Exercise 1: Using a soft graphite pencil, create a value scale as pictured below, then try rendering a simple form to represent lighting and dimensionality using only value. Lastly try shading 3 different value studies for Assignment 1.
First: In your sketchbook do a drawing with a Value Scale of a sphere.
Create a simple value scale such as the one at the bottom of the study below. Find a cube and a sphere to light and draw. Do a value study from observation. Set up a simple form and a light source. Try to “turn the form” or create volume by using the values in the scale you created.
- Be sure to use the full range of values.
- Allow 30 minutes for the drawing and 30 minutes for the value scale. Take your time.
USING your Value Scale as reference. Create 3 different Value Studies of Assignment 1.
If you are UNPREPARED FOR CLASS and clan’t shade your OWN WORK… here is a value shading Exercise to get you started.
