Linley,

Definitely getting better.  One tip is to gradually fade out the value so that you do not have rigid black lines, like at the edge of the fins.

Otherwise, great job.

 :thankyou:   Thank you, Teresa!  I try to practice some every day.


 :thankyou:  Thank you, mea!  I was trying to do a small shadow to show separation of the fins and it looks like I wound up going too far with it. 


 :thankyou:   Thank you, Nolan!  It does look rounder.


I really appreciate the feedback from everyone.  I learn something new every time.   :smitten:

I finished my barn drawing.  It is by hand instead of traced, so the perspective is off a bit.  I really enjoyed drawing all the shingles.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Mysti apart from the perspective being a bit off, your shading is excellent and the fact that you drew it by hand instead of tracing, is really something.  Good job.

Mysti,

Yes, the shingles really look good.  I like that added touch.

Hey, no worries about the slanting walls, I see many buildings like that here in the Oahu countryside.

Great go for freehanding Mysti! I also tried freehanding this lesson. Good on you.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

If the verticals were straight you would have a much 'younger' barn...rather like people, which would be me  :whistle: . In younger years I was straight, slim, and quite well put together if I do say so myself  ;)    As I (as with your barn) age, the foundation tends to slip a bit, spread a little, our shape changes and we gain "character" !!!  Your barn and I have much in common...we both have great character!  O0    :2funny:

great drawing with good textures :clap: :clap: :clap:

Just be careful when drawing verticals - despite perspective changing things, verticals always remain vertical regardless of where you view them from

sadly after every artwork we complete we will find things to nitpick about.

I always leave it a day for my head to clear, then decide if any of those are critical and fix them / remember them for next time. If they are not critical I don't worry about it O0
