This one was a real twist. I didnt feel like i learnt as much as the other lessons, nor did i output work that i could see in line with the rest. The main issues i encountered was a lack of patience when it comes to subdividing every little thing and curve, which ended up doing it a bit poorly. Using the whole page was another issue i couldnt get around much, even the boxes done sometimes ended up a bit too deformed due to their size and foreshortening.

I also did not subdivide my objects in paint.net like i usually did with some animals/insects/plants, which lead to a lot of sloppy drawings. However i do plan to do some more objects, and also for lesson 7 do divide enough to understand whats happening.

Still, i dont like drawing with a ruler much, but maybe that'll change. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Admittedly this is one of the few recommendations that are second-hand, as I've never had the pleasure of working through Stan Prokopenko's videos. That said, I have seen enough to know that they're highly accessible, and tackle figure drawing with an approach steeped in form and construction. They're also some of the most widely used figure drawing resources on the internet, with a wealth of free content to peruse.
