Well here is my drawing along with Nolan. I will not make a comment.  ;D

Patricia I see you did yours too. Good job.   O0 O0 O0

Nolan just wanted you too know that I could not use my chat box. This is what it said-----error username/user ID sessions values are not set. file cms. php  Which I do not have a clue what all that means. You asked if any one had problems with their chat. I couldn't tell you. I guess I should of sent my carrier pigeon to let you know. But my luck it would of go lost.   :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:
I enjoyed the lesson.

Great job on the chickadees everyone, they look terrific. I too had no chat box access with the same problems as Nina , I couldn't let Nolan know.  It was a great class, I got halfway through with mine then got too tired. Too early these classes are for me, Ive gotta get up ready to draw at 5.30 in the morning ( yeah right.)

beautiful work guys, especially as you kept up with me :congrats:

As far as the chat box is concerned - the new chat box checks that you are logged into the PB website in order to get your username. Those that couldn't use the chat box - do you have the system keep you logged in forever (so you never need to login) or do you log into the website every time you visit?

Patricia, Nina, Carol  Wonderful job on all the cute Chickadee, aren't birds fun!  So sorry I have missed the first few classes of this series.  We have been involved with moving my Mother-in-law into an assisted living home, after she had a stoke last week, it has been a crazy week.  I have purchased the bird drawing classes and hope to catch up as soon as things settle down on the homefront. 

Great Job Ladies, Bravo!!!

Sue, I am so sad to hear about your mother in law and the stroke she had.  I pray that things will settle down soon for you all and that she will be taken well care of in her new residence and above all, that she will be happy there.

Sally, your little Chickadee looks so cute, you have really done a great job  :clap: . I am looking so forward to start this lesson myself...but first I have to finish my spoon  :sweat:

Patricia, you are so right  :smart: Nolan and  :smart: Dennis are such great teachers, and they really explane everything so clear but also their encouraging comments do help a lot. I loved doing the Let's Draw course, and now the Landscape course...I am sure I will love the Pencil Drawing Club even ore...finally able to do all those awesome classes that I have missed.

 I think it is their best idea :idea: to make following classes with the clubs so affordable for all. Even with my very limited budget, all is going to the hospital right now,  1/4 paid 3/4 still to go :cost: , I am able to at least follow one club every month and switch between all the clubs, circulaing between drawing, watercolour, oils, and acrylics. And right now I joined the watercolour club also O0 ...I just have to do some of those awesome classes, have to get the hang of painting again :smitten:

Have a great day  :1hug:

Yes Patricia its was a cute and fun bird to draw. It sets the bases for drawing many many birds like it I think.
Nolan I was a bit slack with  the wood. I think I tried to do it from memory rather than watching that part of the video again. Naughty Naughty. One of those caught speeding moments :2funny:

Natalie, I just love birds, understand about getting out of practice. I too need to draw more often but there are so many classes I want to do and just not enough time in the day to do them all.  Anyways I think your bird is still very good.  :)

What a cute little chickadee.  Lots of fine lines and little flicks.

The outlining on the beak and claws is noticeable.  That takes away from the quality of the rest of your work on this.

Lovely bird Lisa.   For the sharpening all you need is a blade to do different pencil point.
Title: Re: 18 - Black Capped Chickadee
Post by: Lisa gale on February 07, 2015, 10:11:15 PM
Thank you Mea ,  I agree. I think that was one of the issues with not having a sharp enough pencil.

Hi Danielle,  I do have a blade but I haven't mastered getting the point right.  I think I have finally managed the flat sided sharping for the large areas but I can't keep a chiseled edge. I don't think I'm rotating the pencil enough.  i'll keep working on, and I think I'll review that lesson.  Thanks for your help

Nolan, please tell me where I can learn about the scribe.  You used it, but must have explained it in an earlier lesson that I missed.  It was very effective, so I'd like to add one to my tool kit!

Went back and looked at all 10 pages of chickadees on the Forum (which I forgot to do before I started mine!).

I can see that not only did I get the beak wrong, I have the feathers going in the wrong direction on his chin (Do birds have chins?).

I know I made an additional wooden block.  I just couldn't get the value change on the long block to look right.

I wish my bird had a wispier top-of-the-head like Louisa's. 

I'm still very proud of what I did and still marvel that I even did it!

What you want to be careful of is the fly away hairs - you only see fly away hairs on a bird if the wind is really blowing hard

To lighten the left hand side of the wood, shape your kneaded eraser into a sausage then roll it over that area to lift some of the graphite. Next time you want to use two different grades of pencil to get the tonal change correct O0

I loved this class. It is amazing how much a shadow changes the depth of the drawing.

Really good job, Ginger.  Here's a thought: If you darken the right side of the eye even more, it will give the smaller sparkle more pop.

That's one of my favorite lessons.  Real confidence builder.
