Thanks for the critique, Stan! Indeed, it was the first time I made this type of stuff from "imagination". As I suffer from aphantasia (a real condition! :D) I was never stepping out of my comfort zone and only drawing from observation, and unfortunately without a clue of what I was doing. I took this course exactly to learn how to draw freely and you gave me great approaches to start with, thanks again, can't wait for the next lessons!

Thanks for the demo, it definitely helped me to create more dynamic compositions than in my critique request.

My last minute assignment. It was pretty hard to imagine it completely without reference!

New ones after watching the demo, for sure it made this "sculpting" approach much clearer to me. And thanks @Gannon Beck for your kind words!

I managed to do few more before the deadline, this time just with boxes (I was trying hard to not imagine pelvis as a trapezoid this time but i found it the hardest part of the whole exercise)

My antipathy for tanks is slightly smaller now. I find doing equal looking ellipses in one row as extra hard.

I'm super happy with the pipe's explanation. Talking about brain farts I've realized I knew that angle intersections thing while I was doing fingers in hands drawings, but this time I made it obviously wrong🫣. Did some sketches along watching the critique, can't wait for next lessons :)

For some reason I'm only seeing the thumbnail of the video (as a photo) and there's no play button for the video itself. Has anyone else had this issue? I've gotten the same error on mac, ipad & iphone.

It was driving me crazy for few hours as I like to watch with subtitles, I was clearing cookies etc and no luck, In any case you can download movie from downloads.

I tend to draw grids to guide me, but I've decided to try this more intuitive approach following demo. Not gonna lie, it was no fun, I like the outcome as a doodle at the end, but I got lost between all those lines several times... 🪢

Stan, thanks for the intuitive Demo. Yeah. You mention 7 mins in that you didn't use a grid and refered to a previous lesson. Don't beat me up, please, but which lesson was that ?

I think it was the X and X-ray tricks :)

Man, this was super hard to do! I did some separate cylinder studies. The tanks where drawn from imagination.

Hello, I've noticed that your left cylinder from separate cylinders is wrong because you started with the wrong box. Since a base for a perfect circle is a perfect square, when we look at it from that angle, it should create a vertical rectangle in perspective, not a horizontal one (that's what happens when we look from the top or bottom). Also, the inside rectangle was constructed wrong, what made the opposite effect of the rule that the further ellipse is always wider than the front one. In a van - the further wheel should be narrower than the close one, that was explained in the X and X-ray tips :)

Honestly, I wouldn't say I like trucks so I made it with no love, will try later to add some ellipsis drawings on other objects as for sure I need to stop ignoring this shape's existence. My biggest issue is that I'm not really sure where the major axis is inside a plane. I find it the easiest to construct them in boxes that are facing me, and then all the rules from the previous lessons are well applied but in a 2/3-point perspective I feel like I'm missing something....

More ellipsis
Reply

I found out I can just construct pipes to train more ellipses, I guess it also discovers my lack of knowledge the most so would be nice to get a critique on this:D

When I spotted a chance for critique, I mistakenly interpreted the assignment, drawing everything in a boxy style, but not literally as single boxes... 😅 However, I like this approach as keeping everything clean is just easier. Did a few more studies in this style (I even matched the next lesson with drawing glasses! ) after the deadline, critique or tips are very welcome :D Can't wait for the lesson about twisting and bending!

It wasn't easy at all! I was trying to do lvl 2 as well but honestly, I felt like a kid in spaghetti, so I'm just gonna keep my head down waiting for the demo 🙇‍♀️

Did exercise inspired by Fabian Ayala post here today. Wanted to add some shapeshifting turn to it, Results not very natural when it comes to animation but it was fun, will try better next time :)

Did new exercise trying to rotate the other way around as I just can't wait for upcoming lesson in 2-point perspective 🙈 First i did what i thought that would work, then i corrected it by finding vanishing points... While facing planes were decent, the not-visible ones were just...bad. I noticed that the vanishing points of more facing me planes are always bit more far away than I would think. At the end animation is great way to learn cause while we might not see mistakes on single work, we see something is realllly off while watching it played :P

Perspective is my main interest in the whole course as here I lack knowledge the most and i found it extremely hard to find sources that do not make it all look like black magic. Can't wait for upcoming lessons!
