Thirst by Trichardsen Thirst by Trichardsen
Took a picture of me pouring water into a glass and translated that to paper.

Used Prismacolor col-erase black and HB derwent pencil on 85 lbs A4 paper.
About 60 hours.

* Reworked a little and scanned ( love my scanner :) )

This is awesome! :D ok, first off I would like to say that I love all of the detail you put in to this! :D I wish I could beatientnenough to do that lol :D I really like the contrast too :D it makes it so much easier to see all of the the details in the picture :D I also like how you did the background, contrasting it with the glass so it is easier to see :D the detail in this picture is just plain stunning!! A person looking at it can definitely tell how much time you must have spent on it to make it look like this :D
What do you think?

I can tell that you have spent a lot of time on this. You drew it with pencils and shaded, and I right?I hope you realize how hard you've worked, because I do. You put a lot of effort into this piece.(You even made the water look clear.) The glass shines, and you can see the bubbles. So it is a really nice piece. I think that you did a good job, don't you? You should make more work like this in the future.You did a good job on the background, as well. It fits in well, with the piece.
What do you think?

class is hard, and that is a splendid rendition, although the perspective of the bottom of the glass feels alittle off, i still love it

Yeah there was a couple of things I didnt quite get right on this, but still I am very happy with it, not gonna go in and change anything since It is a very good reminder of those important but small things. :D

i know what you mean XD pain in the butt to redraw stuff once its done, not like we can go back and erase it off the layers and easily fix it o.o; i think i draw too hard sometimes, cant barely erase anything at all lol
Reply
:icontrichardsen:
Trichardsen Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Professional Photographer
Even worse once You have sprayed it with fixative. ;)

I generaly just go from light to dark, rarely even need the eraser anymore, I just use it to pop highlights at the end. :)
( dont take it as any form of bragging, cause it is not, I just make sure to take my time when drawing ) :D

CKDreamer Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
oh >.> fixitive, never used that stuff XD lol

and yeah i slowly learn to work from lightest shades to darkest, but sometimes thinks get messy, when i dont wait long enough for my watercolors to dry XD impatient.... bad...

Fixative is good to preserve your drawings, but kinda important to use it when you are sure you have corrected all that needs to be corrected, cause removing value after is a pain, adding is easy. :D

Patience is that ongoing struggle when drawing, I certainly feel it at times, but then I just take a break so I dont rush anything. :D

CKDreamer Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
XD i don't really consider any of my drawings worth perserving just yet lol
soooo xD yeah
true but when i took life drawing classes, it's all about rushing, 2 minute drawings 5 min, ect ect, it was all rushing and i was miserable XD but i keep going because it's like, nesscary evil.
but at home is when i get to just ._. curl in a corner and relax lol

Yeah life drawing is a lot about gesture lines, and its not really something you do slowly, getting the pose down quick is key.
Although I havent been to any life drawing classes I do prefer the slow method, I just like to see things slowly come alive on the canvas/paper. :D

Wow, I love the water and the glass. It has so much detail...amazing! The background bugs me a bit for some reason...seems like there's not enough detail or something in it to make the glass look more grounded into the background. But hey, after spending so much time on making water look like water, I wouldn't have much energy to try for a fantabulistic background either. Overall, very well done.
