Ooh, it's good that you're practicing with still-lifes. I think you should try to add more shading, though. Don't be afraid to press down hard!


Actually Seefy, I'd say not to press down TOO hard, to where you give indentions into the paper, instead, create darker tones using different grades of pencil. Try HB-6B grades.. The reason for this is if you make a mistake and need to erase, the indentions won't cause a mess.. :)

Also, for the picture it's self, try and get a more broad variety of tone. There should be super dark, dark, medium, light, super light... make sense?

I liked the apples, you got some reflected light going on there.. good stuff ^.^

I did the apples about a month ago and I use referance from a drawing book.the pears I didn't have a referance do so I just drew them. And ya you make sense with the tone thing

oh ok.. well that explains why the pears look... off plane.. draw from life.. not just references, get some basic shaped objects, set them on a table with a lamp for specific lighting, and then go to town. Keep only the lamp light on, and play some of your favorite drawing music then just get lost in it.. i'm sure you'll do great :)

I didn't use reference for the pears either though. That's why it's ugly, I will do what you say

Motivation comes from within! Trust me, once you produce a still life that is awesome, you'll start feeling better :)

If you feel like doing something else, than do it by all means! sketch some gestures of a human figure from reference, design an new character, go attack a canvas with paint with not intent of drawing anything specific but just making a mess.. have fun!

I don't know much about still life painting, but as for the anatomy, you are already more determined than a good 80% of the newbies here. Most people just quit and leave the site all together, but you will go very far if you keep on practicing like you already are :)

I don't know if anyone has referred this to you, but have you tried the 30 second drawing exercises on Posemaniacs.com? If you make that part of your daily routine, you'll be amazed at your own improvement!

Yes I have been referee but I haven't tried it yet cause I use my iPod most of the time instead of the computer. I'm trying to stay determined hopefully I will stay determined :)
