Thx for the demo, i now know why i dun like my assignment. They are way too intuitive and focus on the hands instead of boxes. The reasoning process is great, n I believe i need to start drawing in a more analytical manner. ellipse, its ellipse, another part to struggle : )

This is my level 2 , dun even know should I do it or not, coz I didn't do well in lvl 1, but I love the challenge. Would love to know what is your approach in doing lvl2, mine is just imagining first and sketching the big palm box til I find the closest to my imagined box. For the finger I just keep in mind abt the X thing. Just in the loop of being discouraged and encouraged...

level 1 heading to level 2. I found my classmates have this spatial awareness to leave the knuckles empty, and I did not do it... Woooo, it s a journey. I also recently watched some of the Scoot Robertson's old videos about line weight, hope I applied them well.

Here is my assignment in these 3 days, day 1 tried to do it without watching the demo, but compared to my day 2 and 3 they are really bad so not showed here, day 2 watched the demo (the last 2 pic) last pic = draw along , not sure wt the mass around the wrist is for the middle pic. day3 watched the critique, tried to treat every mass a box, not sure if it looks good in other eyes, even tried with exaggeration, but it seems bad, would love some critique. Thx for previous friendly advice on drawing ovals but still cannot freehand it ... Could you give me some advice on my drawings? Thank you very much

I suggest you to first open the reference photo (open as original) then you can cross-check with tab instead of scrolling through the pics backand forth

I found myself tilting my head if the poses were tilting. and this always leads to wrong decision of lines' angle. Does anyone have the same problem as me? Also drawing itself is so funnnnnn, i wish i am capable of continuing this passion and drawing different types of stuff when I m getting old

I think if i use the moodboard it would be easier for people to critique, all of them are in the same placement as my drawing. Any advice would be much appreciated, such as form understanding, shape design, line weight, etc.

here is my landmark assignments i found the scapula and the landmarks on the knees are difficult to spot although stan explained it in the assignment demo. Would love some guidance on that. i see some classmate's work included lots of muscle and some simply are just skeletons. i guess my method is more similar to stan's, just get the gesture down first then try to add the landmark as details. The 1st pic is the cleanest gesture that I am now capable of doing, most of them are just messy. Could you please give me some advice on finding landmarks and overall gesture drawing? Thank you

my first attempt start with something simpler a 3/4 view. when I get more familiar with the method I ll try some extreme angle n this is really fun. The 3 d form of the nose confused me not sure wt it is a box or a box plus 2 triangular boxes? I might try both of them see how it ll go. Can’t wait to see Stan demo n my classmates work. I used Procreate to do the study, but when I eyeball from the photo proportions always need some adjustment. Oh also not sure about where the eye socket should start from ie the inward plane sorry for my broken English

These are the heads that i drew. i mainly focus on extreme angles coz i think these are the most difficult to understand the perspective. If you have time to review these, please critique. Thank you very much

try to redo the assignment after relearning the course about gesture n the bean. Been studying in the basic course for a while. Try to see my improvement but I still find myself confused in simplifying the form in some animals like the horse the panther n the cat in certain pose like the first pic top one. I guess it’s because things re getting forshortened? Forms are hidden? Any advice are very much welcome

been practicing wt u taught abt the 2 pt perspective. I found a lot of of difficulties when I tried to convert my 1 pt perspective to 2 pt. the most obvious one is scale and relative sizes of different objects. Choosing the point of view is also critical and I guess I choose the wrong one coz I cannot show everything that I drew in 1 pt on 2 pt. I also drew bunch of cars lately, try to straight everything out but kind of confused about where my line should converge for the smaller details.

Stan, always love your explanation on different subjects , they are really entertaining and easy to absorb . I would say this year is the greatest improvement that I have, on my skills and understanding on artworks as I joined this course. I started learning drawing/art last year and drawing spaghetti until this course comes to my eyes. I learnt some perspective before by watching some youtube video online but i dunno know how to rotate the object while keeping its accuracy(at least close enough) which you mentioned in this video. Also, I am trying to draw from imagination starting from this week, but I always ignore the details in the big shape, would you talk about it in the later session? If anyone have any suggestion on what I am asking, feel free to comment. Thanks y'all.

thank you for the critique in lvl 2 too. I ve been practicing drawing from imagination since the assignment came out. But I am really struggling coz the only thing that I can draw decent is still from reference in my lvl2 assignment. And those ghost in another drawing simply just filled the empty space and practice drawing the head from imagination. Sorry for getting you a neck cramp, lol. I thought if the horizon line is in an angle can create some chaos in the scene. I guess it didn't.... Oh also this two day i try to draw things that are really close to the vanishing point ie drawing small stuffs, but my hand and finger seems to be out of control. Should I even do small drawing?

Thank you for the critique and I should use my ruler to check my lines. Coz I drew these in free hand, my arms just could not draw from certain angles, rotating the page should also be done ... This is the 8 or 9 month since I joined the course, and I just keep doing the line exercise you recommended I guess the the works pay off. And I watched some random youtube video talking about perspective. drawing in general is fun for me but before the course I can only copy instead of trying to understand the reference and the only thing I could draw are just boxes (which I have no idea is right or wrong) from different perspective. I just think it would be weird if the clock is in 1 point instead of 3/2

It has been almost a month since i did the rhythm assignment ( the last two) And I try to add it to my daily drawing routine with 12 poses * 5mins. The first two images is what i did yesterday. I believe I am improving and even try to make up some rhythm. Could someone please tell me wt else to improve based on the latest one? I tried to self critique but I think others view is also important.
