Day 37: Bowl
Day 37 of 100 Days of drawing icons.
Welcome to Day 37 of 100 Day’s of drawing icons.
Today’s Prompt is to draw a bowl.
I’ve included some reference to save you time. I think a bowl is a really beautiful thing to draw. It’s such a simple subject. But there are so many lessons you can learn from drawing a bowl.
Here are some things you could look out for in the reference:
The tones inside vs outside the bowl
The thickness and shape of the brim
Patterns on the bowl
The various gradients of the half spheres and cylinder
Highlights and shadows that create lines
The shapes of reflected light.
In my sketchbook I have a live area - The square on the right page. This is where the illustration goes.
The rest of the area is the staging area. Here I are my observational drawing and test my marks, before committing to the live area.
I moved to Procreate to clean up the icon. The thing that I struggle with on the sketchbook is getting clean crisp shapes. This is the main thing I concerned by self with in procreate.
Two other things I did were remove unwanted marks, and add a little more gradient for a more finished look.
