    sorry again for the late reply but for the dears horns and you could've úsed a box for the base form that the cylinders come out from and you could've used basic cylinders for the horns. and makes sure to consider the sausages as froms and make sure to use a form countour line where the sausages intersect. other that remember to think about construction starting with a basic form them building on top for the subjects but for now I'll mark this as complete

    Next Steps:

    next lesson

    thank you for taking the time and giving me a critique this was awesome. and thank you for callng me crazy. but I thought that my intial planning stage was pretty lackluster I could've put a bit more effort in the intial planning stage but I'll keep the basic perspective issues in mind and tone down my line work

    in the first one you don't use sausages for the leg construction.use sausage forms try to focus on the construction more and less on the detail I know it's tempting to draw the texture but it's not the point of this excercise.if yout having trouble draw a ground plane. and build it off place the referance under carefull consideration and figure out the relationship off each major form.

    Next Steps:

    2 pages off animal construction. read the lesson material again thoroughly.

    ok for your intersections you could use cast shadows. and you clearly aren't observing the referance as iong as you should. take carefull consideration on what forms to use to break down the subject to understand how its built an how to break it down into more efficient blocks using it's major masses

    Next Steps:

    2 pages off animal drawings. spend a lot of time into breaking and analysing and thinking about the referance on how it''s built. think about what your doing wrong and try to improve.

    hey you have a good sense off presentation and rendering but I dont think dab is about rendering here. this lesson mainly focuses on breaking down subjects into basic forms and building on those basic forms to achieve a recognizable solid thing that is similar to the referance image. to do that you must use solid unbroken lines that have been plannned out before carefully. but here you use very broken lines that seem to convey the larger form very well suprisingly. but that is no excuse not to use basic form as your building blocks. you seem to not have your any of your homework critiqiued. which is very bad actucally because your lesson 1 has all of these foundational mistakes that could have fixed so I'm recommend getting everything critiqued before you move on to whatever next lesson you want. and there is gonna be a lot of homework and I mean a lot of homework. first focus on using your shoulder to commit long unbroken lines. before comitting please make sure to consider where, how loong or how curved you want to make your line come out. and sure to think of large forms and not smaller ones and forget about the texture detail for now.

    Next Steps:

    1. 3 pages of ghosted lines please read all the lines material properly https://drawabox.com/lesson/1/2

    2. 2 pages off organic form intersections. use cast shadows please https://drawabox.com/lesson/2/organicintersections 3. 4 pages off animal constructions please read all the materials.https://drawabox.com/lesson/5 always think about what your doing wrong and how to imprive upon it. it's okay to fail. if you fail take notes on what you've done badly on and try to improve .take your time to process everything.

    your bird constructions are really solid and have been very nicely simplyfied. nice use of contour lines overall but on your mountain lion page you could have used a bit more time fully observe the relationship between the front legs and the back legs as they look fatter than the front legs. but it isn't a recurring issue so i'll let it pass

    your contructions are nice and solid. just make sure to think about the constructions and the solidity off the subjects and don't prioritize detail over structure. other than that nicely done. i'm gonna give a pass

    again sorry for replying after 8 months

    2:32 PM, Friday February 9th 2024

    i am so sorry for the abysmally late reply please feel free to hate me. your countour curves have improved quite a lot honestly. but please sure not to fuss over the lines and to properly try to convey the form of the sausages form description over wobbly lines

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
