Woo-hoo! I'm on time! :) I think it was the hardest assignment so far. I got very insecure and shaky (hence my poor line quality in here; some lines got a bit "rounded" - oopsie). I especially struggled with the beard and lips positioning. The angle was so hard to figure out! Still, I'm happy with the result :) I'm also happy that I realized that I should practice proportions a lot. Thanks Stan for the great lesson!

Woohoo! I managed! Here's a master study of a work by Audra Auclair https://www.instagram.com/audraauclair/ It was my first time doing a master study - I wasn't sure how to approach it. Audra's sketch is dynamic, but very graphic, and has these beautiful tiny cross-hatchy lines. I tried to capture these features, but I think I didn't manage to do so yet... Would be so grateful for a feedback :) Still, I feel like I've learned a ton and I plan to do more master studies soon :). Maybe I'll post them in the comments later on!

This was challenging But fun to draw from imagination. That is one thing that I want to be better at so its good for me to start practicing allready. Warm up loose sketch of Donkey kong and assignment sketch from imagination of my armadillo-lady-character.

So lovely children's book style characters! You say the final big sketch is stiffer than the small ones. I think it may be because you drew the final lady armadillo sitting completely straight while on the smaller one she is a bit leaning forward - which makes her look a bit more relaxed, less stiff.

This was fun :) I decided to design a simple fox character (who doesn't love foxes?). I also wanted to practice more fluid lines and dynamic poses (hence I looked at some more dynamic-looking animal illustrations). I really enjoyed the sketching process, and I would be happy to receive feedback / thoughts :)

Woohoo! Here are my loose sketches! I'm still struggling with line confidence - some lines are a bit wobbly. I also think that drawing hands, including the robotic ones, makes me a bit anxious ;) Will be super happy to hear your thoughts and feedback! :)

Here are the boots. I have a feeling I should be more loose and quick, maybe in the next try :)

woohoo! Finally I managed also the level 2! Seems like I drew a bit too round and short face, and my shape design requires some extra work; perhaps I should have planned the shapes of the shadows better. But for a first try it seems decent enough :) I think I will try the assignment again after watching the demo. If anyone has any comment / critique, I would be happy to hear it! Cheers! :)

I wasn't going to try level 2 as it looks very difficult but I just pushed myself in the end. I was going to give up at one point but I managed in the end! I hope more others try as well. :)

Wow! I love your style, so expressive! I'm also very scared of giving the portrait a shot, but maybe I should try it anyway :)

I took another go at this (after doing the pear and the portrait) and drew my favourite fruit the Pomegranate.

I love the shape design, it's so elegant! and thanks for the inspiration, I think I'll also give a pomegranate a try :)
