Hey, I think keeping up the consistency in value will bring it up a step. Like on the prism you can see the value goes lower on the edges of the shadow face and there are splotches of lower value towards the middle. Also the rim light should never be as bright as your highlights! Your brightest shadows shouldn't be the same or lower in value compared to any of your lights. You need a fine light between your lights and darks. Also I have a little screenshot from one of the proko videos to show you what that looks like Keep it up and you will have it down in no time :)

Hey Jersey, great job on these. You're definitely getting the idea of what you're supposed to be doing. The proportions are correct, and they do like they're 3d objects. What I think you're running into is a dexterity problem. Your lines get the idea of what you're trying to do, but to me they feel unpracticed. What I would say is spend some time just drawing circles, and laying down value on paper without any subject matter involved. Listen to a podcast and just let the shapes and tone come out of your arm. I can tell you understand core shadow, mid tones, and highlights objectively. But it doesn't feel intuitive yet. I host a podcast, and recently I had my friend @Lucas Kremer on. He did a lot of work on the Watts online, and he also trained at the Watts for years. I really admire his perspective and his art. In the episode he talks about his peaks and valleys while training, and how the super mundane exercises end up being very important. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pH8d4IRJj8 While I was at the Watts Atelier, all of the teachers had pages in their pads that were just circles, lines, and tone. They would also credit that as one of the most important exercises you can do. @Erik Gist and Ben young would challenge students to spend a long time just trying to make a pile of boxes, or spheres look "cool". Hope this helps!

way to go buddy! i'm a beginner myself, but what i think might help you is learning to mannequinize the figure using 3d shapes. doing that will get a more believable figure in 3D, and it might even help the proportions

you can draw on top of the mannequin too if you want to add details. another way is building on top of gesture drawing.

Hi @Jersey Kertawidjaja , Hmm I would say in the subforum "drawing fundamentals". I see quite a lot of assignments being posted in this forum, where you can ask for feedback and tips :) -Leon

Hi @Jesper Axelsson , I’m back. This is some of my 30s/ 2 min quick sketch. I find it quite difficult to add exaggerations and draw limbs in a clear and simper way .Or maybe I’m just too focus on the contour. I will appreciate any suggestions.

Hi Harold, I'm a beginner myself, so take my advice with a grain of salt. The way I learn to exaggerate is to exaggerate it so far that it breaks the figure and fixing it on later drawings. But doing so helped me to not be afraid to draw the gesture with more emotion. Another fun tip. You can use charcoal on newsprint or even watercolor paint with brushes to draw gesture. I find it easier for me to draw with emotion! also it mixes things up! Cheers!

Hi guys! really appreciated the critiques last time, hopefully the compliments wont give me a big head XD. Here are my 2 minutes gesture, these ones are much harder as some of them I focus too much on either details or the 3D structure more than the gesture. Anyway any critiques welcome! I love this community, can't wait to stack up my years here and share my experience later on!

Had a 1-2 week stint where I wasn't practicing my drawings, and so I feel kinda iffy on these. Tips / pointers appreciated. On a separate note, I've had the figure drawing course for roughly 4-5 weeks now, would this be a good time to start working on the bean? I'd do gesture practices concurrently with the new lessons.

I believe Stan said that we should move on at 2 weeks max each stage. Since we’re never going to stop drawing gesture the rest of your life anyway. I sometimes move one when i get burnt out in one section

Hi there, just got the figure and portrait drawing fundamentals. Just wondering if there is a best place to upload the assignments. I know there are "assignments" and the "comments" tabs. And there is also the community forum. I was just wondering where best to upload my stuff, as to not spam somewhere. Thank you all :)
