object I drew from observation was a hair clip for women, I know why am I drawing that, I saw it lying around so I drew it. The second image on the bottom is the second part of the assignment, I turned the hair clip into knife with a retractable mini blade. While doing this assignment I learned a lot more about creating form with values. I also learned more about how light effects different surfaces. This is a great thread, I look forward to learning a lot, Thank you Seedling for sharing your experiences with us.

    wazup Nalot

    You shouldn't compare yourself to other artist because we are all on different levels of our talent. You should continue to learn at your own pace. When you worry about not being as good as someone else, u stress yourself out and keep yourself from learning what you need to learn. Practice makes perfect, always draw from life.
