this was a new thing for me because I've never done that before. I used the technique of measuring from the tip of the pencil to the thumb as shown in the video. the reference picture was small when I measured it so that's why it probably looks a bit squashed down. any tips and feedback are appreciated.
I was struggling with the first attempt so this actually my second. I did the rooster and buffalo portraits with some detail maybe just to get the idea but then I did them again and simplified them. I'm not good at drawing animals so it was nice doing this one
This is my attempt with Knight Zhang. the page is a bit messy with lines on the side. I chose something that wouldn't be too complicated and that I could draw considering my quite simple style. this was my first time doing something like that and was actually very fun to do.
The first attempt of this practice is quite messy. I did another try at the penguin and the hand and they are after the reference pictures. I tried to say loose but maybe it's too loose and also a bit too small. I struggled with the girl a bit but did draw it as close as I could.
Here is the practice I did of the simplification. the first two pictures are the first attempt at that and after that the next day I did that again which came out better I think. the second attempt is after the reference pictures. I didn't do the boots on the second try because I think they looked quite good on the first one but I could be wrong. feedback is appreciated.
This is my attempt to simplify the pears and the portrait. Did this a few days ago but wasn't sure whether to share or not and get feedback but sharing now anyway. I'm taking the free version of this course so I can't really watch the demos or the critiques so any critique and feedback here is appreciated. I know the portrait doesn't look so good but I don't know how I can improve or fix it, and if the pears also need some improvement then you can tell me how to improve them too. I'm not exactly a beginner I've been drawing for years now since I was little but I took this course to sort of improve my skills and learn things. Also, side note on some pages I wrote the name of the lesson so I could remember what lesson or practice it was. I've done already some lessons, even in the shape section but I take the time now to share everything in one go. Some of the pages will look messy so I hope the subject of the practice and what I tried to do are clear enough.
