This was fun, had a warmup with just level 1 bloxes, then did the level 2. Some done from imagination, some from reference. I'll be adding these to my regular practice!

Love Jeremy! His YT channel is a treasure trove. Very happy to see him continuing (even if partially) on this course!

My mannequinization attempts, line control is something I still have lots to improve on.

I also have the question asked by Chris… only female references or male too?

It's only the female model from the preview, and photos are not censored in the bundle.

These were intended to be 5 min, but ended up ~10 min each. Fun!

I probably misunderstood the assignment but I had fun learning like this. I started with gesture and tried to add more detail and find the landmarks. I'll reiterate over this practice when I look at Stan's examples in next three videos, didn't want to look forward before trying it this way.

Here's my attempt, I wanted to push myself a bit by positioning the observer in the corner of an arcade room. It was fun! The right side of the room that's further away from the vanishing point was hard, my free-hand lines were bending a lot. I need to practice longer, straight lines more.

I found myself getting lost in the detail and proportions too often and forgetting about the rhythm, will have to repeat a few times with more refernece for practice!

It's really nice to see the lessons coming together, like being able to apply various line weights to emphasize different things, or at least trying too! I feel like I started with dynamic shapes and then slipped into accurate and trying to be interesting by adding extra detail to one side of the seals lying down. Also wish I hadn't erased so many of the initial lines I put down, just got to do more...

Nice work! One thing that really helped me was keeping in mind what Stan said in the video regarding paying attention to asymmetry. It really helps with defining a dynamic flow. Also, exaggerating on curves (C, S) where possible enhances the feeling of movement.

More fun than expected! Relly enjoyed going back and forth, erasing and changing lines slightly to get a feeling of dynamism and flow. Attempted lvl 2 as well.

This was probably the scariest and most fun assignment so far. I went with soemthing from my favourite artist's, Todd Lockwood's sketch book. It was fun figuring out the hierarchy of importance and how he uses the lines, some fast some deliberate - haven't noticed it before!

I think I maybe went too dark on hinerarchy of importance, but pleased overall.

I couldn't decide on the animal, so I chose my kids favorite animals; a bunny and an owl. And tried to create a mix of two, an owlbunny. :) I used one page to try to plan out the mix, and the second page for a full page sketch. The head was a bit difficult to pull off, but I'm feeling good about how it turned out.

Tried to keep it loose, as instructed, probably could've been a bit more relaxed. I did notice more loose lines bu the time I got to the third drawing, though! Went a bit too bit with the VR girl but decide to keep at it.
