It should be called "How to draw this paper towel I am holding just outside the frame."
|Boomer The Dog |
It's a good skill to be able to draw everyday objects, it's not easy for lots of people. I draw, and I don't think I've ever had a reason to do a paper towel or cloth, but I have done clothes, and you need an eye for folds, lines, shadows.
Evil Homer should probably ring in on this. I agree, she doesn't give very much helpful info, maybe she can't work that clearboard too well, seems like it to me.
Yeah, I think the biggest problem here is her presentation: you can't see what she's doing, the crumpled paper towel she's using as a reference is off the screen, and the colors she picked blend in with her shirt! I think it would have been better had she just laid the towel down on a table, then done the sketch on a piece of paper, right next to it.
You're right about things like towels and cloth; I have to admit, I've never drawn a crumpled paper towel myself, but I have tried hanging cloth and draperies, and they are much harder to drawn than they look! The folds and the shadows beneath each fold are difficult to capture properly. Paper towels would probably be even tougher to draw properly, because if they're crumpled, they usually have some kind of gunk all over them; not only would you have to get the folds right, but you'd also have to get the texture and the weird colors right, too!
You know, I'd really like to see someone paint a still life that features a bunch of gross, crusty paper towels. Do it in, like, a classical still life style; an old wooden table, and on top of it are crumpled paper towels, a bottle of Faygo, a cornucopia filled with Cheetos and Snickers bars, and either an anime figurine or an external harddrive labeled 'Pr0n'.

Good laugh there Homer, but I think that's a good idea, especially for an artist who might be bored of the classic still life they learned and want to try something different. Your scenario would be real for today. If someone just takes the time to draw or paint, there are just so many subjects.
Most today just use photography to capture scenes, even in the mid-1800s that was being done, through a lens that would project a scene on a sheet of paper, which the artist would then trace in and maybe color it. I forgot what that was called, but it was a form of scene copying.
Right, we wouldn't even need her face in the picture at all, set up the camera and work in front of it, for a still life I'd rather see it happening from the artist's perspective.
Maybe this is a contract obligation video, and Jessica is getting paid to finish up a series or something.
You should try drawing a doggie playing with a crumpled paper towel, Boomboom! My dogs used to love crumpled paper towels. CLEAN ones; I never let them play with used paper towels!
... at least, not with my permission. When no one was looking they would occasionally go digging in the trash for dirty ones, which was sort of gross.
One dog in particular absolutely loved snotty tissues. For whatever reason, he thought snoz-rags were delicious.
Maybe don't draw that.
Ummmm HELLO are you guys sleeping?
That's Jessica Delfino. She's made a certain appearance on this site before...
my pussy is magic
Kinda like alantutorial, but not interesting or entertaining.

Human faces are all structurally almost identical yet peoples faces look different to us. Crumpled up balls of paper are all wildly different in their structure yet they all look the same to us.
Bit of an insight to how the mind works.
Boomer The Dog
The mind is definitely tuned to reading faces, it's probably the common structure itself, so you can really see any variations on top of that.
The paper towel would be something that's so variable and random, and such a common object that you don't think about it or need to. The still life artist would be advanced in that way, and notice the features of the common towel.
Looks like a puckered anus to me.
