Hello everyone! I just wanted to share a quick thought I had on finding new shapes. This worked especially well whenever I felt stuck or uninspired. All I did was find small nooks in my sketchbook (spaces that resulted between drawings) and I tried to fill those with a design. Most of the time, these empty nooks had such a random shape that the results ended up being quite interesting (like in the example below with a horizontally stretched triangle for a monkey head). I know this idea is nothing revolutionary, but for me, it’s a good one to keep in the back of the mind when doing these exercises. Also, thanks for the demos! These really help a lot!
Well, I didn't think I was going to try Level 2 project. I struggle with fear of failure. But thankfully we have Proko! I have a lot to work on and to improve, but overall I am surprised with the results. I am reading 'The Practicing Stoic' by Farnsworth and central to the theory is that we react to our judgements and opinions not the the things themselves. So today, I am choosing to react not to my self-criticism but to the feeling of accomplishment for attempting Level 2 project. Have a great day!
If anyone is interested in a study group, I can start a discord server were we can follow along with the course as the lessons come out. Comment below and I can shoot you an invite. *Edit* Sorry, not as discord savvy as I thought I was. I'll need you to friend request me, and then I can send you the invite link (has to be friends only). My code: Other Barry#8117
