Candid Camera by Checker-Bee Candid Camera by Checker-Bee
Homework assignment for my class focusing on shading :) It's a candid picture of a camera!The tables have turned!

On a Serious and Sentimental note:

I've been wanting to draw this camera for a long time. It's an old German camera that belonged to my grandpa. He is one of my greatest inspirations. My hero and one of the greatest men I've ever known. This may not be my masterpiece, but I thought of him as I drew this, remembering all the times he'd stop to snap a picture of an old barn in the country or bend down to get a unique angle for a family portrait. I'm going to get some film in this old camera and take some barn shots for him. Bapa, this one's for you! I love you so much and can't wait to see you in Heaven someday. You can give me a singing lesson and we can do Tai-Chi together. :heart:

Geez, I'm tearing up just writing this! I'm such a sentimental softie!

Tools: Graphite and paper :P
Time: 1.5 Hours

ikr?! I'm working on a piece right now that i started in black and white. It looked really good, so i made a copy and started coloring. DAANG! it's way harder to make it look nice! someday I'll master it!

Teah! And because I have just Crayola 60-pack pencil carayons, the quality isn't the best, and I only have so much variety (sounds ironic with the 60-pack, but yeah). I would actually like to experiment with water colour pencil crayons... :D

water color pencils look really nice! u can do something similar with regular colored pencils, but its not quite the same. :) I'm gonna try anyway! :D
