Wow. I don't know how, but this ended up being one of the hardest challenges to judge. You guys did great with this. I couldn't pick 1, so I picked 5 winners! And there were way more that came close. The winners are: @Zoungy Kligge @Ihsan Azrael @uwushane (instagram) @_leiondavid (instagram) @randalrobertsart (instagram) Congrats, you all get a free course. Please email support (the help button on the bottom right) and let us know which course you want. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'm very thankful for all of you and the support you've shown me and my team throughout the years :)

More animals in shapes. I decided to give myself a goal and move on once I get there. I am on 6 out of 20 Animals.

I like your drawings, I'm gonna try the "goal" idea too! (genius)!

2022/6/10. Heyo :) My 1 minute quick gestures from posemaniacs. Criticism is appreciated.

Hi Alex...actly, I'm working on this also. I can clearly see the human form, however it looks like you are working with shapes and outlines specifically. I can see body parts (glutes, pecs...) and I believe the goal is to ignore the outlines and body parts, and instead focus on the "line of action" or "gesture". It's difficult to wrap my head around it but this might help you (since it has helped me), try not to close any body parts. so just for now while you get the hang of it, make a sweeping line for each arm and leg. Don't put the outlines around body parts. You can even make a seeping line that "represents" the torso and hips, it might look like a fish hook (sorta). I hope that makes sense. I think you have to turn your thinking brain off, and go for the feel of the pose. Good Luck!

Here's a set of beans after watching all the videos and some practice (including draw alongs). The twist was initially quite difficult but I've got a better idea now especially after watching the critiques. I know my line work still needs improvement and I probably could've exaggerated more. Anyway, any feedback would be appreciated, thanks very much!

Hi Elkad, I am also struggling with this exercise! I like many of the shapes you have here. On some of them I have a hard time knowing weather the torso is bending away from the viewer ( the center line suggests it does), or towards the viewer because the lines that show the "pinch" cross over each other and continue. So while it looks like the center line fades back and away, the pinch lines suggest that the hips may sit behind the torso... instead of in front of the torso or closer to the viewer. Maybe take a look at some of them and see if you choose which pinch line belongs in front (either the torso line or the hip line), and darken one line or erase the other line so that either the hip or the torso is clearly in front? I hope this is helpful, I'll be honest it's a bit hard to articulate 🤪

Amazing! I have to say you are a natural teacher. I really enjoy getting to see your style and approach to a very complicated (at least for me) topic. You are so very organized and methodical. This will be my next course!

To me they look great! I even recognize some of the poses from the pictures.

Hey guys, here are some of my 2 min gesture drawings. I feel like some of them are slightly stiff, any advice to make them feel a bit more fluid?

Hi Patrisco, I'm afraid I'm not much help since I'm new to this, however I will say that the poses do seem stiff. They seem just a bit angular. It looks like the parts are put on in sections (each arm or leg...). This approach seems to make the pose look less fluid? Try just the lines for each "part" first, rather then making a three dimensional limb. Maybe see if you can find a simple line that runs from the hand to a foot... a line that sweeps through the body. I hope that helps. Having said all that I will admit that your drawings look quite a bit better than mine😒. (It's obviously easier to see, than to do...)

Hi! Here's my submission for the challenge. Book is A Gathering of Shadows by V.E.Schwab, the second in a trilogy and one of my favorites! It's full of pirates and magic tournaments and different Londons, and darkness that's gaining strength and waiting for the right time to strike back and conquer the kingdom.

"Old Tom Bombadil is a merry fellow, Bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow." I know Tom is a controversial figure among Tolkien fans, but he's always been one of my favorites. This piece was done in traditional pen & ink with digital coloring. Ring-a-dong-dillo!

The final image is the colorized One (donne with G.I.M.P). It's called "Happy to be a Robot". I started by brainstorming a bunch of ideas on a piece of paper and selected 3 of the designs that I found the most interesting : the Squary head, thé flying head, and the rolling three-legged dog. I found it funny to put them in a kind of Prehistoric setting. Most of the Work was done with graphite on A4 paper (Black and White version), Yet I digitally added color. Enjoy :)

I love the "tribal" feel for the robots!

Street bot. Lefts graffiti everywhere, annoys everyone with bad music taste. Actually may be helpful, but refuses to obey people. In the design process, I tried to stick to three principles, beside the main requirements: functionality, simplicity and personality. Maybe some previous sketches would have been better for this assignment, but still I very enjoyed drawing this restless bot) I put some sketches showing the way this idea developed. Thanks for the challenge!

here is my final piece :) it's called N-U-R-S-22 After the increasing demands of robots in different industries especially healthcare, a new version of N-U-R-S nurse robots’ series was presented in the market, model N-U-R-S-22 was amazingly efficient and more intuitive than older versions like 20 and 21, has an embedded 3D and 2D scanning technology and far more advanced in diagnostic. unfortunately, N-U-R-S-22 model was discontinued due to R&D budgets cut and distribution in the microchips supply chain...

I like the first one better because for me it has more character. It seems a bit nerdy if that makes sense? The second one is "odder" but doesn't seem to have a character. Maybe start with the purpose of your Odd bot and then craft around that? Is it a mining bot, or is it a medical bot? And then make it as odd looking as possible. The first bot looks like its a furnace bot that spends a lot of time in the "basement, alone and has resorted to solitaire maybe? He/s looks a little lonely...for me it totally works! maybe just run with that idea and find a way to make the furnace bot really odd?
