The crystal ball says that you are going to be a great artist!

Today I’ll teach you to draw a crystal or glass sphere in third dimension. You’ll learn to draw transparent and circular body’s, applying different technics of shadowing and illumination. Also, you’ll learn to create the sensation of volume and the illusion that the sphere would pop out of the paper.

Black lead holder: H lead
Red lead holder: 3B lead
Kneaded eraser Prismacolor
Soft, synthetic brush
Paper: Strathmore Artist Charcoal 100% cotton, twelve tints (green)
