    Hello there I call myself Quat and I am going to review your exercises for lesson 4.

    First of all: organic forms with counter curves. You did a good job following the instructions and the sausages look well made so good job on that.

    As for the Insects: Overall I can see that you didn't draw the intersection/joint for Most of the insects you drew .

    The demos look well made for the most part but The Wasp is drawn in a way that makes the abdomen look Disconnected from the thorax.

    I don't have much to say about the other demos other than that you did a great job.

    For the stag beetle I noticed that you attached the left "arm" in a wrong place in the thorax. While In reality limbs are supposed to be parallel to each others, or at least start from places that are parallel to each others. This is not really important for draw a box, but I thought I should point it out.

    as for the spider you did a good job with the construction, but you should have drawn the outline of the Shadow of the limbs that are touching the the wall Because them your spider looks stretched for no reason.

    From what I can see, The rest of your insects looks pretty good and I think that you are ready for lesson 5

    Next Steps:

    Your next step is Lesson 5

    Thank you for the critique. I will write down some of the points you mentioned because I will probably forget otherwise.

    Great job. I think that you are ready for lesson 4. I also just noticed that your Ellipses are not changing in degree, Don't worry I won't make you draw that exercise from lesson 2 (especially since lesson 4 got you covered), Good luck.

    Next Steps:

    Your next step is Lesson 4

    Hello again, If you really want to make more plants, it is better to do them for the 50:50 rule. Your exercises for draw a box are not meant to be pretty, even if you find it pretty it is more of a side effect rather than the main goal, your exercises a meant to show a good understanding of the lessons taught here and grinding will only get in the way of your learning.

    Hello there I call myself Quat and I am going to review your exercises for lesson 3 today

    First of all for The organic arrows and the leaves exercises: your lines look pretty clean and they imply a good understanding of how these objects exist in 3d space so great job.

    As for the branches exercise You tend to have Very Visible tails Which is expected from this exercise but you made it very noticeable , especially in your plant constructions, which is why I am going to ask you to draw another page of it.

    now for the plant constructions: and before I start I have to point out that More than half of the plants you drew were Demo plants and it is stated Here That more than half your plants are supposed to be non demo plants, I am not going to make you redo it but keep that in mind for future lessons.

    Also Please write the number of the pages in your future submissions, it is going to be a pain to specify some of the plants.

    Now assuming that you used the refrance provided in the demos your King oyster's head is a bit too small and that may stem from you rushing the drawing. Other than that you did a good job with the drawing.

    As for the Other textured mushroom I think that the construction is really good but the texturing on the holes of the mushroom looks flat. Since it isn't a major part of the lesson 3 I won't ask you to redo it, but I recommend trying the 25 texture challenge if you want to work on your texture skills.

    The other untextured mushroom Looks flat in terms of the stem and I will make you redo it.

    The fly trap plant looks squished to the left for some reason, but it is constructed really well for the most part so good job on that.

    The rest of the plants look well done and the only mistakes that I can see are stuff from the branches exercise.

    Next Steps:

    Your next step is doing one page of the Branches exercise And redraw the untextured mushroom

    When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

    The organic perspective exercise looks crampt , In your case the drawings are Comprehensive but you should keep an open eye for it becomes incomprehensible.

    But over all Your exercises look good enough for you to move on to the 250 boxes challenge

    Next Steps:

    Your next step is 250 boxes challenge

    Well done your branches are well made.

    as for the branches on the flower even though I would have preferred that you make them bigger but they are well done and you don't need anymore revision

    Next Steps:

    Your next step will be tackling Lesson 4

    Good luck

    Hello there l call myself Quat and I am going to review your exercises for lesson 3.

    First of all the organic arrows and the leaves exercises: your lines look confident and you did a great job conveying the Gesture in 3D for both exercises, and even though some of the leaves have a lot of unnecessary lines but you did well.

    As for the branches exercise: I noticed that some of your branches look wobbly/drawn as if you were not sure how you are supposed to draw them, and that is more common in almost all of the plants you drew, Also in the fly trap plant you seem to have a problem in terms of spacing your Ellipses on your Branches. I am going to ask you to make another page of the branches exercise and I recommend that you act patiently when ghosting and pay attention to the distance between each ellipse.

    As for the plants before I start please add a number and a name for the pages next time, it would help the critique giver point out specific problems more easily.

    In the daisy drawing I noticed that you made the stamp of the flower too small which made the plant look weird.

    In the fly trap like I pointed out earlier the spacing between ellipses is a bit lacking . I would like to also point out that the drawing is really small, which is not necessarily a mistake but taking more advantage of the size of the paper is more preferable since it would allow the viewer to understand what's in front of them more clearly. I would recommend This video from Draw like a sir on the topic if you want to check it out.

    There is also a flower that I assume you forgot to draw branches for, I am going to have to ask you to draw draw the branches for.

    The other plants don't have noticeable problems and for the most part you did a good job with them.

    Next Steps:

    draw 1 page of the Branches exercise and finish the flower that you drew

    When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

    Even though you still have some problems in terms of transitioning from light to dark, you will get better at it with practice.

    you did a good job with your revision and you can move to Lesson 3, or you can start the 25 texture challenge (although it is optional)

    Next Steps:

    Your next step is Lesson 3

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.
