Lesson 5: Applying Construction to Animals
12:26 AM, Saturday September 18th 2021
At last, I've finally finished this lesson. I took a break while I was finishing my shark drawing, so if the quality of my drawing diminishes past the shark, it might be because of that.
Anyways, I have to say, this lesson is on a whole different level than the last. It's much more difficult, specifically drawing the heads/faces. Fortunately, it got easier as I kept drawing more and more.
This lesson took me a long time to complete, probably because I found myself spending so much time adding the final line passes to all of my drawings. I knew I wasn't supposed to do this, yet I found so much enjoyment in seeing the whole thing done that I kept doing it anyways, regardless of time consumption.
Another area where I found some difficulty was the paws. I had to draw a box (lol) to help me draw the lines that would conform the sides of the paws somewhat in the correct perspective. I don't know if I should do this or not. Also, drawing while taking hints from the reference helped me tremendously when arranging the perspective of the body and the position of the legs. Again, I am unaware if I should do this or not.
Please, if you have the time, criticize my work constructively so I can better myself.
