EDM #35

#35 is to draw a bike or part of one.
I did start to draw a bike that was propped up against a house across the street, then I was visiting Dianne's Blog http://magpiesenvy.blogspot.com and she had a picture that she had taken of a Penny-Farthing while out one day and though it would be fun to sketch that instead.
I will post my pretty poor original attempt later, If I can get it right. lol
Oh, and I was going to use this as my draw something round challenge, but as you can no doubt see, (Is it ROUND? NOT!!!!!!!!.)

But of course the more I attempted to make it round, the bigger the tires got. Alas...... I just might have give this another try.
I used my new graphite pencil only, then my blending stump.

It looks great. They are such intricate things to draw and you've done a great job! I'm really enjoying looking at your drawings!

I think the bike is great too, drawing lines and circles free hand are not to easy...

Tonniece this is FANTASTIC! I saw the penny farthing on Dianne's blog and your drawing is wonderful. You are just so good.

Tonniece said...

Thanks, now if I can just get the circle right. lol

You got that right Dianne. But what a fun subject to do.


Thanks for stopping by, I actually did the spokes freehand, and the wheels too. (hehe) Circles? not good.... Lines better. lol

Thank you. Yes I was thrilled to see it on Di's blog, I was haveing a hard time with the other sketch I was working on.

Tonniece, this is spectacular! The spokes are so detailed and intricate. Did you get cross-eyed from drawing them? ;)

Hi Luci

Now that you mention it, I was going a bit cross-eyed. lol
