    Hi there! This is looking good! One thing that stood out to me when looking at your work were the elipses, specifically in the ghost planes. I would say if you can try to keep the numbers of draw-through's of the elipses to only two times. Just so it can still have a better structure without looking to scratchy. One other thing that stood out to me were the lines of the planes themselves they seem to wobble just a tad so keep an eye out for that in the future. Well done!

    Hello there! Your excersises look great! The one thing i did notice a lot throughout your work are the wobbly lines. I would say make sure youre ghosting and using your shoulder when creating those marks so that they come out confident and strong. I noticed it the most in your ghosted planes exercise. So just work on that ans that should definitley elevate your work!

    Next Steps:

    Try doing some more ghosted lines, possibly go over the ghosted planes exercise again.

Color and Light by James Gurney

Color and Light by James Gurney

Some of you may remember James Gurney's breathtaking work in the Dinotopia series. This is easily my favourite book on the topic of colour and light, and comes highly recommended by any artist worth their salt. While it speaks from the perspective of a traditional painter, the information in this book is invaluable for work in any medium.
