250 Cylinders - 221-230

Not much creative energy left from this week, and itching to finally finish this booooring exercise. So I did 10 instead of 5. There. I warned you.

Mansion - Shading 2

This pass added a darker tone, increasing contrast. All that remains is dark tones and ground.

Mansion - Shading 1

The first shading pass, which went really well (and fast!). It's only the local tone of the room walls, but that already makes a big difference. I will now continue to add 2 more darker shades, then do the ground around it.

250 Cylinders - 196-200

Drawing boxes with two square sides is difficult, as the view angle onto the square is in a specific relationship with how much the sides are foreshortened - and I don't understand it yet, nor am I intuitively guessing it... is there a geometrist in the house?

Mansion - more ink shading tests

Since I can't use masking fluid, I'm trying out how well I could freehand paint the ground around the caves. It's tricky, but not impossible. But I won't use the same ink I used for drawing: As you can see on the second picture, the ink flow of Noodler's Black is irregular and blotchy. On the first picture, Deleter 2 ink flows much more smoothly and spreads better. But it also dries quicker...

Mansion - ink shading tests

The ink I'm using here, Noodler's Black, has some really nice qualities such as being easily dilutable and forming interesting noise patterns. BUT it has an achilles heel: It doesn't work well with masking fluid (both of the ones I used) - it bleeds into it, and the color will go right off when rubbing it off. So I can't use masking here. This is going to be difficult...

That's why I'm testing first. Had I started right away, I would have ruined it the drawing.

Mansion - final outline - ink

Here's the version without pencil marks (and my backup in case things go wrong).

I'm thinking hard about shading, see next post...

Mansion - Outline 6 - ink

The outlines are done, but I'm going to check if I missed anything before I erase my pencil marks.

You can never know when you'll need to know how to draw cubes in perspective. Be like @lordampersand and just learn the hell out of them

Merci (Postcard) - watercolor

I tried out my new masking pen. Now I'm getting ideas for holiday cards... 🤔
