Do I hate drawing grass!!!


I must have drawn this grass 15 time and just cant get the hang of it, I know how i want it to look but just cant get there.... from now on no more grass in my drawings. if you want to see how grass should look check out Nolon Stacey's blog page...

Hi Grahame,
I think it's coming along great, you're way too hard on yourself. Will be keeping an eye on this.

Thanks Erik, and welcome, Ive already erased the grass as you see it here, and started again, hope to post an update tomorrow.

This is looking great Grahame! Grass is hard!!! and you are right about Nolon Stacey , the rabbit in the grass is amazing!!! I'm not sure it's something I would want to attempt any time soon : ) Good Luck

Thanks Jennie, Im still working on the grass one day ill get it right...

Looking good though! Grass is really complex, reflecting ever changing light and shadows. I believe it should never become the main focal point of a piece and get given too much detail...
Hang in there: your rhino is looking good.

Aah, but it'll be worth it :) I'm looking forward to seeing it finished.

Grahame Butler said...

Thank you Sheona, I agree with what you say, I just want it to look realistic without taking over the drawing
