This was an exercise off of a worksheet given to us. Here we practiced drafting and using the poche' technique. I learned that it was better to poche' on the backside of the paper.

I enjoyed this exercise and approached it much differently than I did on my other drawings. Here I took a small ruler and used it to draw straight edges or lines wherever I needed. I found that it was much more effective and the drawing turned out alot cleaner than just some ragged lines and cross hatching. The straight lines brought out more of the vertical hatching technique as well and made objects look defined. Only a little bit of hatching seemed necessary to define each object, otherwise it seemed to over power it.

The First drawing of the semester thus far, and quite messy too. I was not too pleased with the drawing, because the lines and proportions got thrown off a couple time, and considering I used pen instead of pencil I had to just work with my mistakes which led to this. In the future I would look into coloring the drawing, because it has a nice cartoon-like feel to it and the colors would really help in defining texture and shade as well.
