I know this assignment was specified to only measure the eyes, mouth, and nose on the subject used… I went a little overboard on this one and decided to do a full render. I realize there are many problems with this piece, but I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve learned enough from this one and need to let it go. Any critique is appreciated. I know he’s got a turkey neck, btw. ;)

Don't be so hard on yourself. Even if the proportions could be polished, you captured the likeness of the subject very well. I also like the cyan blue rim light he has on the nose altough the one on the shadow side should be more discreet. For the mouth, you could add some darker halftones in the interior to showcase more of the roundness of the lips and add a bright highlight to indicate the moisture of the lips. Good job.

Here is the 1st half of the poses. I like how some of them turned out. I struggled a bit with how to make the feet look OK, and I don't think I succeeded. I also should try to get a better line quality for these.

Hello. The most important thing in this exercise is the flow of the rythms and these look like a success for me. For the feet, I usually just use the envelope shape of the whole foot and dont worry about the anatomy for this. You also used very few lines but captured the action of the pose very well. I still struggle with simplifying and add too much unnecessary information. Also usually in this step, you should use confident strokes with very light pressure since the goal is to add structure on top later with more defined lines. It's just an exercise so it's ok to use hard strokes, Just something to keep in mind. I think you did a good job with these.

Before I watched this demo video, I really didn't know how to draw some seal lions' photos. They are cute but lack of details. So I picked some a little more complex ones to draw, thinking they are easier to handle. Now I have more ideas. Thank you! These two photos below are the most simplified and hard to draw I ever thought.

Hello. It's a good effort but I think you sometimes struggle a bit do add a dynamic flow to your lines when the seal is laying flat on the floor and some poses come out stiff as a result like the 3rd and 4th. Try using more asymmetry to guide the viewers eye through the gesture. Also make sure to warmup your hand first to improve your line quality. I can see some scratchy lines, particularly the 6th and 7th, and it makes the lines look insecure. What I do is exagerate the gesture up to the point it where it doesnt break the form and nature of the pose. This will make the drawing more dynamic but requires a shape design that supports the exagerated gesture. It's very important though that you watch out for line quality. It makes a drawing look worse regardeless of how well you master the other fundamentals. Use your elbow and do the ghosting technique Stan demonstrated to get a nice clean strokes. You'll see the difference is night and day.

Level 2 assignments, took my time with designing the shapes and making sure the line weight is informative. I feel like the latter ones look better as I got the hang of it.

Did shape manipulation of an elephant and octopus. I think I managed to convey different personalities to each subject but I think I could have gone a bit more wild with the shape variety.
