I took another stab at the VR Girl and this time I did manage to finish it (except the "target" ring she's moving towards, I just can't do those ellipses!) Having now seen the demo video, I realize I captured far more detail than I really should've. All in all a pretty frustrating drawing, but drawing it in 3 sessions was a good idea!
Personally I found this assignment very frustrating. Especially the VR girl. I just don't feel like I am ready to tackle drawings of such complexity and scale yet, with so many proportions to consider. The issues with proportions in the VR girl are so numerous that I just get too frustrated. I personally would've appreciated something a bit more simple to get the core concept (sketching) across rather than having such complex drawings. Especially a hand? I mean come on... everyone knows hands are very frustrating and challenging even for very experienced artists. I dunno maybe it's me.
I found this one trickier than I thought. I based myself on Pear 2; rather than the first pear. I find myself struggling not to try more organically shaped lines. I also really found it difficult to do the values. I'll give it another shot after watching the demo vids.
