Lesson 2: Contour Lines, Texture and Construction
2:57 PM, Thursday May 13th 2021
Phew! Finally finished this one after a while. Struggled a lot with the ellipses / organic intersections ): All feedback appreciated! :)
Hi Holysnacks ! Congratulations on finishing lesson 2!
You did a very good job on the arrows, don't be afraid to apply more aggressive perspective though, try compressing the farther end more when you continue to practice them during warm ups.
Regarding the organic forms exercise, the linework on those seems to be very shaky. Remember to go first for drawing confident curves (you're doing it perfectly on the arrows exercise) before going for precision.
Your texture analysis exercise looks great ! You perfectly understood that one.
On the dissections one your sausages look much better when compared to the organic forms ones. I think you nailed that one also. When practicing it in the future you shouldn't be afraid to break past the silhouette a little more. That really helps highlight the texture you are using.
Your forms intersections look great ! Nothing to comment on those.
On your organic intersections one you're getting the weights, the wrapping and the shadowing right. But the actual forms look very woobly (The same problem as in the organic forms exercise). As I mentioned before, you did get this right on the dissections exercise. Try to draw the curves more confidently first and then go for maintaining a consistent width along the whole form.
Overall you did a fantastic job ! The only difficulty I see is when drawing the sausages. I will request you try doing both another page of the organic forms and another page of the organic intersections exercises before moving on to lesson 2. Try to draw the curves more confidently (as you did on the dissections exercise) and maintaining a consistent width throughout the whole form. Also keep your forms simple, the form doesn't really need to bend in more that one direction. Reviewing that part of the lesson might help you also. Good luck !
Try doing one more page of the organic forms and another page of the organic intersections exercises before moving on to lesson 2.
Thank you so much for reviewing my work! Your comments were really helpful and insightful.
I've done another page of the organic forms and interactions, focusing more on producing a solid, confident shape. Here's the link! https://imgur.com/a/bHRVAVC Let me know what you think :)
Hello again ! Your organic forms now look much better, and the organic intersections exercise is perfect, great job !
I think you are ready to move on to lesson 3 ! Though remember to keep practicing these exercises during warmups.
Good luck !
