Exercise 2.2: 10 Cubes: Mixed Media renders
Building on from the previous exercise, I spent a bit more time preparing and planning drawings of the materials. Using pencil, pen, printed patterns and soft pastels I created renders for the following 10 cubes.
This exercise was much more fun, knowing I had more time to create the renders meant I was able to play about with ideas.
Looking back over all the drawings of the cubes, I would say that exercise 2 was the most enjoyable, 20 seconds to draw a render on a cube is not enough time for me but with time and practise I am sure I can achieve a quick sketch, but with more time the cubes can be made to look so much more creative and interesting. I have learnt so much more than I expected to from this exercise, how to really think about patterns and textures to make them look like the real thing. Admittedly my drawings need more practise!
