Alright guys, now that you’ve had some time to work on your level 1 “Learning to Sketch from observation” project. Ill show you how I would approach the sketches.

Posting some sketches of other stuff as Stan mentioned. It was really fun, especially drawing Louis! Drawing hands is still difficult thouh...Anyways, have a nice day/evening
A few more….
This demo is helping so much, thanks Stan! Have only got through the penguin so far, but have re-tried it and I’m so much happier with it! Will come back and do the other two, but for now, I wanted to celebrate a little win. Here is my first attempt, before the demo, compared to my second attempt. Head proportion is still way off, but I know you said it’s more about the lines now anyway. Any other feedback is super welcome. I think I’m learning how to sketch!
tried the 3 references before watching the demo and then i tried a hand with another ref. would appreciate feedback really much. i really like the line quality but I think it still looks „wrong“
Re-did it multiple time since that been failng at some success at others, behold !one of them : a frog
Just sketching vs. trying to get a nice drawing (with the best proportions possible) Murray Bartlett
My first attempt to draw this,
So what if my proportions are way off? I’m trying to play with an idea here!:P
Two down-one to go. I enjoyed this tapered line. More practice needed but loving the line is a great start for me.
What is the name of the jazz song that was playing during the hand demo?
Here are my three attempts. I have a problem with quite a few things, such as knowing where to start, confidence in my lines, and proportion. Stan’s demonstration was very helpful. I will now try these drawings again and try for improvement in each of these areas.
Wow - video was super clarifying. Realize I was totally focussed on each line and not the bigger shapes /ideas/rhythms etc Here’s my post video efforts (red) and perfectionist, unfinished, pre video attempts example (graphite). Gonna need to shop for a new red pencil…
Just realized I forgot about the thumb.
Hand and second penguin drawing are done after watching the video. The most difficult one was the hand. I have a really hard time drawing objects to fit the page, it's always too large.

Redraws along with the video.
Love the feeling you captured of VR-Girl drawing back to handle whatever is coming!

These are so fun and informative to watch, even though I'm too ill right now to do the assignment I still feel like a learn a lot of just watching you work. Can't wait to try it out myself as soon as possible!

Hope you're feeling better!
Get well soon!
The penguin is done after the demo - the vr-girl before.
Practicing to sketch hands with “The Thing” (in German it is “Das eiskalte Händchen”)
Gonna remember this for when I start to study hands, the thing is so expressive, it's a great way to study hands!
Tried sketching a skull. :D
What did you use for this sketch? Is it oil chalk? I like the broad stroakes.

Succeeded sketching a skull. ;-)

Attempt after watching the demo. The idea of getting into a specific mindset while sketching was really useful. It might not be the easiest thing to achieve at first but it's definitely something worth practicing. Thanks!
