No Idea


Badge Awards


Hi there, I finished this drawing last night. Have to say it was a lot of fun to draw something this different. The meaning behind the title is simple, since the bulb is broken to me it represents "no idea" as opposed to a working bulb. I drew this one as a study in metal and glass, I've drawn both before but never to this degree. I wanted to draw both parts as real as I was capable of, as many of you know I love to challenge myself.

What I've learned and would like to convey with this piece is: drawing is fun, yes it's common to look at other artist's work and say "I've got no idea how they can do that" well trying to do it is where the fun lays my friends, challenging yourself is one sure way to grow as an artist!

EDIT: I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments, I have read each and ever one! I was asked if I used a reference photo and yes I did, I also had a lightbulb close by for reference too. Oh I reworked a few tiny areas and rescanned the drawing, and I uploaded a wider close-up image too. Take care ~Linda

EDIT 10-9-08: I am now offering prints of this drawing!!
