Looks really cool. For me, charcoal is the easiest to work with because I find that I have more control with dry mediums. If you're just starting out with it, try doing life drawings and render them photorealistic. Doing still life and figure drawings with Charcoal really helped me get good with it.

After this, do another 5 minute portrait using the charcoal powder but without any lay in.

Maybe you could make an official Proko Discord or somehow integrate a similar chat option into the website.

Question about Proko 2.0: Will instructors from older courses (pre Proko 2.0) still be responding to assignments and comments on their lessons? I submitted an assignment 5 weeks ago for the art of caricature... Still no response... But thanks for all your dedication and hardwork.

So I went down a bit of a rabbit hole trying to understand the average face. I suppose it's very complicated - the way we recognize faces and process visual information. There's too much biological, psychological, etc. science stuff that is beyond me but I discovered this thing called a composite portrait where different faces are used to create an average. A lot of interesting stuff. I don't know if it's in the premium course but could you make a video or discuss the idea of the "average face" more?

This is my poster design for the challenge. I missed the deadline unfortunately but still feedback is welcome. I chose to make the story of the movie something that reflects my increasing curiosity with Social Media. Particularly I've been interested in thinking about it as an anthropological question. How and why do I need to reckon with this tool? That is the conundrum and the main conflict in the would-be movie. I wanted the design of the poster to kind of evoke the vibe of a biographical character drama like The Social Network directed by David Fincher. Accordingly I made an illustration that focused closely on a single person central to the story - ME. Anyway I thought the Instagram post visual would be a fun gimmick to try. The illustration was drawn traditionally and rendered digitally. Let me know what you think.

Caricature a fictional character so we can see what it's like to work with existing character designs. I suggest Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty.

Will you still go back from time to time to look at assignments or comments on your caricature course on Proko?

I followed a few of the lessons in your proko course a while back for a self caricature. I didn't really spend too much time on each video. Kind of just rushed through because I was spending too much time on it. I really think studying caricature is really helpful in understanding likeness as much as anatomy is. Here is my reference, rough sketch comprehensive (in charcoal) and my final drawing (graphite pencil). Personally, I feel like I couldn't quite translate the success of the sketch onto the final piece (maybe I got lucky?). I also could have tried to exaggerate more. I particularly want to know what to do if I can't quite get my final to be as good as my sketch, but all critiques and feedback are welcome.

PLOT "Reverie" is a film about my personal experience drawing and painting fantasy creatures. Creating fantasy worlds in our heads is something that I'm sure every one of us do often. With that premise, I thought about a story where I fall sleep looking at the moon on a full moon night, when I wake up everything seems extrange to me, I am in another world. That world is there for me, I get lost in all its majesty and greatness. Wild life in this fantasy world conforms a rich enviroment of new species and I feel the need to draw them so that I have notes of every creature, every piece of land.  On my way I meet unknown creatures such as the ones you see on the film poster, who help me find a way to return to my world at the same time we fight dangers and discover secrets well hidden. After living an adventure with theese characters, I have to make the final decision, do I want to go back to life or do I want to stay there forever? Will I ever remember this world? THOUGHTS My main idea was to create an "8" composition with all the characters involved in the plot. I also wanted me to be on the bottom with the book so that creatures looked like they are coming from the book somehow. I wanted to avoid making them literally coming out of the book but rather make the book the base of the painting so that hopefully it has that feel of giving life to everything. Hope you like it, you guys are all very skilled, can't wait to see all submissions left.
