Doing this from a real subject and having a lot of trouble. Maybe once I start coloring and shading it will miraculously turn out OK.

I think what you have so far is great. I'm looking forward to watching this develop.

I think I'm going to move on to a new drawing. I can't make this look the way I want. I should probably stick to tutorials for now as I've had much better luck with them and I have a lot of learning to do.

I like the way the chair came out and the candle is growing on me but the dish:surprise: I just colored it in.

So here it is.

Watch your perspective... There's a strong oops between the stool top & the legs. As if the top is tilted about 40 degrees. As for color... Its a sketch. Have fun & don't be too serious.

Thanks Sorin. I think I might have got that right if I had been working from a photo. I'm just starting out and I find it hard to not take everything too seriously.

I think you did a fantastic job on the candle! It is very realistic.

I do tutorials all the time and they have taught me so much. Sometimes I feel a little guilty like it is cheating or something, but that usually passes quickly, and no it definitely is not cheating it is being smart and learning from a teacher.

I'll usually do a tutorial and then do some originals....the tutorial always has better composition and gets better responses. But my originals are getting better all the time. I know it's just a matter of time that I won't be needing to view the tutorials any longer.

Thanks Terry. Looks like I'll be following in your foot steps :D

Well, maybe I should specialize in candles!:vs_smirk:

The best thing you did here is, you did it! Practice is how we accomplish improvement. Do not let your attempts discourage you, learn from them. I would suggest before you jump off this horse do it again then compare.

Have you tried blind contour drawings? They are a great way to "see" your work with more details and perspective.
