Lesson 2: Contour Lines, Texture and Construction
9:19 PM, Tuesday January 24th 2023
Lessons 2 had some very cool moments and some that were super frustrating.
I realy liked the texture tasks even though I had some troubles and, in the beginning, feared to even start.
-> Regarding the texture intersections, I know that I forgot to add the light effect (I discussed that on the discord server already and was told to move on even though only 2 sausages show a detail gradient)
What I really hated was the organic intersections. It was the first time I felt a task was much too tough. I got a headache due to this task several times and without external tools I would not have been able to draw the spheric intersections and some of the more complex cube intersections. In my opinion this task is a bit over the top regarding the difficulty level. You need experience with 3D objects to draw the intersections. I think it would be more beneficial to have at least one lesson were you train how to start with some simple intersections, with some more examples.
Beside that, I still se that my lines are not very confident. Most of the time that’s the case when I try to focus to much on the purpose of the task and forget to draw with the shoulder.
