Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist, and today we're going to work on drawing a chrome object. So we're going to work on a ball today, just something nice and easy. So when you draw a chrome object, the most important things to consider are the colors that you're using to accentuate what kind of material it is. Chrome is generally this sort of grayish, silver color, and then it really picks up the light and the dark reflections to give it a shape. So in this particular example we'd have like a big piece of white, just do these big kind of white pieces where the light is shining on it very dramatically, and then maybe put a little bit of black. So basically, like these pieces are going to be white, very, very white, and this would be white, very white, where the light is directly hitting it. And then the rest would be in this sort of shadow, so pretend that this is now black, so these lines here kind of show this black around there, and then we'd put a little bit more white at the bottom again. So basically depending on where your light source is coming from and what colors you're using, is really going to be how you're going to accentuate that chrome. So for example, if you wanted to do a block, it be the same kind of idea, maybe this is a smooth, very smooth block, because it's made of this like melted chrome, it's the same kind of idea, you'd want to have these different pieces where the light shines, and then the rest around that light are black and gray, don't forget to color some pieces in there, mix a little bit of gray and silver in too. And that is how you draw a chrome object.
