Just a quick simplified version of the skull. Will try and improve at later date.

I'm glad I took this course, as it is forcing me to get out of my comfort zone. That being said, drawing the laces of the shoes felt like TORTURE. Will try level 2 later.

In Proko's video on lines he pointed out that when drawing you should not put a line down before imagining or visualizing what you will draw. I've drawn frequently since 12 years old, and I had never considered or practiced this. I have always drawn what I see or want without thinking, oftentimes needing to erase or redo. I can faintly see what I want to draw, but I can't actually visualize it ON the paper or in front of me.. Since Proko has pointed this out I have become conscious of the difficulty I have for visualizing what I want to draw, and it definitely keeps me from full potential in my sketches. Is there anything I can do to combat this?

I never thought of simplification when drawing, so this was quite challenging. The first pear was done without watching Proko's demo, and it turned out quite flat and doesn't really feel 3d. The second pear is after Proko's demo. It looks a bit more dynamic, but I had a hard time getting the light part of the pear right. I decided to draw the portrait without looking at Proko's demo, because I believe I would subconsciously copy Proko's simplification instead of observing the shapes and values on my own. Critiques would be appreciated!

Quick question. I'm planning on mostly working with pencils, one large sketchbook for home and one smaller one for work/other places. However, I would also like to try using inking mediums as I have some microbon pens laying around my room. Should I get another book specifically for inking or is it okay to alternate mediums in one sketchbook?

Hello. I honestly have no idea what level I should practice at, as it seems like a do quite well in certain aspects of the fundamentals and absolutely horrendous in others. For some reason I found the pears more annoying to draw and shade than the guy (although I had my fair share of trouble and had to rewatch proko's video on the Loomis method--which was very handy by the way). I'm definitely looking forward to learning perspective, textures, and shading/rendering certain types of reflections and materials as these are my most un-skilled areas in drawing. Also sorry for the bad photo quality idk what I'm doing there. Critiques are welcome and appreciated!

Hi all. I've been following Stan's lessons loosely for the past couple years or so, and I figured it is time to get serious in my studies from now on. Here are some 60 second gesture studies (referenced from line-of-action.com). Critique would be much appreciated. :) P.S. I had to trace over the lines because my camera could not pick them up that well.
