I know you teach a lot about simplifed geometric forms to build up more complex objects and creatures. But how should one aproach the point where the structure is laid in and it's time to make it more complex and add detail?
Hello Irshad! I can't tell you enough how Drawabox has helped and is helping me improve my drawing skills, and I'm very thankful for all the great work you have being putting out for these past years. Now here's my question: I have interest in drawing webcomics, but I'm still a beginner, how can I tell when my skills are developt enough to the point where I can draw a comic that doesn't look awful.
Marshall I remember when you were talking about studying some aspect in nature so much that it could be applied to a composition almost subconsciously (like the wedding dress designed like a waterfall). How can I recognize some aspect in nature that would make my compositions better and more unique? Is it just to decide what I think it's cool and start studying it? Or should I give a more well thought analysis about which stage my art is right now and where do I want to take it? By the way, thank you for the podcast and for taking the time to answer it.

15 beans, 1 minute each! I think I can capture the movement of the torso well actually, but I struggle when it requires perspective. Also my lines are pretty messy in most of these, sorry about that.
Hello everyone, these are 2-minute gesture drawings I've done for the past couple of days. I feel like they're a bit on the cartoony side and not that realistic/proportional. The way I drew these was by starting with the robo bean and then attaching the limbs. Do I need to learn anatomy in conjunction with figure drawing to make my drawings look more realistic/proportional? Or should I just focus on figure drawing for now and worry about anatomy further down the line?
I feel really anxious when sketching in digital. Like I can't grasp the tridimentionality in the digital media like on paper, my drawings/ paintings end up looking really flat. How can I change it and FEEL the 3D on my computer screen?
