This sketch was done during the time I was making the first version of my luminaire. This is originally how I was planning on holding my bulb in place.
I dropped my mouse the other day. That's when I thought, "Well, that's kinda funny looking. Ima draw it!"
Metal is actually one of my favorite textures to draw. It took a while, but by layering light pencil strokes, I was able to get the smoothness that exemplifies this aluminum cup (on the outside, anyway). Honestly, it was late so I resorted to a rough hatching for the inner portion of the cup. I plan on going back to fix it.
I also thought it would look cool to outline the glare on the front of the cup....I think I was wrong :(
Spheres are always great for shadow studies, or in this case, eggs.

|Above is a sketch of Beckie Yohn's wood sculpture. I enjoyed the simple contrasting color dynamic that was created through the shape of the piece.|
