  • Very good attempt. I would suggest that you work harder on your symmetry and not make your outlines so dark as it takes away from the realism of the thing.

  • Yeah i agree, lovely chiaroscuro. But i do suggest you give it some sense of stability, maybe a table? or a line behind it to suggest a ground. c: 5/5 though. <3

  • Thank you smile
    and I find the easiest way to do shading (while drawing something your looking at) is to lightly outline the spots where the darkest part is and where the brightest part is and work on it from there. Then you can blend it with a kleenex or something else (not your finger though).

  • I love lamp! Sorry, I couldn't resist. But back on topic, I think this is a very good drawing! I stink at lighting/shading haha
