Drawing class: Barrel, Cube, Treasure chest

While doing these I ran into an issue where I wanted to put in some fine details into the objects but was drawing a blank / had no idea where to start. After looking at some images of Megaman fan art for inspiration, I found some ways to make the objects look more like technology pieces and a little more interesting.

Also, the second image is of some fine-liner pens that I bought off of Amazon that are nice for doing outlining and adding definition.


That’s a masterful execution of shading! The dimensionality in your objects really stands out.


Those look great! I really like the box in the top left corner and the way you showed texture on the barrel with minimal lines. thanks for the pen recommendation!

Thank you! Can’t wait to check out some of your work as well. The pens are pretty great as well, but I get nervous using them because any mistakes made are seriously affect the piece. Do you know of any good colored pencils or perhaps watercolor paints for coloring?
