Hello! I have made some drawings with the lessons from this course and need some help with criticism/feedback on what I have posted here. What is bad and what is good and so on. The form on the buttom on drawing: 1, I decided to give myself a challenge with only using one B2 pencil and try to make the most of it in terms of light and shadow contrasts. The other two shapes in drawing: 1 I have used two to maybe four pencils on. I would also like to say that this course has been fantastic fun to work on. I hope there will be a critique video like the ones in the Proko lessons for this course soon from Steven Zapata. I also think that he is a very good teacher and a very inspiring artist with a good sense of humor, and am looking forward to see more from him in the future with new courses. Hope people here can help me. :-)

Hi Mikal! Glad you liked the course! You did a good job here I like a lot of what's going on here. I think moments like the one I circled in the attachments are good north stars for things to pursue going forward. I really like how subtle but clear the rendering is on that particular...artery?... and I like the work put into transitioning out of that main mass into the little offshoot tentacles. I pointed some arrows at a drawing that looks almost like chrome- watch out for having too many little wobbly dark shapes. If you could make the same statement with less shapes that's probably the way to go. My main "meta" note going forward is to work on your shape design more- you have some grasp on the rendering here now it's time to refine your taste for what kinds of shapes that rendering is going to get applied to. How can you beautify them from the start and be more discerning with your distribution of shapes and the variety you find amongst them?
