Day 5 and 6 Spent more time generating ideas for the drawing on day 5. Day 5: Use common Chinese instruments as the theme. A guy could play SUONA to summon the soul of each chinese instrument and casually walk on the street. He probably would get caught if it is in the real world, cuz Suona is such a noisy instrument that you either get addicted to it or hate it like any Karen that you ve faced in real life. Day 6: After watching the latest critique in the drawing basic course, try to improve my line quality and cross contour. Mainly focused on accuracy.

Day 4 Cannot come up with a story for a log cabin, try to play with some composition here. Just lines for background drawing is exhausting but worth the try. Every day is a big step out of my comfort zone. Stan, plz do these challenges more

Day 1 - Fire Hydrant. First one is the cleaned-up version. Second one is the messy version with all my construction lines.

Day 1----------- The place where I am living has a different shape of a Fire Hydrant. It s cool to know that for me. ANTs were fighting for a fire hydrant out of nowhere. Maybe the top of the fire hydrant has something they want...

Here are my attempts, try to do some interesting shapes and i have so much fun. Definitely need some critique on the shape design and cross-contour. I imagined there was a world where ginger (wo)men could grow their own weapons from the bumps. Ginger fighting with Ginger just to get ingredients for their meal, how ironic is that, lol. Hope I did a good job this time.

Here is my attempt on all levels. Really struggling in drawing the cross contour of the giraffe n tried twice, still not sure about the cross contour of muscle form although it sounded easily understandable in the last lesson. i will continue to practice the concept after the critique.

try to do something to apply the newly learned knowledge. the bouncy ball and a 1-arm defender. Not sure if the perspective of the bouncy ball is right or not coz i try to imagine where i am at to view the motion. Cant wait for the upcoming project, yeah

Thx for the critique video. Actually, I haven't finished reading the whole fun with pencil coz I am stuck at the exaggerated pose page, haven't a hard time understanding why the exaggerated pose looks so much more fun. So far, I like the most for the easy-following guide on creating characters by attaching different blobs on the face. I copied some of the drawings then tried to create my own. @Stan Prokopenko You mentioned a few times on difference between intuitive people and logical people in drawing. As a logical person, i am too afraid to break rules, do you have any exercise to mitigate the anxiety? Or the question is a bit too early to think about as a beginner?

Watched the tutorial and wasn't quite sure if I understood this correctly. Want to know if I'm on the right path. Truth be told I've done these box people exercises a few times and drawing the blob is more unintuitive than jumping straight to the box for me. Did I misunderstand the tutorial? Am I entirely wrong? or is it more of a comfort thing? Sorry for the overlapping forms, I rushed this and miscalculated how much space I had.

Dude your box is so gesture, the line control while maintaining the perspective... damn

It may be a bit weird for my brain, but I found your drawing has so much charm for the thick dark line and the boxes seem fine to me

Same as other, still cannot believe it s only half of the course. For this project, I am not sure what the purpose is initially. I assume it's getting into organic shape but in perspective. I drew 2 robots and 1 bulky man. Drawing the blobs is kind of useful, but maybe a bit counterintuitive. It s still fun doing these especially after I read Andrew Loomis's Fun with Pencil. It opens a whole new world for me to draw from memory/imagination, instead of rigidly focusing on drawing purely from reference.

thx for the critique. The cars are just happy-accident, it is not my intention to draw with extreme convergence as it is usually easier to freehand it. I am trying to draw an almost parallel line for the initial box. Glad it looks good. The critique is useful as always and now I kind of know how the perspective of ellipse works. But the weird thing is that I keep drawing the ellipse as stan taught and the ellipse kind of reversely tells me my square in perspective is off. Is it reasonable to do such reverse engineering?

Excuse me Mr. Teacher .. didn't you tell us to make it in 3 point perspective? Also ... why do I feel like the proportions of your boxes are a bit ... wonky? ^^
