great job  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

On the next attempt, start with the background darker as that will give everything more contrast so the glass will look even more shiny O0

Continuing on with pencil work, the two teens tried their luck at the glass today. Ryan says his stem went a bit wobbly but he doesn't know why.

And Rachel's glass - the afternoon sun caught by the camera, not the pencil!

Very well done Rachel and Ryan!

You really nail it, very realistic glass effect.

Rachel and Ryan,

You two are really getting good.  Your glasses have a nice sparkle.  Great lesson, wasn't it!

both are spot on, well done guys :congrats: :not_worthy: :cloud9:

Ryan - when you have to draw horizontal or vertical lines, you may find that if you turn the paper at an angle it is easier - when you draw or write you hold your lower arm and wrist at a certain angle so try matching the angle of the paper to the angle of your arm - that works for me

Thanks Nolan. Ryan says that makes sense. (He's always drawing planes and jets so needs those lines to be right!)

Wasn't that fun, Ginger!  Loved that class, too.

The shiny spots are just sparkling! 

Except for the base swinging out a bit too far to the left, I'd say you did a great job.

Ready to pour the wine?

Mea, thank you for your comment. This is what Nolan was referencing in the first part of the video. Even though the drawing is copied, the shadings are playing a trick, which makes it look out of shape. Maybe Nolan will comment and let me know how I should have compensated for that.

Your glass is perfect :congrats:

It is just the shape of the base that is not symmetrical, so just rub over the left side and redo that by mirroring the shape of the right hand side, then working the rest of the reflections in O0 - something I should have done with mine but never did :knuppel2:

Nolan, thank you, I will re-do this. Also would you share where you first talk about how to make the mechanical pencil that I can use on the rose?
