I’ve been spending a lot of my spare time continuing to hone my artistic drawing skills with Drawabox. I’ve almost completed lesson two, and here’s my results thus far:

Thinking in 3D

The task here was to draw arrows and forms that appear to exist in a 3D space on a 2D surface.

Texture and Detail

This one was a lot of fun but also surprisingly difficult. It consists of studying textures, their depth model and its application on a 3D surface under a fixed light condition.

First up was a texture study:

Texture Analysis Frankenstein - DAB — Lesson 2!

Followed by applying random textures to the sausages we drew in the earlier homework — that meant understanding a texture, and recreating it on a 3D surface. This one was quite tough! Word of advice: Larger textures. I tended to draw mine far too detailed, which cost a lot of time…


Next up — construction! I can almost feel it. Getting closer to the meat of the course. This one consists of plopping several 3D objects into one another, and drawing their intersection. This one was tough! I spent a lot more time thinking about the objects in space than actually drawing. Still, I think it went fairly well — most of the time!

And at last — floppy sausages!

With that, I completed lesson 2 — onwards to lesson 3.
