I have a question about the new selection/gradient assignment. Are you going to provide an image like you did before or is it open? I think I missed the details. I still plan on going back and attempting the other assignments as well.. Hopefully I uploaded my image correctly.

I can't figure out how to upload photo. Help?

Hey Ghoulz,
The first class assignment for the gradient/selection tool is for the image posted on the first page. There has been another class since with an updated assignment. Look for the YouTube links by Sickbrush!
As far as image hosting goes, not sure how other people do it, I bet there's a better way, but I can tell you how I post images. Whenever you respond, or make a new reply there's a landscape-icon on the top right of the text box; when you click it it gives you a chance to link to where your image is located.
There's a couple of routes you could go, imageshack offers image hosting, though I've had some trouble uploading nudes lately due to their user-flagged violation terms service. (apparently art = porn) 4519626a
-You could set a blog through Blogger, or host through a deviantart account.
When you right click your image on any website, you can scroll down and click "view image".
copy paste that link's location in the landscape-icon image I mentioned above.
or
you could just type [img] weblinkgoeshere [/img]
-feel free to pm if you have any more questions!

Hey Ghoulz, just use photobucket and link your image with the IMG tags, it works better.


Also, I'm not sure if this will be helpful to anyone, but I was struggling with ellipses and constructing the images as well so I wrote down my process and thoughts. Hope this makes some sense.

1. I started this drawing more or less freehand, jotting down rough boxes and noting the main proportions. The really hard part for me here was finding a way to measure width as the lamp kept getting too fat. What really helped was finding the middle point where the neck connects to the base and comparing that with some landmarks on the lamp shade part.

For example, the square part at the end of the lamp shade fits about three times in the opening of the lamp shade and three times in the base. This gives me an idea about the size of all three major parts of the lamp, only leaving the neck to worry about. Also as I go along I will compare almost everything to one of these two pieces of the object (mostly the base), making sure everything stays consistent.

2. This is where I started struggling with ellipses, but the point of the exercise is to use measuring lines so I was not going to just wing it. I used squares in perspective, trying to line the center of each square with the center of the objects I was trying to draw.

For example the bottom square lines up with the ending of the lamp neck and the square for the opening lines up with the power knob.

3. Once I started using the squares and I had the approximate sizes marked up everything went much smoother and although I jumped outside the lines a bit for the final details it really helped to have the rough outlines there. I really recommend trying to encapsulate every piece of the object you're trying to draw into a square and comparing it with at least one if not two other pieces of the object.

Good luck.
