    Alright, thank you. I'll see how far I can get with the basic ellipse guide along with the skills I have right now.

    Thank you for leaving me advice! I also noticed that all the leaves on my pomegranate plant were extremely flat. I tried making up for for those flat leaves with the final drawing which had a more 3d feel for the petals of the flower.

    As for the shading that I did for the leaf where I marked ignore, I tend to get carried away sometimes with shading. I know uncomfortable always says to not worry about detail too much, but I didn't listen and here I am. I'll make sure to focus more on forms first since the shading was supposed to be following a stem that was wrongly placed which cause the weird feel.

    Lastly, the reference I used for the branches in the pomegranate plant were relatively thin, so I didn't bother using the sphere to connect the cylinders. This was a mistake as it left the branches feeling flat and lifeless. I incorporated the sphere in lesson 4 with insects like the stick grasshopper which have bodies that mimic branches.

    Again, thank you for the critique.

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.
