this was one of my first college still life illustrations.

took 5 hours-ish

only used black, red, &white


Not bad.

I think you could've gone further with the values though. Implied line? It works if done right, but I dont think it's a requirement in art today. Have you seen some of the shit people produce?

Anywho, I think for five hours work, this looks pretty damn good because you've got value structures, and what looks like a nearly finished work. What media did you use, what size is the work, and why was the addition of red required? I hate when teachers do that. "use black, white and ONE color".. Hopefully tints, tones and shades of red were allowed (which, judging by the round spherical object in the corner, I'm thinking they were - which is good).

Looks pretty good, I'd just like to see a more high rez image.

we use red instead of black to draw the basic shape, like the blueprint of the drawing, no pencil. it was required to show that using one other coler can actually make a full color image be properly represented.

its all chalk contea.

black vynel and compressed for different tones

and white compresed. with the red i was actually able to make orange, bright red, dark burgandy and others just by adding certain blacks.

yes implied line isnt used or required much anymore, and while the stuff that people produce today is AMAZING, its just so awesome that the dieing art of implied line can still blow them out of the water. too many peole from my generation cant appreciat older artforms, there so used to hard lines.

but like i said its a still-life class, so there is no such thing as a difinative line in reality, which is true.

il get the measurments up in the description later.


could use more definite lines for contrast

we were not allowed to use any diffinitive lines in this class. we were told that implied lining was what really needs to be seen in todays art. this was a still-life class.

there are no difinative lines in real life, thats what our techer kept pounding into our heads =P
