EDM #143 -- draw a herb or spice


I haven't done an EDM challenge for ages, but thought doing a sketch of a nutmeg would be a real challenge! You'd need hours and hours to do something like this justice, but this was a fun quick sketch.

Here is a dumb question: I have never seen a nutmeg other than being in my spice jar, how big is it? Great pencil work and so good to see you back here.

This is a very challenging thing to draw David. You're right, it could take while to really put the detail into it. You've done a fabulous job on showing how intricate the little knobs are!

I love nutmeg, especially the pattern inside when you grate it too. Hmm...now I'll have to dig my jar of nutmeg out and see what I can do with one.

I think you have done it justice, Dave. I really like the detailed side fading off into the sketch. Excellent.
