Drawing glass: how to Draw a Crystal Ball – Fine Art-Tips


Hello my friends and welcome
to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and
I’m so glad to see you! Today we’ll draw a crystal ball. If you want a perfectly circular shape you
may use a glass, or something like that. With a charcoal pencil we do the darkest tones. And we smudge them with a brush. This brush had some charcoal on it
already, so we can use it for toning. With a kneaded eraser we clean up what went off
the sphere. And we can also pull some reflexions. I’m very sorry, I didn’t press the button
and I didn’t record those reflexions, but don’t worry, I’ll do some more. For the most intense whites
we can use a pastel stick. And to have more control when applying the white,
sometimes is better to use a pastel pencil. I love this! It looks great when you apply
it on toned paper. We smudge with a stump and pull some more lights
with the needed eraser. For the light shadows we use a hard
graphite lead. In this case an H. The complete list of materials for this drawing
is in the information below the video. We do the shadow and this include
an intense light in the middle. With a softer graphite lead, in this case
a 3B, we can reinforce some shadows. Let’s also darken the cast shadow. Some more light… We tweak some last details and it’s ready! Please let me know what
do you think about it. If you enjoy it, please give it a LIKE
and subscribe to my channel. You know where to follow me
and where the links are. And I’ll see you on Tuesday.

  2. Your tutorials and drawing lessons are the most helpfull i found only! You really do a good job in it. And oc youre an amazing artist

    Really love it

  3. You are such an inspiration.I really love to draw during my high school days and my sister said I have potentials.I'm 47 years old now.after watching your videos just 2 days ago when you did the crystal ball,I was so amazed,it was perfect and looks so real crystal ball.today I went to buy drawing papers and pastel pencils because you inspired me to start drawing again after watching your videos.you are such a very good artist.I wanna be like you and as good as you someday.thanks for sharing your talent.

  4. Сначала я совершенно не понял, что это рисунок, потом понял. Очень качественно сделано!

  5. HELLO i am a regular follower of ur page. i want to know what is this white thing u used, i hv primo blanco white charcoal pencil but it does not work on black. p[lzz help

  6. I'm begging for a video that can teach us when to shade lighter and darker. Because I can't understand the cases for shading darker or lighter and that makes a real big problem for shadows with me . thank you.

  7. In most of the videos, you explain why you are doing each step. In this video on how to draw a glass ball, you just tell what pencil or eraser you are using, but nothing about why a shadow is in a particular place or what the light is doing, etc.

  8. What I don't understand is how would you know where to put any shadows on any objects for example clothes and their folds and light reflections like in this?
