I think your proportions and gesture are good. But it looks like you have unconfident lines (scratchy lines), and your shading at the fingers doesnt show the form of the fingers.

I think you have very confident lines and your gestures are balanced. If I were at your skill level, I would move on to bean/robo-bean and mannequinization.

My first thought on this was to put cross contours on an object you’re familiar with and then do a rotation with it so you’d draw it at several angles as you rotate it toward your view. I found an article on Love Life Drawing on this topic that includes that. https://www.lovelifedrawing.com/powerful-exercises-in-foreshortening/ I hope this is what you’re looking for and it helps you out.

I've done three Domestika courses from three different artists (Shane Wolfe, Ariel Olivetti and Sorie Kim). Im not sure if its Domestika who edits the videos or the artists themselves, but the lesson videos and demonstrations are heavily cut and edited. Like I want to see the whole process, not a cut up version. I have nothing against the artists themselves, they are incredible. But unless Domestika stops heavily cutting and editing the videos, im not buying anymore of their courses. That being said, I found the assignments and final projects are fun, and you get a certificate when you complete a course.

I found myself in an interesting position where I had to create square thumbnails out of portrait-formatted pictures. I enjoyed using the polygonal lasso tool, I like the angular energy it gives to these pieces. I also forbade myself from using the color picker on the references, since I want to get better at eyeballing vivid colors.

I think you captured the essence of the landscapes with such simple shapes.

What I love so much about this class is the mix of media that you have used - my heart sank when you did your first digital example because I don't really do digital, but the pencil sketches and watercolour stuff is brilliant. Having made that comment, you have inspired me to go back to my Wacom tablet and have another go and the results have been pretty good actually, so I have moved forwards in so many ways and will definitely go back to some more of your videos as you explain things really clearly. But first I'm going to do some studies and probably go back through this whole class again just to make sure I haven't missed anything because it was great. I attach my copy of your digital painting which turned out so much better than I expected. Thanks Marco...

Art is an explosion. Art is something that blossoms for an instant before withering away. It is beauty that lasts for just a moment. You have to feel art. And true art... is an explosion. My dream job is to create art that literally explodes.

Hi Tiffanie, I am very sorry I didn't follow your instructions to use only circle/square brushes. I tried my best to keep it simple though. It would still be cool if you could critique my work, since I am self taught and have never had a professional critique my work before. Thanks for this cool challenge!

Yeah I use Autodesk Sketchbook, becuase as you said its free. But its also light weight and has PC, IOS and android versions too. I think its very popular amoung people beginning digital art, and you will find incredible artists on youtube who use Sketchbook. I think what is lacking with Sketchbook is lack of clipping mask layers, lack of liquify or warping tools, and the color balancing tools are very basic. However if you dont care about those things, it's a pretty nice option.

Go through this stuff multiples times (like I did) to really let it sink in. This course helped me get past the simple Loomis method and add more structured complexity to the face, rather than just faking everying in over a Loomis head. I can keep refering back to this course when im having trouble with planes of the face.
