Here’s my attempt at the portrait. I found it quite difficult to nail down some of the areas to just one of the five values, so this was a very good exercise.

Very inspiring to see some really beautiful doodles! I've been impatiently waiting for the class to start, so I've been studying Loomis' Fun With A Pencil. A great supplement for anyone looking for a foundation in constructionally drawing the figure!

I love that top third example. “Still hope” Loomis was such a great teacher.

I realized we were supposed to post our doodles here, so here are a few warm ups from today and a sketch of my daughter from yesterday. I’ve mostly worked in graphite and charcoal , but up until recently I’ve tried more pen ink and other stuff. It has made me realize how much I want to work on my line quality and not have to erase and redraw so much.

Here is my pear. I did this one digitally because it was most convenient at the time. I plan to do most of the course traditionally to really work on my line quality. Also started the portrait with graphite. Here’s my block in of that.

Perspective question. I have an imaginary boat with a pedestal seat in the middle. How do I make sure the pedestal oval is in perspective if the oval is not large enough to cross the entire boat deck. Figuring the “left and right”distance is very confusing for me

That is a difficult problem! I would draw a square in perspective positioned where you want it in the boat and use the mid-points of each side of the square as a guide to draw your ellipse. Hopefully the diagram helps that make sense.
