Pencil Sharpener Drawing

"Adobe Ideas", "ipad Drawing", "digital art", drawing, painting, illustration, "Boston 55", "pencil sharpener", "Boston Ranger", "Keys to Drawing"
I've been working through some of the exercises from the Keys to Drawing on my ipad. This exercise is Project 1F – Mechanical Objects. He suggests drawing a sewing machine, egg beater or an old rotary pencil sharpener. I drew a vintage Boston 55 pencil sharpener, which is solid metal and will last a lifetime. The X-Acto Ranger 55, which is the current version, is solid black instead of chrome and beige.

The reflections were the fun part of this drawing and I like the sketchiness of the line work, especially around the crank.
