Combining Spheres with Cubes
could someone show me how to combine the lower sphere with the cube.
Top one no problem, but the lower one, i just cant figure it out!
Thank you in advance,
Maybe like this? Is this "correct"?

@fritz Hi, it doesn't look right. Imagine that you have an apple and you need to connect it to a box. How would you slice it, so there is no space between apple and the box? In you connections there is a lot of spaces. Good luck!
Hej thx for your answer well that's what I can't imagine. Do you mean on the bottom line make the circle rounder? A quick sketch would be much appreciated
@aska and I think on my very last image it looks quite right, I just have to work on the roundness?!
You have to visualize the place where the sphere meets the surface of the cube: this is always going to be an ellipse or a section of ellipse - small sketch below. The "V-shaped" indentation that you see when the sphere strides one of the corners can only be at the corner itself - yours is not in the right place. It helps to draw a raster on the faces of the cube to help visualize the surface in your mind. I would also try to draw more precisely in general - your cubes are not very "cubic" ;-). That makes visualizing the intersection even more difficult.
These exercises are always interesting and really help with drawing!
Oh wow thank you, so i will have a look
i just did a quick resketch of your sketch to get a visual feel. Thank you so much.
I know my cubes are not so cubic, and my circles are not superround.
I almost broke apart of my perfectionism so i decided just to let go and draw more losely. I want to improve, but at the same time i have to be careful not to be too hard to myself. But i'm drawing every day because its fun to me.
So here is my resketch. I will work on the details now. I really wanna master the art of drawing. I'm very thankful therefor that you made this quick sketch for me.
This is the answer i was looking for. Now it makes totally sense.
And your artwork is amazing by the way!
Have a nice evening,
P. S. it could be, that i'll have more questions about combining shapes of different kind
Happy to help - and these exercises are good for me too!
