Help with perspective!
Hi friends, I have been commissioned to create an image for a mural for a museum exhibition that is of a 1900s general store. I've drawn it out, but my understanding of perspective isn't concrete yet (though I just signed up for Marshall Vandruff's perspective course which I am SUPER excited for. Could someone please help me understand where I am going wrong in this drawing? The composition has already been approved by the client so I can't change that, but I need to make sure the drawing is solid because it will be blown up to a 12ftx12ft(ish) wall. Thank you for your help!

Trouble with understanding the instructions
I have a general question - I have some trouble understanding the instructions in the very first projects - simplifying the pear and mushroom warm up. Specifically, sometimes a phrase is used like "imagine a line here", "imagine the ellipsis before drawing", "be intentional", etc, but there is no instructions telling how to do that, which kinda tells me that this is something so obvious that it doesn't require any explanation, but i'ts not obvious for me. Can someone explain how to do it?

Looking for Accountability Art Buddies
Looking for people that are interested in building habits to be consistent in drawing/painting on the weekends. My time zone is EST and do this from 8:30am to 12:30. If you are interested, please leave me a DM or just reply to this post! I started this 2 years ago, only putting 1hour on Sundays and I'm pretty proud that after so much effort I draw/paint for 7hours consistently on the weekends. Programs/website needed: - Discord and Magma (it's like a website base "photoshop" where you draw along with other people).

Study Buddy
Hello! I would love to find someone who would like to get together over zoom or chat at least once a week to work through exercises together even if we are on different lessons and critique each other. I'm in Jacksonville if you want to meet up in person but either way it would be nice to have a study buddy!

Pear- light values lack definition
I am unhappy with the muddiness of the light values. I was trying to avoid an outline mark darker then the surrounding values but instead it just got "mashed potatoe"-y. I dont think it shows 3 light values. Maybe 2 at best. Any critique would be very helpful. Thank you for your time.

Tips on where to go on from here as a beginner.
Hello! Since the Drawing Fundamentals course is still ongoing, I'm curious about where one can dip their artistic toes in between new lesson releases. I'm particularly interested in the figure drawing, anatomy, and portrait drawing courses. Ultimately, I plan to complete all of them. Would it be optimal to wait and complete the entire Drawing Fundamentals course first, or would it be okay to explore other courses in the meantime? If so, what would be the most logical order to go through them? I'm concerned that I might easily become overwhelmed as a beginner.

Figure drawing/shading in pen and ink, feedback greatly appreciated!
I was working on breaking down figures into forms and got carried away and decided to work on inking once the pencil drawing was completed. Curious about any feedback you might have regarding the figure aspect, proportions, inking or anything else? I’m still very much a beginner so any advice/pointers are helpful! Thank you!

Need of Criticism with My Gesture Drawings
These are my first 65 gesture sketches I’ve drawn over the first 2 weeks. Most of them are 2-min drawings, but there’s also some 30-sec and 1-min sketches then and there occasionally. I've been experimenting with how I draw gestures because I feel like during the middle of the first 2 weeks, I keep making the torsos too long, so I decided to have a very simplified ribcage and pelvis model as reference for my drawings. The poses are definitely stiff on most of these, but regardless, I’d like to be given feedback so that I can improve and draw people very well! (I’ll attach the reference images in this thread.)

Pear Exercise attempt #2
This is my second attempt at the pear this time after having watched the video demo. I'm definitely going to watch that one a couple of more times and practice more. I drew this one on the top left corner of the page and I think I didn't leave myself quite enough room for the bottom shadow, but I went for it anyway. Any suggestions as to how I can improve for my 3rd try, I'm definitely listening! Thanks!

Pear exercise attempt #1
Hi everyone, I'm new here and this is my first attempt at the pear. I have not watched the demo yet, but I will and then will do a second attempt. Whole thing was done with an HB pencil. I shaded dark to light. Not sure if it's better to shade light to dark? Any suggestions, questions, comments are all welcomed. Thank you, and I hope everyone here is having a wonderful day!

Small Portrait ( feedback greeted)
Hello ! Looking for some feedback 👋 I tried to make a portait that’s every small ( not even half a sketchbook page) compared to the ones I’m used to. The challenge was not to focus on the details too much and try to give a simplified version of the photo. So what do you think? Any review or critique is greatly appreciated

Practicing C S I lines
Good day! A question I've been forgetting to ask. When practicing my C and S curves, one difficulty i face is my hand obstructing my path , thus messing up my hand eye coordination (unlike a straight line where if I place 2 dots I can always see where I want to go)  What do/did you all do to overcome that?
