Did somebody say โ€œmessy searching linesโ€โ€ฆ? Guilty as charged. I think thatโ€™s basically because I have no knowledge of building blocks or perspective so I have to keep trying so many different ideas and thatโ€™s extra hard if I donโ€™t use messy searching lines.

I think your sketch would improve very much just by drawing lighter till you are sure of wich lines you want. Digitally maybe using a lighter color at first? Me myself think it is very hard sketching digitally. I sketch on paper first. But thats me that havent learned it yet. And maybe my ipad feels to small for sketching. Btw i like your style. It will be fun to see you improve bye learning more of perspective and other things in the course.

I made a new try after Ive seen the critiques. This time with rhinos. I made studies and drew rhinos after reference first this time. And after that made explorations til I found my character. In the reference pictures the grown up looks tierd and grumpy. And i wanted to do grown up standing in the rain. But in the references the children seem so happy so i wanted to a child character as well. After i got my two characters i started to explore and test different poses till i found something I liked.

Thank you so much for the critique, Stan! ๐Ÿฆ€ You noted that I worry too much about being precise, and that is so true. On my day job I've recieved similar feedback from my supervisors, more than once over the years, saying that they see a little perfectionist in me and reminding me that I don't have to do everything to perfection. It's funny because I never noticed this trait in myself before someone pointed it out. Recognizing it has made many things much less stressfull for me. Now when I'm drawing warm up mushrooms, it feels so relaxed and nice and smooth, but moving on to an exercise I lose some of that and feel... stiff(er). It's funny again, because I didn't make this connection before I watched this critique video. This is going to be incredibly helpful for me with future drawing, thank you!! Also big thank you to all of the community here, I've loved looking at your work and getting inspiration, ideas and encouragement from you ๐Ÿ’•.

Hey, my English is not that good. So I tried to translate my text using 'ChatGPT'. Hope it makes some sense :) I've only done the beginner tasks so far, but I found the advanced task so interesting that I wanted to try it out at least once. For the first image, I chose a goldfish. It looks like I dressed the fish in pieces of cloth. I was very lost in the design process and much of what I drew is quite illogical, but I had a lot of fun during the process. I also tried some other animals. With the otter (second picture) I tried to pay more attention to creating a nice overall picture and to draw my lines more clearly. After all the attempts, I realized that I became more relaxed while drawing. The mouse is my last drawing. Before I started looking for reference pictures, I had a clear idea that the mouse should be an "adventure" or at least fit into that theme. When I made a sketch with a mouse with one eye closed, I immediately had the association with the character "Guts" from the manga series "Berserk" by the artist "Kentaro Miura" (an absolutely outstanding manga! Unfortunately, I cannot recommend it without reservations because its dark and explicit content traumatized me a bit at the time. But from my point of view, if you can handle it, it's the best manga for "Dark Fantasy" genre.) Although I know that many proportions are not correct, I am surprised how much I like the result. I see good progress in my work and understand how practicing with the previous drawings affects my current skills. It is very rewarding and motivating for me to notice this. Please write your critiques. I am very grateful for your opinions.

I think crocodiles / alligators are fun. They appear rough on the outside but I love to think they have a surprisingly gentle soul. I attached reference images, some study sketches and one "final" drawing.

Thanks for the classmate who uploaded the cat's photo to #14 days challenge#. Sorry I can't remember your name. Your cat photo is so funny, I couldn't help myself drawing a picture for him or her.

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.

After I send my assignment I see that the gesture on the final big sketch is stiffer than the small ones.

Hahah i was actually attempting to draw a axelotle at first. And also used some of the reference you appearently also found. But i had a hard time making something of my own from it because they allready look so cartoonish. You did a good Job.

I took on a new simplifying from observation project. This time I took my time with the lay in and constructed the face using only straight lines. I didn't make a terribly detailed map for every single shadow shape, but filled them in as I moved from one value to the next and tried my best to keep the shapes clear. I was very happy to find that I could apply to this drawing everything I've learned on this course so far! I'm starting to feel more confident with lines, comfortable with different pencils, and my entire thinking process when starting is different. Better organized, perhaps. Very excited to learn more! As soon as I took a picture of this drawing, I saw many things I should revisit... Tthe self-analyzing-hour after completing an assignment is something I've come to enjoy a lot. Funny thing I notice is I tend to draw a face too long. Somehow it turns out stretched taller than the reference, and more narrow. I don't know if that happens because I draw on flat, horizontal table surface. Will see once I get a drawing table I can adjust, in a couple of months :D

Nice! You will improve fast this way! Using and practicing all the things you ve learned and analysing after every drawing. Looking at what could be better and then redo the excersice ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Yes it can be it. I also draw things too long on flat surfices. To some hours later see that what i thought i draw wasnt what i actually draw due to the perspective. I use a drawing table. Totally worth it. On this drawing what stands out to me is that the chin is too big both too long and the angle is forward instead of backward. Keep on like this ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Day 6/14 I went WAY out of my comfort zone today and drew a car. I am horrible at drawing vehicles and was hoping I could get some critiques and tips for how to improve. Please donโ€™t hold back, I really want to get better in this area of drawing.

28:40 oh, I also thought C curves should resemble a C more and that the first one still false under "straight line" even if a bit bendy. All those others, I didnt even think that could be C curve and that they are supposed to be this versatile. Makes sense, but I thought the lines are supposed to resemble C a bit more :D

Oh no i fell into the snowman effect trap. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ And I have heard you talk about that so many times in the anatomy course. Thank you for the critiques I will focus on getting variation in my curves. Oh so first pictures were actually better that the daylight ones. But I have got my self a daylight lamp for artists now so I hope it will be better photos from now on.
