BEHOLD!! This is where my two main weaknesses meet and make me shake in awe and fear: line quality and cross-contour lines! My hand is so stiff, man! I always have a really hard time creating C curves that feel rounded and maintaining the form. Let alone being able to make the cross contour lines on a vertical plane to really make it feel 3d, but I gave it a shot anyways!

Good job, I think it looks great ! A little issue on the long fish when the cross contour line direction change. I had the same difficulty in my attempts. I guess the curve need to go slowly flatter until it is almost straight and then go back to a curve the other way. I try to think about it like 4 point perspective. Hopefully it helps :)

Hopefully I am still in time to submit ! It felt difficult to me when the cross contour line direction change. I have to make one of them straight and loose the 3D feeling. I have also tried to put everything together with line weight, gesture and shape design. Please let me know what you think about it :) In any case, I am very happy with it ! I remember previous lessons with the snail, sea lions etc. I feel way more comfortable drawing new animals than before ! I took many online drawing lesson but this one is the one that show the most improvement, I guess I needed some drawing basics 😅

Here is my attempt ! Not happy with all of them (the first ones are upper left and the one in the middle). As I got warmed up I felt better. I even tried a twisted torso :) This perspective chapter is getting less painful for my brain and I think I feel an improvement ! 😃

Hi everyone, Here is a personal project I've worked on last week. I have tried to focus on gesture, shape design and line quality while leaving complex anatomy aside (difficult with such a big guy 😅) I chose to remove some details (hands for example). The pose still feel static to me even if I tried to push it as far as I could. I am however quite happy with the line quality (line weight variation, confident lines...) and the shape design. Please let me know what you think about it ! I post the final watercolor as well, if you have any experience in painting, feel free to let me know what you think about it as well. Thank you guys ! See you !

Here is my attempts on this exercise. I found it difficult to place the boxes, especially the biggest part which twist a little bit. Feedback more than welcome 🙏

Hey everyone ! Second attempt for this exercise. My first attempt was too challenging so I decided to trace over the pictures. With the help of some critiques more than welcome, I think I understood a little better even if it is still very difficult ! At least my boxes look like boxes this time ! 😅 Please let me know your opinion if it fit the pictures or not and if the perspective is right. Thanks !

Hi everyone ! After few attempts on paper, it felt so difficult I chose trying tracing over pictures first. Even like this it was quite a challenge. I did all the picture this way but posted only a few. As the picture number grew, I felt a little more confident. Please let me know if it feels right to you. On most picture, it was really difficult to find convergence between the lines because I was really influenced by parts on the face. When I switched my mind into “cross contour” mode, it helped in my opinion. Waiting for your opinion on these and I’ll try again on paper without pictures underneath ! Thank you guys for your help !
