Sketchbook #1 – Old Shoes

Categories: Sketchbooks No Comments

Here are some examples for next weeks Sketchbook Assignment. Remember, it’s due on TUESDAY!, because of the holiday weekend! Also, you need to have BOTH SHOES in the drawing. Not just one. But you can – and should – have them overlapping.

Sketchbook Assignment: Old Toys

Categories: Sketchbooks No Comments

This upcoming Wednesday you have another sketchbook due!  The assignment is to draw two old toys.  Below I have included a few examples – pay close attention to how the drawings are shaded.  You want to give your drawing a full range of values, much like the value scales we did last week.  Also, please remember to get yourself a nice 2B pencil (or softer!) to do these sketches with.  They’re pretty common pencils, and I cannot over emphasize how much easier they will make your assignment.  Using the wrong pencil when drawing is like trying to run a race in flip-flops – your not going to do well no matter how good you are!

Note that some of these examples only have one object in them: You need to have two toys in your drawing.

The first sketchbook assignment is a pretty simple one.  You are to draw an object using cross-contour lines.  Do not draw a simple object that has no interior detail, like an iPhone or a tissue box, for example. First off, it will be harder to make a good drawing of something like that, and secondly you won’t really get good practice in drawing lines.  Knowing how to use lines to define an object and define its space is a very important design skill, so while this is a decently simple assignment, take it seriously, please!

Sketchbook Assignments for Quarter 1

Linked below is the handout I gave in class today: All of the sketchbook assignments for Quarter 1. Remember, I will post examples for each one the weekend before it is due. And while the sketchbook is due on Wednesday, I highly recommend that you do not wait until Tuesday to attempt the assignment – do them over the weekend and save yourself a lot of trouble.
