Single vs. Multiple Objects

Slow progress on the objects and still life tool continues. Based on your requests, I added a secondary category called "quantity" that its photos can be sorted by. It can either be "multiple objects" or "single objects." I then went through to mark all of the existing photos whether they showed multiple or single images, and finally uploaded 13 starter photos of single basic shapes.

Keep those suggestions coming, as you can see, I am taking action based on them!








Please can we pick which shapes we are working with? and draw from pictures that have singles or multiples of our chosen selected shapes?

How should images with multiple different shapes be handled? Like if you select multiple pyramid, does it include any image with pyramids even if it also has cubes?

I’ve really loved all the improvements so far! Another potential challenge suggestion I would have would be glass objects or stone/gemstone/crystal objects. I think things with rich color and some transparency will help add a lot of variety to the tool. But that might also be best for down the line when more of the basics are fleshed out…

What about action figures and other related toys and statues?

Hi! I've been using the single object image feature along with multiple object images for my daily warm up, and while I think they add nice change of pace in between the multiple object images, I feel that there isn't much of a challenge in drawing singular shapes? As I generally focus on form/perspective I find that I finish drawing well below 30 seconds, so in the future I don't think there's a need to add more singular object images. I may be wrong in this assessment as I don't focus on rendering details, but that was my general take away from my warm ups.

I suspect it has to do with what the person's goals are and what they are studying? I will do one or two more batches of singular objects just so that there isn't a paltry 13 in the category, but from there I will be aiming for more visually interesting still lifes again.
