Drawing glass: how to Draw a Crystal Ball – Fine Art-Tips


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and
I’m so glad to see you! Today we’ll draw a crystal ball. If you want a perfectly circular shape you
may use a glass, or something like that. With a charcoal pencil we do the darkest tones. And we smudge them with a brush. This brush had some charcoal on it
already, so we can use it for toning. With a kneaded eraser we clean up what went off
the sphere. And we can also pull some reflexions. I’m very sorry, I didn’t press the button
and I didn’t record those reflexions, but don’t worry, I’ll do some more. For the most intense whites
we can use a pastel stick. And to have more control when applying the white,
sometimes is better to use a pastel pencil. I love this! It looks great when you apply
it on toned paper. We smudge with a stump and pull some more lights
with the needed eraser. For the light shadows we use a hard
graphite lead. In this case an H. The complete list of materials for this drawing
is in the information below the video. We do the shadow and this include
an intense light in the middle. With a softer graphite lead, in this case
a 3B, we can reinforce some shadows. Let’s also darken the cast shadow. Some more light… We tweak some last details and it’s ready! Please let me know what
do you think about it. If you enjoy it, please give it a LIKE

and where the links are. And I’ll see you on Tuesday.
