Here’s my submission. I’m happy to have caught up to hopefully get critiqued for the 100th episode! I really found doing this project helped me apply wha I have been learning with tumbling the boxes. I think I still need to work on finding the right angle from imagination, but I think I am on the right path.

My series of seal sketches, I really loved this assignment. Seals have not only unique shapes but such a lovely gesture for drawing, the ones that had the most gesture were easier to make, while the ones that were more straight were bit harder to draw. Overall, I feel this assignment was really good and I got good basic understanding of how to use gesture and lines to create unique shapes instead of contours.

Here is my work on the rhythms assignment. At first I was a bit confused on how to movemthe rhythms through, and really what made it different from gesture. The first three I tried were off and I wasn’t happy with them so I tried again. This time I instead of forcing myself to finish in 5 minutes I took a bit more time and the results were much better. The last six are all from that second session and I can see that they have a lot more flow and structure. I can’t wait to use this with my gesture drawings,

Initial attempt at this project. This was really fun and helped me see how to use one point perspective to construct an entire scene. I really loved trying to figure out how to match each line to the vanishing point. Please feel free to critique.

Here is my initial attempt at the level one project. Perspective is something I’ve been tying to work on so this project was really enlightening. I’ve been using the box method for the head for a while now, but this really showed me what I still have to learn. I got a basic understanding, but I was struggling with matching the top of the head to the top plane of a box and with trying to visualize the horizon line for the photo compared to my own eye. I will watch the demos and do some more practice on this.

Here ar my submission from a few days ago. I was going a bit fast to get caught up with the live critiques but the perspective section has really been helpful. This assignment was much easier to do after understanding that the perspective of each box is different instead of forcing every box to align to the same vanishing point, I love hands and I think these were pretty okay. I’ll need 5o do more to make sure I really understand it.

I am posting these way later than when I drew them, but here are my posts for the animal portrait project. This project really showed me how shape design can and should be simple yet dynamic, I really had fun challenging myself to break down the character, and the fact our shapes were not limited to basic ones helped me to understand how shapes can be used as opposed to relying on contours.

Here is my master study of Ian McCaig. I loved the way his lines have a very fantastical feel and how his hatching adds shadow and form. I think this is my first real master study and I feel there is a lot to learn. I definitely need to practice thinking about how why an artists makes a certain choice and their process beyond the finished piece. I really wish all of his art had a dedicated place to look at them cause I found this in an old blog. 😂

Here are my submissions for level 1. This was definitely an eye-opening project. I’ve never thought about using my lines to signify aspects of the artwork before. The first one is the hierarchy of importance, and the second is the light and shadow. Each one has its own unique identity. The HoI I feel stands out more, and the lines give it a more gestural moving feel which I wanted. With The light and shadow my eye loses part of the rhino in the background where the light hits it, but it feels more immersed in an environment and more realistic. I need to work on this a lot more but I think this project went okay.

This is a really unique design. It feels both majestic and terrifying.

For this level 2 challenge I decided to combine two animals into a unique fantasy mount. I came up with the Crawnocerous. In the initial sketches I focused on getting the idea down and emphasizing the gesture and shape. In my final sketch I developed the design more, but I feel the position of the legs made it lose the feeling of bulkiness it had.

Here are my submissions for this project. Done in procreate. I was in a weird space with this one. I tried my best to be confident with every line though some initial lines were very dark and needed erasing. I really worked to sculpt the curves after realizing from the CSI demo that I didn’t need to make s-curves in a single stroke. I emphasized the gesture and movement on the VR girl and hand, but the penguin was lacking it. I will do this one gain after doing the level 2s.

Here’s my posts for this assignment - done before the 12-day challenge. I had saw Proko’s CSI videos much earlier, but this really showed me how to use it beyond gesture drawing. The snail and Skelly were the hardest because I lost some of the proportions, but I think they are okay. I can definitely make some improvements with my lines.

Thank you so much Proko for this challenge. I'm really happy I won the portrait course. I'm honestly surprised I was considered. I can't wait to further my portrait skills. I will continue to use your timer and develop my skills with it. Thank you guys again.

Here’s Day 12. The first 3 pages are 2 minute warm ups. While watching Ryan’s stream I started to combine the poses together to create panel compositions. The last page are all 10 minutes, fleshing out full characters from the pose. I really loved the last page, It’s simple but really dynamic. I just want to say thank you Proko team for the amazing free references and this challenge that helped me learn a lot and engage in creating with other artists. This was honestly one of the best ways to learn and should be done more often. Happy Holidays everyone and let’s all reach our artistic dreams!

Here’s Day . Counterclockwise from the bottom right are 3 5-minute sketches and the rest are 10 minutes. Also playing with some new free procreate brushes by Kristian Nee. While watching Marco’s livestream I feel my structure didn’t come out as well as it could have. I had been pushing some structure out a bit recently to improve my gesture and flow, so I didn’t have my usual strong cylinders. But with these I applied the horizon line method and following through with my cross contours. Please feel free to critique my structure. I apologize for some muddling the brush was a bit too big for fine lines.
