    Hello again!

    Thanks for the reply and the correction images, they're really helpful. I'm glad you gave me such a thorough review because this lesson was hard to understand.

    The first two images were taken from the demos:

    And these are the last two:

    I didn't draw the other leaves for the sunflower because i wasn't quite sure how to approach that, should I have drawn a heart shape from the get go?

    Anyway, thanks again!

    Hello!

    Thank you for such an in-depth critique, the tips you gave have been a big help during the revisions; drawing bigger is really useful to understand what I'm trying to do and how I'm doing it, and I tried to take my time with the branch construction, while it wasn't perfect I do think that it went a lot better than last time I tried these.

    Please let me know if any other tips can help me improve further!

    The revision seems better, they stack more naturally now and the perspective is nice too.

    The intersections are fine as well.

    Remember to keep practising the completed lessons and good luck on your journey!

    Next Steps:

    Move on to the next Lesson, and don't forget about the 50-50 rule

    Hello, I’ll be doing your critique today!

    Organic Arrows

    Good sense of depth and variety of arrows. Nice and smooth lines, the hatching is done well too.

    Organic forms with contour lines

    The ellipses rotate very well and follow the motion of the sausage great work here!

    The contours look a little flat, try to ghost them like you would an ellipse and then when you are ready, draw an overshooting curve.

    Texture

    These textures… wow

    Perfect transition from dark to light, great use of shadows!

    Dissections

    More amazing textures! They wrap around the forms like they belong there!

    Form Intersections

    Excellent work! great hatching and intersections!

    Organic Intersections

    This too is great! You would do great in future lessons!

    Next Steps:

    Move on to Lesson 3 and keep it up!

    Hello, I’ll be doing your critique today!

    Organic Arrows

    Good sense of depth, especially on the second page. the hatching is done quite well too.

    Organic forms with contour lines

    The ellipses rotate although some of them (mainly the ones at the edge) could use more rotation based on the line

    The contours aren’t confident, did you try to ghost an ellipse before drawing it? some of them don’t rotate as they should and a lot of them aren’t overshooting so that might be contributing to the issue. This might help you understand my point:

    https://d15v304a6xpq4b.cloudfront.net/lesson_images/77f2ca1c.jpg

    Texture

    The texture analysis is very nicely done! I really like how you handled the brick and the scales.

    The dark side seems to be a bit too thick for your gradation making it appear like the texture should be darker there, but the light side is perfect

    Dissections

    More good looking textures here, I love how some of them interact with each other.

    Form Intersections

    Good variety of shapes, but it isn’t clear where the intersections are, if there are any. The linework is really light.

    https://d15v304a6xpq4b.cloudfront.net/lesson_images/8d4a68c8.jpg

    Organic Intersections

    You’re not supposed to put shadows on the form that is creating them and some shadows look a bit awkward

    https://d15v304a6xpq4b.cloudfront.net/lesson_images/516f8d4f.jpg

    You'll get better as you go on, but intersections, ellipses, and organic forms are really important in the later lessons so i just want to know if you understand the concept and you can move on

    Next Steps:

    I'd like you do do another page of the organic intersections, keep these things in mind:

    1. How the forms interact with each other (Imagine tetris but with sausages)

    2. How the contours curve around each form and how they change their angle based on that (try to ghost and overshoot the contours)

    3. How the shadows interact with what's under it (Line weight is fine but focus on the shadows for now)

    Can you also send a more clear picture of your form intersections? I really can't where the intersections are.

    When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

    Hello, I’ll be doing your critique today!

    Organic Arrows

    Extremely nice sense of perspective and depth; in some of the arrows you’ve drawn the hatched lines on the outside, we’re trying to indicate a shadow that helps add to the depth like so:

    https://d15v304a6xpq4b.cloudfront.net/lesson_images/f875589f.jpg

    Organic forms with contour lines

    The ellipses are drawn well and they curve along with the sausage well. But they don’t rotate like I’d expect them to. This might help:

    https://d15v304a6xpq4b.cloudfront.net/lesson_images/dc19ce85.jpg

    Remember that the angle of the ellipse changes depending on the view:

    https://i.imgur.com/rXLBxSg.png

    The contours have less of an issue with the angles but can be improved still.

    Texture

    Good analysis, I the last analysis the darkness is starting from left, yet the texture is darkening on the right, but it's fine.

    Dissections

    Good textures, they wrap around the form well and break the silhouette well.

    Form Intersections

    It seems like you understand the concept, but some of them (mainly the third page) don’t have the intersections drawn on them.

    Organic Intersections

    Great sausages, they feel almost real on the first page! Nice shadows on the first page, they seem a little too thin on the second page though.

    I hope this helped!

    Next Steps:

    Redo the 2 pages of Organic Forms with Contour lines (keep the angles in mind and ghost the lines until you are ready)

    Complete the missing intersections on the Form Intersections exercise

Marco Bucci's Getting Started with Digital Painting

Marco Bucci's Getting Started with Digital Painting

Marco Bucci's got a ton of great courses available on proko.com, including some of the best videos you can find on using colour and light. Since a lot of our students want to break into working with digital painting however, I thought this course in particular would be a great start to get into the weeds with how to navigate the confusing world of layers, brushes, and more.

This course highlights programs across the full spectrum of options, ranging from the current industry standard Adobe Photoshop, to the Free-and-Open-Source darling Krita, as well as the mobile favourite, Procreate.
