an attempt to represent glass and liquid's light-refracting properties. I had no refernce except the Shiseido bottle in my hand. the mirror and ledge isn't real...I don't have a ledge. I wanted sunlight to stream in from the right...I wanted highlights from the right/read of the sketch. the ledge top...purple...wasn't intentional. I wanted a contrasting colour, easier to see. Mix feeling about this... atleast I learned something, right? DRAW or DIE!

a few suggestions:

1. avoid writing all over your sketches...notes are good, of course, but don't write all over the actual art!

2. use said reference pic, don't just talk about it :)

3. drawing in vast quanitities in itself isn't going to get you anywhere very fast. As admirable as your "draw or die" approach is, the best way to improve is to listen to to feedback given to you and to act upon them. :)

Thanks and sorry, I won't do more than 1 a day. I got too carried away. I'll keep down the scribbles on the pic.
