So the thing to keep in mind most of all is that Drawabox isn't about drawing animals, or plants, or vehicles, or organic subject matter, or hard-surface subject matter. It all works together towards the specific, limited goals discussed back in Lesson 0's first page (primarily developing students' spatial reasoning skills). Lessons 6 and 7 continue to develop this, but through a very different lens from the previous ones, which helps students explore the problem from a very different angle.
That doesn't mean you are in any way required to push through the whole course - you should feel free to branch off into other things whenever you like - but I did want to clarify what appeared to be a general misunderstanding of how the course itself is structured.
When it comes to figure, Michael Hampton's a good choice, though my preference (as far as online resources go) drifts more to Steve Huston, specifically because he teaches in an analytical fashion that matches how I learned from a class with Kevin Chen. Hampton's definitely analytical as well, but the specific methodology used in the class I took was really helpful for me, so I was pleased when I found someone teaching the same way online recently.
