    Could you elaborate what mapquest would be? Haven't heard about that.

    Hi there,

    Your Organic Arrows have a good flow and you are are allowing edges to overlap. However, I do see that you haven't applied a sense of perspective. Remember that the distance between the upper and lower edge of the arrows goes on increasing as they approach the viewer/viewing window.

    Your first page of Organic Forms with Contour curves does have consistent shapes, but I do see some tapering and squared edges on the second page which you can try to focus on in the incoming lessons. One thing to note here is not going over the lines more than twice even if the end result doesn't come out good. Keep practicing drawing curves with your shoulder and you will definitely get to creating smooth curves.

    For the Texture Analysis, avoid drawing the forms or the outer edges of the texture detail. Think about drawing and filling in just cast shadows. The shadows should be dense at the beginning which get sparse as you reach the end.

    Your Dissections are on track considering the fact that your are thinking of breaking the silhouette but you need to make sure that the texture also follows the curvature of the sausages.

    You did a great job with the Forms Intersections. You did cross hatch the sides that are facing towards the viewer which helps distinguish the forms more.

    And finally for the Organic Intersections you did well by keeping the forms consistent. Note the fact that your shadows need to be not sticking to the forms. Instead, just like other forms they should follow the curvature of the form below.

    Hope this can help!

    Next Steps:

    You can proceed to the next lesson. Good Luck!

    Congrats on overcoming a huge challenge!

    Good job on exploring a variety of different types of boxes. I see that you have pretty confident lines which is an essential part of the exercise. Though I did notice a few things. Certain pages have boxes in 1 or 2 point perspective. The 250 Box Challenge specifically focuses on drawing a box in 3 point perspective. The fact that you have drawn a diversity makes sure you know the anatomy of a box and you get how a box sits correctly in 3D space.

    Overall you did a decent job in completing the exercise and understood the purpose.

    Next Steps:

    To improve more on the accuracy of the lines you can practice superimposing lines. You can move on to the next lesson.

    Also try to leave feedback for other students. :)

    Good luck!

    Hey Iceblocker,


    A nice effort with super imposed lines. But for ghosted lines you have some frayed ends that don't connect (at least) with the start point. Also make sure your lines don't wobble. They should have a smooth flow from one point to another. For ghosted lines, when marking down the points just place tiny dots on paper instead of giving a focus on them and making them bigger.


    Ellipses don't have a wobble and are continuous. Good job on that! But when drawing them make sure you go through the ellipses 2 or 3 times. In the ellipses table, the ellipses should be kept within the bounds, each ellipse touching each other, without overlapping. On funnels, you've mostly done it, but don't forget that the minor axis has to cut the ellipses in 2 identical halves.


    On rough perspective, width lines should be parallel to horizon and height lines perpendicular to horizon. I know this might be hard, but make sure you keep this in mind for the future. For rotated box the corners for different boxes need to be at a close distance with each other. For organic perspective try to keep a consistent shape for the box. 250 box challenge will definitely help you tackle the rotated boxes.

    Have a good day :)

    Next Steps:

    Congrats on completing Lesson 1. You could move onto 250 box challenge. Take time to understand the concepts thoroughly. Good Luck!

    Thanks for the critique! I didn't expect anyone to see my work so promptly. Firstly I wasn't careful enough of somethings while drawing but now I'll try to make sure I keep your things in mind while drawing. Again thanks for taking your time to review my work!

The Art of Brom

The Art of Brom

Here we're getting into the subjective - Gerald Brom is one of my favourite artists (and a pretty fantastic novelist!). That said, if I recommended art books just for the beautiful images contained therein, my list of recommendations would be miles long.

The reason this book is close to my heart is because of its introduction, where Brom goes explains in detail just how he went from being an army brat to one of the most highly respected dark fantasy artists in the world today. I believe that one's work is flavoured by their life's experiences, and discovering the roots from which other artists hail can help give one perspective on their own beginnings, and perhaps their eventual destination as well.
