Cross Contour Line Drawings

So here’s a continuation of for the drawing lessons I am taking on Udemy. Drawing objects and use cross contour lines to refine it. It’s hard to fight habits as the initial drawing was looking on the subject more than you pencil and paper before I refine it with cross contour. I can only show and tell the results but I can’t say if did a great job or not.

Blue shoes cross contour

I refining this blue shoes was tricky as I took out the foot mold inside the shoes. The lines the I started with was in a wrong angle so I rework on it. I didn’t even bother with erasing my mistake and just draw in top of it so it looks a bit off still. Noticing my mistake on the top shoe I took more care on the second one with not sure how to tackle the highlight on the left part of the shoe I lined even tho I should have just left it be.

Barrel drawing

Barrel refined with cross contour lines

Here’s a barrel but believe it or not was tricky reference to look for as some barrels are remade to furniture etc. Lesson learned on the refining this but the initial drawing was done the second time. With it’s cylindrical shape I thought first the the cross contour lines will go left to right but I went with top to bottom with the planks and kept left to right with the ring holding them in place.

Mountain initial drawing

Mountain with cross contour

Here’s the mountain Salher picked up from Flickr via Google search. Choosed this one without knowing it’s name but looks perfect subject to draw for the lesson. The initial drawing was more simpler than the rest as just the main shape of the mountain but the rest feels like a cheat since the cross contour lines are already detailed in the reference.

Sunflower drawing with cross contour

Now where back to the sunflower from the initial post, while I did draw this first this was last to be detail. The drawing was tricky to follow the exercise and going old habits but the result here is the same with the barrel. But same with the mountain that each petals are already lined well from the photograph and just shaded more from the start of the petal. The center are just points and didn’t went to too much detail with it.

This one I gave up trying to draw. I had such a hard time getting shape right or just trying to hard. But here’s something I might get back into once I hone up a bit of my drawing skill. Also I may do more as this exercise at some point as I kinda see it’s reasoning or appeal.

Well more lessons to watch and to draw with.
