Thank you for having a look at my work!

I took quite a long break between the branches exercise and the first plant because I felt overwhelmed, but here I come again! For the plants I did half of them with only constructions and the other half with some details, but not strictly in this order, hope it's still good!

Thank you!!

Hi There! First, congrats for getting through the lesson. Here is my critique:

Arrows: The arrows look good. Don’t forget perspective, start large and taper smaller. Try keep it consistent.

Leaves: The leaves look great! I can see you added form to the edges of the leaves. The twist in the leaves looks correct. Try not add cast shadow, instead of outlining textural forms.

Branches: Branches: Well done on the branches! Your ellipses changed angle where appropriate and were kept consistent. Your line strokes look confident as well.

Plants: Your forms are well drawn. Cast shadows are drawn nicely to depict texture.

Very well done on this exercise. Of course, keep doing Lesson 1 warmups as you are heading through the next lessons.

Next Steps:

Continue to lesson 4.

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
