Here's a preliminary pass on the assignment. I feel like I'm way too stiff while doing these and it all looks flat. Tomorrow I'll break down my subjects into forms more, I really struggle with it. Any feedback, suggestion or hint is welcome.

Love your creature choices for this. Good critters!

Fell off the wagon for a few weeks, I realized I was following the course a bit too rigorously, without drawing some stuff I enjoy every now and then. Been drawing cats to get back into the groove of drawing from observation and having a blast, looking forward to level 2 of this lesson!

Very pleasing simplifications of form, cute stuff!

Hi @Stan, could we get a rough timeline of when the section on values will be ready? I've been using your drawing basics course for my students and it's been really helpful.

The next section of the course is Intuitive Perspective, and Values will follow that. Considering past experience with previous sections, we probably won't finish Intuitive Perspective until mid-summer at the earliest

Interesting topic! Apologies if this had been asked a million times: is there an estimation on when the perspective course will be released? :). I really enjoy the logic/science/magic of it! And Marshall is an inspiring teacher!

My lines still suck and I don't know nearly enough to be able to draw this stuff, but studying line weight is an eye opener! * Carter Goodrich: Note how Gru's eyes and eye brows are much thicker and darker than the rest of the face, and how this underlines his expression. * Dave Malan: In this portrait, line weight adds focus in a really stunning way. * Ryan Woodward: Note especially how the heavy contours are different from the shadow sides. I think he puts weight exactly on those contours that support the dynamics of the pose. I tried to draw this in a few different ways and there is none that works nearly as good. Wow. I need to practice...

Your Gru is getting there! The line weight variation helps a lot. There's a bit more variety of lines in the original, and a good deal more hatching. This would be a fun one to revisit later and do another study of.

Realize how rusty and bad I am when not drawing from imagination lol.

The Laces were a Nightmare. still not completely completely happy with them. with that said I think the snail is ok, (i know my straight lines could use work; the wood)

Not bad! One tip is to lightly ghost the lines of forms that are behind other elements so you can do them in one go- right now the lines of the wood the snail rests on feel disconnected from one side to the next

Perfect timing for this line master study, as I just got this collaboration book with art by Kim Jung Gi and Katsuya Terada. They have pretty amazing line drawings so I decided to practice from there. I only used a fountain pen and a brush pen for each drawing, as I think that's how each master drew them. I did notice while attempting to replicate the lines, that you need to have a flow, momentum, and confidence to get some of the lines.
