    Thank you so much!

    I agree with your statements on my line work, my biggest issue is drawing my strokes out too far past the mark, but also drawing them just a pinch too short when trying to constrain them, which causes a wobbly finish to the stroke.

    Rotating the page has been a lifesaving technique that I used for all of my previous submissions.

    As for the Rotated Boxes, I appreciate your time pointing out the VP, I am personally satisfied that I managed to get the exercise to turn out at the level it did.

    In the end, thank you again for deeming my Lesson 1 progression as complete! I hope to see more guidance from you in my future submissions!

    Hello Clumsy Penguin! Thank you so much for your critique!

    I wasn't certain people actually gave crits on submitted homework, especially since I haven't made my presence known on the Discord or any other outlet, so I apologize in that I had only noticed your message today!

    I am already 50 or so boxes into the 250 box challenge in my ignorance of keeping up with these notifications as of today.

    I further apologize for not noticing the homework required 3 panels per page, I mistook the example homework as being three seperate examples instead of all being part of the same unit of example.

    After some time I have completed the 3 requests you listed, however as I have always made strong use of the ghosting method, I was forgetful of utilizing the dot method until I had reached my last piece of homework, the rotated boxes.

    The link to the three homework exercises is below, thank you again for your time and honest feedback!

The Art of Brom

The Art of Brom

Here we're getting into the subjective - Gerald Brom is one of my favourite artists (and a pretty fantastic novelist!). That said, if I recommended art books just for the beautiful images contained therein, my list of recommendations would be miles long.

The reason this book is close to my heart is because of its introduction, where Brom goes explains in detail just how he went from being an army brat to one of the most highly respected dark fantasy artists in the world today. I believe that one's work is flavoured by their life's experiences, and discovering the roots from which other artists hail can help give one perspective on their own beginnings, and perhaps their eventual destination as well.
