Hey hey o/ This lesson took a lot longer, glances as dissections, but i managed to pull through finally! I can say i really enjoyed the exposure to new things like intersections and especially textures despite their tiresome nature, i feel like i learnt a lot more this time around. I also grew to love playing with arrows to show perspective.

For some mistakes i spotted, other than the obvious marker on the texture page, whoops, was i kept catching myself doing more lines rather than just long and confident ones, speaking here on the intersections, both organic and the shapes. Not on all of them but on enough to spot that on my own. If there's any suggestions to get that fixed other than doing more exercises and focusing on my strokes, id be happy to hear, thank you!

Color and Light by James Gurney

Color and Light by James Gurney

Some of you may remember James Gurney's breathtaking work in the Dinotopia series. This is easily my favourite book on the topic of colour and light, and comes highly recommended by any artist worth their salt. While it speaks from the perspective of a traditional painter, the information in this book is invaluable for work in any medium.
