Great work! If I can give some feedback it would be to try one of these again, but this time trying to align the rotation of the cube as closely as you can to the rotation of the finger section / palm. I think that will make your hand look even cooler and closer to the reference! I added a rough sketch of what I mean next to yours. Even though I did speed run this drawing a bit, and reduced the accuracy of what I'm trying to convey, I hope you can still see a bit of what I'm talking about! Again, awesome work!

Here's my Level 1 and Level 2. I intend to do another one after the critique, but this was quite a bit trickier than anticipated. I struggled quite a bit with the overlapping forms, didn't want to do unrealistic cubes in the sense that they would be "inside" one another, but that left me with some big gaps that shouldn't be there. I think I didn't do too bad, but would love some feedback!

That's really difficult! i need more practice!

Man, those are really good. I think conforming it too much to a box is almost harder than having some flex in the boxes, great work!

Hi Marco, great course. Wish I had an instructor as clear when I was in school. Anyhow, you refer to brushes included with the course that you use, I am not sure where to get a hold of them. Is there a link?

Sorry that no one got to you! The download for the brush pack is in the main course link https://www.proko.com/course/the-color-survival-guide/overview

I learned so much from this lesson! This was so much fun. I tried to paint a different light source and different colours to apply the lesson rather than copy the result. Was this successful? Is the light source correct? Do the colours retain harmony? Any and all feedback appreciated.

I think the colours still retain harmony, but maybe they could be pushed a tad further, using the hard light method he described!

Not drawing related, just wanted to give a shout out to the music selection. This is the second time I ended up doing a Shazam in the middle of a lesson, and the music that got me this time was Moment, by Jones Meadow. Came for the learning, stayed for the bangers

Very useful explanation! I so far only practised with the boxes and tried to fit a head in, but this is much clearer. Will try that next!

Did exactly the same! Also going to try doing the references I didn't do next :)

2 minutes in, I felt like I had taken the portrait drawing part a bit too seriously and missed the mark of the exercise so I did the lvl 1 assignment again. While I can't say that I'm an eminence at this, it's not a very hard exercise if you know what you're looking for.

Nice work! There are some that feel like they aren't converging like a box would (namely 6, 9 and 14) but you nailed the bounding box aspect of the head, that was a bit challenging for me personally

Good work! Looks like you’re trying out several iterations of the same reference, which is always cool.

I attempted to make it rectangular but was limited by the loomis method.

Hey there! I think you might have tried to do two different exercises. In this case, it might have been better to try to draw the head inside of the box, rather than a full head with the Loomis method. Some of the lines in the box don't really converge the way they should, and doing the head inside the box makes mistakes like those more clear. But this is a really tricky project!

Here is my level 1 assignment. Some of these were tricky as I kept wanting to go for 3-point perspective due to the shape of the jaw with the downward-looking poses.

Felt the same way, some of mine ended up 3 point perspective because of some angles. Nice work!

Hi There! 11 and 9 to start!

Hi there! This is a very tricky project (and number 9 is one of trickiest of the bunch), so I think you might have tried to do too much in one go. I would suggest you try to nail down the angles of the box first, and see if it feels right to you. When you think you have a solid starting point, then try to do the level 2 part of the exercise. In this case, there are some key issues that are present in the perspective of the box, that make other mistakes in the level 2 section more noticeable. I attached an image to make it more clear than in writing! Hope this helps, keep at it!

My initial attempt seemed to have too many curved lines, so the next drawing, I forced myself to pretty much only use straight lines to convey the structure.

Hey there! I have some critiques in some boxes, where I feel there's some perspective lacking. Looking at the original images, there are some angles that feel off, like 14 for example. If you try to converge some of the lines, they aren't converging to the same point, like in the image below. Hope this helps you!

I'm worried I didn't do the 2nd part correctly.

Perhaps, I think you forgot to place the box to guide your level 2 part. I'm not sure, but Stan will make a video to clear that up!

Hi everyone! I am Phil. This is first time to summit assignments. I get a problem. it's tough to draw a perspective map of picture11 in free hand. Quite confusing, even drawing it on tablet. Do I analyse it wrongly?

I think the plotting you have on top of the face on 11 is pretty accurate, I think it's the hair that might be throwing you off. Good work with the boxes!

done with the assigment, time to watch the demo to see. im not really sure if I was just drawing the countors or the planes, maybe will make anothers more simplified to really try to focus on that (letters are the order I made the exercises)

I think you handled the plane changes quite well to be honest! And great to see you self-reviewing by plotting the box in the reference itself, I think that's the best way to check yourself. There's still soe room to improve, I think the foreshortened lady looking down is the hardest of the bunch, and you may have seen some angles in the box that might not have been there. Great work!

@drawingdodo
Here are my entries! I'm still going to be doing the rest of them, but after seeing the level 1 and 2 videos to improve even more! As always, critiques are welcome!
