I think I broke some rules with starting to add values and shading with this exercise. Overall fun to do. I’ve never drawn a snail before. The line work could have been cleaner imo, but I think I got the benefit of the exercise overall.
Watched the demo and then re-drew both drawings. The concept of the 'place holder' was a massive help as well as how to break the laces down into sections.
This... Didn't go as well. Really need some advice on where to go from here and improve. Welcome any comments/critiques, The laces really locked me up.
My first attempts at the camel and skeleton captain without demo. I definately feel improvement from what I would have done on my own and I'm feeling more confident with the lines. I think I still need some work on proportion though. Let me know if you agree in the comments. Thanks!
Hi, completelly newbie at art. Welcoming any comments/critiques. Want to find out/ understand my many flaws with this drawing :).
My 3rd attempts at the boots and the snail. Any comments/critiques much appreciated :)
This is my second attempt at the project. I used my own shoes as a reference. The tips from the demo really helped especially the one about drawing a container shape first.
1 image: before demo 2, 3 images: after demo I tried to simplify as much as I could. Still, I'm not that confident in lines.
Hello, here are my level 1 CSI projects before and after watching the demo. The major difference was the time it took to do the drawings. What helped me the most was the ‘container-tip’, which greatly boosted my confidence in line placement.
These are before and after watching Proko’s Demo. I kind of struggle with drawing my lines confidently, and forget to ghost most of the time. FeedBack is appreciated.
I struggle with not focusing on the details. When watching the demo and drawing along I made a mental note to start with a light base shape.
Had a much easier time simplifying the snail. Gave up pretty quickly on the boots. Noticing scale issues. If i was more patient, I’d have fixed that. I think these 9x12 pads are the smallest I can work on comfortably.
My first attempt at the snail and the boots. Drawn without seeing any demos or critique videos. The laces was a workout, but I actually found the snail more frustrating to draw. It was hard to draw a subject with no to little clear straight lines.
These were done before watching the demo. It was really tough One big struggle was to understand how I should hold my pencil to get nice curves and straight lines. Hopefully it will auto-magically come with practice. Let’s watch the demo now.
Great challenge. I'm attaching the two drawings I did before seeing Stan's demo and the two after. I feel like seeing the demo helped me a lot in better understanding how to make my lines simpler and clearer, but I still have a long way to go, especially with detail-oriented segments like the shoelaces.
