Any feedback would be much appreciated! :) Some were closer to 2 mins, some were about 1 minute. I tried to do 30s but I wasn't fast enough and 1min is all I could do. If I took too long, like 2 mins, I sometimes tried again and make it more simplified and was able to bring it down to 1min.
Hello! I would really appreciate any feedback, I'm a newbie and don't even know what to look for. I sometimes retry when I know what my mistakes were or do corrections to keep in mind for future drawings, but I'm sure there are also things that I'm not seeing. @Jesper Axelsson I saw some of your critiques of other people's homework and I found it super helpful! If you have the time if you could please take a quick look at mine and let me know if there's any obvious mistakes that stand out. Also, full disclosure, my "2 minute" gestures are more like 10 minutes most of the time. It has gone down slowly with practice, and sometimes it's 6 or 4 mins if I've warmed up and it's a simpler figure. But I still definitely need a ton more practice. Do you think this is good enough to move on to the next videos and lessons? It's hard for me to tell. Thank you! :)
I'm glad you brought on Jeff to talk about this stuff. I feel like the more exciting things reveal themselves as you move further into art and get deeper into more advanced topics. And I'm not someone who generally looks at other people's art that much and forget why I got into this in the first place, so seeing a master's work and his explanation of some of the more advanced things in a simplified way for beginners is definitely an inspirational boost! :D Thank you Jeff and Stan! I hope to see more guests in future lessions as well to stoke my inner art fire. Thank you!
i put up 2 of the Shadows and light direction method but the 2nd one is not lvl 2. it's the same as the first Shadows and light direction method except with lowered brightness so the lines are easier to see cuz they were too light in the first one.
Tried to make a puppy + nietzche + c.g jung. Didn't make my drawings sketchy enough and spent too much time undoing and redrawing lines and I don't think it was a good use of my time. Dog on the right was the final sketch, but I was too tired of this assignment to add any details to make it more 3D. I'll try to remember the instructions better next time.
Took days, but I felt my skills improve as I worked through it and I got a little faster towards the end. My sizes were off though, top of my boots were smaller than bottom part for both of them, and the laces were too small. I need to check the sizes and ratio of different parts of the image throughout the piece and measure things to make sure I get the sizes correct. I'm also not sure if I simplified enough. I think I zoomed in and focused on details too much and didn't simplify the shapes enough, especially for the boots. I'm not sure though, I'll have to check to see how Stan did it in his demo. Any critique would be much appreciated! Thanks! :)
I made a mistake of trying to hide some of the lines for my shapes by erasing them, then remembered I'm supposed to leave those in. Had a pretty hard time struggling to figure out how to get the right pen pressure since I'm not used to drawing with digital. I also didn't fully understand what was meant by "make every edge sharp" I think I did that for most of them except for maybe on top right quarter of the pear? I'm really unsure. Any critique would be much appreciated! :D Also, idk if I should be doing the beginner or the intermediate version. The only course I've done before was DrawABox by Irshad Karim and got through like 98% of it, pretty much rage quit halfway through lesson 7 though I might come back & finish it later. I didn't receive any critique doing that course as I did the free version. So if someone can tell me whether I should do beginner or intermediate version that'd be great, cuz I can't really tell. (maybe both? idk) Thanks in advance! Also, how do I do the "asked for help" thing I saw on other posts? I'd love to get critique from one of the mods/instructors.
