Well, what to say about this... a practice in drawing chrome reflecting objects. Rather enjoyable to figure out the reflections. Yeah, that's what it was :)

Old pic. Made with colour pencils and white gouache on Canson mi-teintes paper.

Want to know more about drawing chrome and reflections? See my tutorial in the FARP ;)

This image is perfection.. Continue working with real paper and colours.. The best images you have made have at least started as a painting or drawing.. You should not erase your "lines" with electronic tools..

This peice is absolutely amazing. I feel the elegance in this image quite strongly, and although its an 'experimental' peice, the simplicity in the lines, and the non-intrusive background simply makes this an beautiful, simple and elegant picture. Its almost like the hand is made of fragile glass, not hard, solid metal. (although part of me wonders how many test peices you did to actually achive this effect...)
so far, i have around 12 ... Thanks for the tutorials they have been highly instructive, but i guess im a slow learner!
