Sorry but noticed that for my organic forms with contour ellipses and curves ... most of my ellipses that are suppose to show the side of the shape facing the viewer are actually on the side facing away from you instead face palm. Here are the assignments from lesson 2.

Hey hey, I'll be reviewing your homework today!!

All in all I think you did a great job. I noticed the little blunder with the organic forms but hey we all make mistakes sometimes. I'm sure you'll keep an extra eye on this when you do this as warm up sometime!

  • Your arrows are looking good, smooth and confident lines, no overdrawing or shaky lines. Good job!

  • For the organic forms I noticed your ellipses sometimes shoot over the form, it's nothing major, just make sure to ghost enough times before placing the line!

  • I really like your texture analysis, it looks great! I know it's hard with sharp shadows like in the paper and the scales but really try for a smooth transition from black to lighter, since the border is pretty good visible in the first two studies. Third one is good, though. Proof you're learning :D

  • The Dissections are great as well, breaking the silhouette, no hatching or dotting, great. Homework said 2 pages though :D

  • Intersections look good as well with confident and smooth lines and overdrawn ellipses. Everything seems to fit in the same place, nice! Here 4 pages were required though.

  • Your organic intersections look great as well, there's really nothing I can complain about.

So all in all great job! I do recommend doing the missing pages, just for training purposes but what I saw was great so I don't think you necessarily have to if you don't want to.

So either do that or onward to Lesson 3! Good luck!

Next Steps:

I recommend doing the missing pages, but you don't have to. You can go on to Lesson 3!

So sorry!! Looks like the other images/assignment sheets didn't upload eventhough I had them in the same folder. I'm re-uploading those two exercises. Hopefully this works and it shows the 2 and 4 pages. Thanks for the review!!

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
