I hope you are well,
Starting with your sausages.
Those are done really well, it shows that you have a great understanding of 3d forms and how they react to each other in space when you add shadows you do think about the curvature of the form it is cast on. But sometimes you add those lines to your sausages, this is not a bad thing to do, but there are places where it definitely confused viewers than anything. Additionally, those are not simple sausages, as it seems to me you add those stripes to them.
Moving onto your animals
Those look really great, but our focus isn't to make good-looking drawings. It is to learn a "thing" through exercises.
That said you can use methods learned in lesson to make a solid and believable drawing that focuses more on form than looks. There are a few minor things that I want to point out:
Make your cranium smaller. I went over a couple of your heads and drew brow ridges as you sometimes miss this step and by missing it you get a flat and confusing result. Keep in mind that with construction we want to draw by piling forms on top of each other. Step by step, patiently without winging any 2d forms.
Remember to not cut back into your shapes. We work additively, meaning we only add more 3d mass on previous mass, we don't subtract.
There are times where your linework isn't as consistent as in other parts of your work. Give each line as much given patient as it needs to be confidently made with ghosting.
There were only a few minor mistakes done by you. You clearly grasped how to make believable drawings with 3d forms and masses. Your linework is mostly great, but there are rarely lines that could be a lot better if given more time. I will mark this lesson as complete.
I do know that Soprano already did a critique for you, but I feel it is missing guidance for you and he didn't point out any of your mistakes.
If you have any questions feel free to ask me here,
Have fun during your journey,
