I love viewing sketches other people do of machinery, autos, etc. I sit there thinking............no way could I ever do anything like that. Too complicated trying to sort through all the lines and curves.
Well, I must have been in the right frame of mind to actually give it a try with this piece of machinery that picks up hay bales.
When I first started this, I felt a little overwhelmed wondering where to start. I ended up starting with the metal arms in front and worked my way towards the right, down and back to the left. And as usual, I misjudged placement of my starting point resulting in the bracket arms (or whatever you call them) being shorter than they should be.
And tires.....................ellipses...................Arghhh!!. I try to concentrate on just capturing the shapes and curves but I can actually feel myself slipping trying to put down what I 'think' I see rather than what's actually there. An area I really need to work on.
Although much can be improved upon, I do feel good about the fact I actually stepped outside my comfort zone and gave this a try.
