Exercise 9: An Objective Drawing

For this exercise I was asked to pick from a list of items and visually explore its characteristics such as texture and function, I thought the shoe would afford me a good range of exploration.
I chose a converse High Top style as it has different materials canvas hard moulded plastic and metal eyelets.

I varied the line weight to describe depth and tried to sculpt out the creases buy following the contours of the material, the harder parts I created a thicker harder line and for the canvas I tried to keep it thin to describe its ability to crease and flex.
Although the brief didn’t ask for it to be coloured I was curious what colour and tone would add to the image so I added some.

Linear drawing, trying to convey the characteristics of the materials
I added some colour to see if It would further describe the material.
