January 16

Back to the drawing board...that is if I had a drawing board.  I'm OK with the side angles, but I feel the angles on the top are completely messed up.  Trying to convey six different colors in gray scale is rough.  I need to look around my place for more things to draw.  I feel like I look at some things and think, "that would be stupid to draw", or "that's too hard to draw."  Gotta work on that attitude.


  1. Nothing is stupid to draw! Its all work. Try not to convey the colors just the shadows for now. Yeah and your angles are a little off, but what you can do is try to do perspective. Make a dot on your paper then make the square. then connect light lines from the dot to the corners with a ruler. with that you can make the lines of the other sides.... This is difficult to explain with out showing you >.>.... And nothing is stupid to draw XD <3 It all helps! Keep up the good work!!

  2. Yeah, 3D is tricky. You have to make sure you are consistent with the lines. What I mean is that whatever the angle of your external line, the other lines have to have the same angle and relationship to the side of the paper. Like she said above, hard to explain, but I'd be glad to show you. Love your self-challenge.
