I am very likely to purchase the head and figure drawing courses, but am unsure about this course which is quite a bit more expensive. I can see that it would be very useful for more advanced human figure drawing. However, my main interest is in animal drawing, would the techniques learned in this course be helpful in that arena? Obviously the specific anatomies will differ, except possibly for primates, but would there be enough general techniques in learning anatomy to justify buying the course? I should say that I have signed up for Aaron Blaise animal drawing courses so this would be in addition to those.
2022/6/19. Here we are! The last assignment of the anatomy course (I apologize for the strong light of my room). I joined Proko on November 29, 2020. About a year and a half ago my drawing level was the one in the photo on the right. I did the portrait, figure course and finally this one about anatomy. I learned a lot and got so passionate about drawing that I decided to enroll in art schools here in my city as well. I still have a long way to go to become a good illustrator but I think I'm on the right track. I want to thank @Stan Prokopenko for everything he taught me. It would be an honor for me if I could have a critique of him on this final work. I am sure there are many errors and inaccuracies. But Stan in one of his videos said once that we have to draw as if that drawing were to be exhibited in an art gallery. I put everything I could into it. And I will continue to do the same in the future as well. From tomorrow I will start studying Patrick Jones's anatomy course and Dorian Iten's course on shading. I also thank all those in the community who have allowed me to progress and improve with their very kind contribution and encouragement. Thank you all! Conte B on smooth paper (16.5x11.7 inches)
Hello. I mean not to be disrespectful, and I understand that people are busy and random things can happen that make it very difficult to stick to schedule. Plus, we were told that lessons would come "loosely" weekly, which doesn't imply a strict schedule anyways. But despite all of that, I am quite disappointed regarding the situation on the last two months. I couldn't find the exact dates of the lesson releases, but from what I can gather, the 4th lesson came out on 27th of march, and the next one on 16th april, and we've had no news since then. I'm writing this on 2nd of may. This is closer to a monthly release. Also, Jon mentioned he'd be critiquing the students work, but as far as I can see, the few reviews are all from other students. Perhaps what frustrates me the most in this situation is the fact that we are not even told what's going on. Everyone acts like this is normal. Could we at least have some explanation? Is it going to be like this all course long? As someone who bought this on presale last year, and was quite excited, this is very annoying. Perhaps I am in the wrong and my expectations were just too high. If that is the case, I understand that these things should be taken in consideration when purchasing yet-to-be completed courses on Proko. I hope I'm not sounding needlessly rude. Please understand that I don't mean to cause negativity, and am asking for at least clarification.
