I draw mostly for hobby. I mostly do comic book style art but also some classical style like portraiture or human figures.

I tried that trick you did by coloring the edges of the figure, then selecting the background and then inversing the selection to fill in the inside of the figure but it didn't work. When I used the magic wand it also selected everything inside the figure. Is there anything I did wrong? I don't think I left any opens spaces when I colored in the edges.

These are a little hard to see but they're fairly decent. Watch your proportions. On some of them I notice stuff like the rib cage being too large or the femur being to short.

Here's my gray scale. I feel I could refine it more but don't want to put too much into it. I don't want to make it into a big thing. I want to do more of these also.

This task is a real challenge for me. I find it difficult to draw 3 dimensional objects. Does anyone have tips on how I can learn to draw objects better? I'd hugely appreciate constructive feedback for the homework. Thank you :)

if you're having difficulties drawing 3D forms, break them down into basic shapes first. Try to visualize the form in its most simplistic shape. You can do that for everything you see. You will even be able to see more than one shape in one subject. Stan talks about this in his figure drawing course. You can also look this stuff up on YouTube. I'm sure there are many videos on the subject.

So question, would you recommend always starting a painting with neutral grays?

Great course so far. Where can I find the link to the brushes and/or the line art in this lesson?

Hiii here are my first gesture drawings from across a 1 week period in order of when I did them. This is my first time taking art lessons of any kind and I’ve developed way too many bad drawing habits over the years, so I apologise for the bad line quality and all the itchy scratchies! Tripod hold still feels a little weird and sometimes I automatically draw over a line until it is at the angle I want so I’m practicing just leaving the lines as they are. Any tips or critiques would b hugely appreciated!

These are actually a pretty good attempt. However, you're focusing on contour too much. Remember it's gesture. You're trying to break down the poses to the bare minimum, the movement, flow or action. I'd suggest doing 30 seconds per photograph if you're not already. This way, you know your time is limited and you'll focus more on finding lines that express the motion rather than the contours of the body. Good luck and don't give up.

Just wanted to say that I enjoyed your class very much so thank you. You are amazing and here is my shot on one of the exercises. Will definitely continue to practice shading more and with a fresh perspective on how to approach it. Thank you again and cant wait to see more classes from you.

Sort of looks like an elephant trunk wtih a bird form at the end. This is awesome!

What brush is that you are using in the first sketch video? It has a sort of charcoal texture. Is it available to purchase or download anywhere?
