Crimson Prismatic Beauty by syringe-love Crimson Prismatic Beauty by syringe-love
This I drew for it's crystalline properties. I filled the vessel half way with water, then added a deep red food dye, even though I am working monotone, it gave me enough information to create a certain depth and richness within the glass walls. My favourite part is the prism at the top, the mathematical light refraction was recreated as close as possible using a variety of alternately oriented triangles of varying tones. A successful drawing, the actual body of the bottle is a little askew, but I don't use a ruler, so what I lose in dimensional accuracy, I make up for in relative realism.

How can you only have one comment! I have to agree that the perspective is a little skewed but that just adds 2 the character of the piece. A round of applause for that effort I think!

Whoa, amazingly shaded with great realistic texture. I really like the reflection of the top. Looks realistic. I have to agree on your description, the top is the best part with the bottle, and perspective is a little off. If I ad been an art teacher you would get 4+ or 5 (where 6 is the best).
