That looks great Steven you can really see the layers of skin peeling away.

Peggy looks good, it almost looks like you have a sun ray shining down on the onion  :) very cool.

I've thought about using my scanner but my desktop is sooooo slow  :pullhair: and my iPad is so quick that I am usually way too impatient.  What is a 2 min job on my iPad takes 20mins on the computer and that is before attempting to get the scanner to work correctly  :o

Question about the upcoming rose live lesson.  I am not sure if I will be called into work often until the day of due to being a reliever.  So I am not sure if I will make the live show.  If I want to see it later do I still book a spot or does that take someone else's chance?  And then how do I make it so I can get it later?  Sorry being such a newbie here  :blush:

Thanks
Aroha! Lisa :-)

Lisa,

I always buy something I want when it is going to be live, even if I won't be there to see it.  It gets loaded in your "booked" classes, so you can few it as many times as you want after the replay comes out (usually a couple of days).

Hope that helps.

This being a paid class, you will have to book it, whether you watch live on line or not. By booking you will not take anyone space. Then, when the replay is available ( about 2 days after the live one) you'll have to "click" on Paint Basket TV, then click again on "view my unlocked classes" - green button. Then you'll click on "pencil drawings" if you have other classes, in other media. Slide down on that page until you find the replay. At this time you can open the class as many times as you need. You also can run and stop the class as you go. Hope I was able to help you, Doina

more great drawings, well done guys. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Lisa your background looks great now.

I will show how to sort the background in next week's feedback O0

Harald, I would like to see a bit more variation in tonal value in your drawing. Have you done the tonal charts yet?

Lisa, I too book classes I want when they go live, even if I will not be able to attend the live viewing.  You may wonder why we would do this.  In the past (I am assuming now too) the live class has been at a discounted price from the class offered later on.  So I save a few dollars ordering the live version, and of course also get the replay along with it at no extra cost.  Win/ Win   :yippee: :yippee:

Sue,

Your onion and garlic look good.  You got the crackly part of the onion skin to look real.  I didn't realize what it was when I did it, so mine did not look true to form.

Finally finished my onion.  I have to say I had great difficulty with this one.  Had difficulty using the chisel point.
Could not keep the chisel angel right.  Found myself wearing away one side or the other.  Everytime I picked a pencil up I had to make some adjustment. I just could not lay a line of shading where I wanted it.

it isn't an easy drawing, but you don't get better practice for spotting your tonal values, and looking at your drawing, the practice has paid off.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Soon you will find spotting those tonal values easy and this drawing will become a breeze to draw Jill O0

Thank you Nolan.  How true!  I can see a difference with each lesson.  It's always a thrill to learn something new and then be able to put it into practice.

Nice onion/garlic drawing.

Wish my background had looked as good as yours!!  It has a nice woven-textured look to it.  Mine looked like lines on a rampage!
