still life class drawing

He sells seashells on the seashore.
Finally this week's lesson in advanced drawing workshop is something i could do and particularly liked... using a soft texture or feel in a drawing. What does that mean.. soft texture? I interpreted it as gentle strokes, light shadows and curved lines... AND making it pretty (even boys). Like deliberately feminizing his facial features into ambiguous androgyny.

A silly looking picture taken by my mischievous friend using her i-phone. Speaking of which, i got a good deal for an i-pod touch from my ex-roomie who's interning in Apple. So i won't consider getting an i-phone until they upgrade to a decent camera quality which was always the major turn off for me.

She sells seashells on the seashore,
The shells that she sells are seashells I’m sure.
So if she sells seashells on the seashore,
I’m sure that the shells are seashore shells.

Hi Wani! Now i prefer pictures that are true to real life cos it just seems more honest that way. That's what camera technology is working towards but somehow trends seem to go in the opposite direction now. Ironic isn't it?
