I did my apple first and then went and followed along for the pear. I think both have values that are kind of mushy. Doesnt help I have two highlights on the apple because of my window. Cool to see people still posting even though this is a bit behind.

The pear looks great. It’s perfect for this assignment. When it comes to dealing with multiple light sources, it’s good to prioritize one. For this one, I would darken the side facing the window and treat that ‘highlight’ like bounce light instead.

Here's my first go at level 1, the pear!

Had a really hard time letting the shoulder stay loose and resist the urge to draw with my wrist. But I’m extremely happpy how it turned out. Tried to channel my inner Disney concept artist especially on the boots.

These are wonderful. I like that you pushed the designs for this assignment.

My snail and boots! The laces were a MAJOR challenge, they took me a very long time and I still feel like those lines are quite choppy compared to the rest of the boots. But I got it done! Will probably redo the snail after watching the critique video. Happy to receive any critique on these.

I'm going to one of these, at least, once a week. I did this one in pencil and it came out lighter than I wanted.

Here are my attempts at some ginger people from imagination, using some ginger reference for inspiration. I really liked sprouted ginger roots that had leaves and smaller roots coming out of them. This was a fun but challenging one, especially, with trying to make interesting shapes that still look like characters. Any critiques welcome!

These are 1 minute bean studies. Making round marks using my whole arm and not just my wrist is something I'm working on in these studies. May need to review some twist and lean examples. If anything else stands out, I'd love to hear critique

These are perfect! Only critique I might have is that you could push these beans further. Squash, pinch and, twist them till they break.

Question for anyone out there. I have heard people say 2 point is the most commonly used perspective and three point is just for buildings and similar things. I have also heard things like 2 point is likely the most you need. As some one who is working towards character design should I still invest more time in 3 point over 2 point perspective?

I think it’s worth understanding 3pt perspective. It will help your drawings look more 3d. No need to get too far in the weeds with it though (unless you’re going into architecture or something). Heres a super simple way of thinking about it.
