    I'd like to point out 2 things here

    1. all of your constrctions are lacking line weight and shadows filled in with solid black, which makes it really hard to understand how these parts exist in space. Your elephant is an example of this effect, as I can't make out the forms with all the noise. If you dont have a brush pen or thicker pen to fill your cast shadows with, still fill them as solidly as you can with the pen your using. A half-hearted effort will just create a focal point and draw your veiwers attention to it. Uncomfortable mentions that in his cast shadows video. If your worried about your pen, I tried it in lesson 2 as i didnt have a brush pen either and it did get use up faster, but the clarity and understanding it gives is well worth it.

    2. this is something you can take with a grain of salt as I am currently working through this lesson myself. You constantly added forms to your bluebird construction, which isn't a very good idea as it adds noise and breaks up the bird as a whole, ruining the solidity. Try to stick closer to uncomfortable's method and imagine that your merging your forms together. Sorry if that comes of as a dumb platitude but it's the best I have.

    good job forging through though

    edit: I looked at your sketchbook and I think you should focus on your warmups and understanding each task and the units of work they consist of

    Thanks for the response.

    I was'nt really worried about using different colors in general, just in the event that my pen dries up during the gradient or something, I'd have to continue with a pen that's really different in color.

    I do want to continue with the course though. It's been recommended to me to continue with the lesson and come back when I have the means (within the same lesson of course).

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
