Decided to try it. I have a big question: I feel like I take a long time to try to figure out how to shade the forms. I get really really nervous and I don't know why. I haven't really done this before. Is it something that gets better with time? Edit: I added an updated piece cause I felt I overdid the gray using a conte stick.
I had an attempt at the tentacle and then drawing my own. I got carried away and went way too big for my first go. I made a lot of mistakes along the way but it was fun to see it come together.
My attempt after watching part 5 & part 6 and I'm not sure how I feel about it but I could a lot better with adding the finer details but considering I'm working on a small drawing (half a page on A4) I pretty much found it difficult to do the small renders of the drawing. I don't really do imaginative drawings as I mostly draw from reference so this was a new horizon for me. Off topic but whenever I take a picture of my drawings they seem to make it worse then they are or that might be a reflection of my drawing isn't rendered enough.
Just wanted to say that I enjoyed your class very much so thank you. You are amazing and here is my shot on one of the exercises. Will definitely continue to practice shading more and with a fresh perspective on how to approach it. Thank you again and cant wait to see more classes from you.
