EDM draw a bridge challenge



since we did those texture drawings last week i had wanted to try some more but not had time...I used vertical lines to do the first one. This is a bridge that is a skywalk over to the bus depot in Athens GA ....it starts somewhere near the Classic Center parking garage I think...


I took alot of pictures of streetlife and buildings in Athens while i was there...and any and all bridges so that i could do this challenge...
I used my viewfinder to crop the center of this picture which was on my laptop...never printed it out...makes it easier to view the picture when the laptop is sitting upright on the table near you...This was done with a variety of B pencil 2B, 4B, 5B, 6 and 8.




Based on a photo that i took thru a window while i was wandering around the Classic Center looking at the art collection instead of sitting on the hard chair crammed in like sardines at the lecture i was supposed to be at...three hours on that chair was more than i could do...and evidently three hours of doing value studies with just horizontal lines was too much too..not sure this one is done but for now it is DONE!:> I mean have you ever tried to draw a tree or a bush with JUST vertical lines...its NOT easy....

I like your bridge picture and your tree arbor picture. You did a nice job with your line design.
