I spend most of my waking hours making Proko the best place to work at.

Hey @Todd Archinal. Sorry about the sound issues you experienced. We've fixed those the volume on the recent streams. Going forward, we are going to find a way to have a moderator on Proko questions and YouTube. We appreciate your feedback. If you haven't seen David's livestream last week, https://www.proko.com/lesson/drawing-superheroes-with-david-finch/discussions

Memorial Day couch sketching! It's been a long time since I've been able to sit down and sketch with no agenda and have fun. This was my first time laying out my POV in perspective, as well as some exaggerated gesture sketches from imagination (with a heavy nod to Marvel) as well as some Hogarth and Loomis study.

Can you guys speak a bit more about your note taking process in regards to learning? Have you incorporated a zettlekasten-like system at this point? Stan, what is that software that you mentioned using for your notes?

@Elvis Murray Stan uses a zettelkasten every day. From what I know, he takes notes from conversations, ideas he has on walks, and everything else from the day. Then he sorts those daily notes into permanent notes, makes links to other notes in the Zettelkasten. He uses Roam Research, which has a monthly fee. I use Obsidian. There are many other software to create a zettelkasten, like Notion, Remnote. If you are interested in starting one, it may help to read 'How to Take Smart Notes' by Sönke Ahrens.

I'm assuming that sentence is supposed to read "would be able to communicate with each other." It's in the works, under 'direct messages'. check out the roadmap. https://proko.com/roadmap

For this first assignment (ideation), are we suppose to design our own versions of havestman or are we suppose to design something completely different?

@Samuel Lemons Scott emphasizes in the Assignment video that this is about exploring your ideas. So this is about you designing something completely different.

Does watching this videos on proko.com instead of youtube hurt the channel in any way?

After a lot of Loomis practice, I made this intuitively with no references. Critiques are welcome! Thanks!

Hey @Chris Bodary make sure you use to click the "Post as Help request" button for feedback when posting in your feed or profile. It'll be marked so critiquers can see it and help. Btw, great these iterations of the Loomis head.

Did you post your reference image anywhere? I'm trying to draw along, but having a hard time seeing how and where the lips are overlapping
