Sketch of Seashells / 貝殻のスケッチ (ENG/JPN)

in OnChainArt13 days ago (edited)


I couldn't go outside to sketch because of COVID -19, and I thought I didn't have much to sketch at home, but I remembered that I bought an assortment of shells at a 100 yen store the other day. I bought it as a material for a mixed-media work, but I wanted to sketch it, so I put the shells on the desk.

(1)I draw a snail shell and a bivalve shell.

(2)I use a pencil to lightly scratch the paper.

(3)I draw the outline carefully.

(4)I add a shadow.

(5)I draw a fine pattern. When you put a pencil up, the line is thin, so you lay it down and draw a pattern.

(6)I can draw a snail pattern. Continue drawing clam patterns.

(7)I could draw a bivalve pattern. I had a hard time drawing the pattern of bivalves because the shading is delicate.

(8)I sign it and it's done.

I don't usually focus too much on drawing and take pictures of the process, so I thought it would be good to take pictures of the process of drawing sometimes. On the other hand, my concentration was not good enough and I couldn't draw very well.




























That was a rather abrupt transition from loose outline to outline, it's like magic XD

Yay for finding interesting stuff to sketch when you're stuck inside :)

Thank you. I want to find something interesting and sketch it.
