hello uncomfortable hope your doing well, Ive finished my redos! sorry for being late, mentally ive been doing poorly and the art burnout got to me hard, this lesson was super difficult and I gave up multiple.times while trying and eventually I just pushed through even though my results were frustratingly garbage.

thanks for the critique as always. (reference photos used)

This is definitely a considerable improvement. Your subdivided boxes are looking pretty solid, and you're clearly going to far greater extents when applying those subdivisions to your actual object constructions. There is certainly still room for improvement of course - specifically in the construction of your boxes (keeping the convergences consistent and avoiding divergence as we move farther back in space), as well as in following those convergences as you construct your forms. For example, I noticed that in your slot machine, the bulk of the machine ended up twisted relative to the base.

While this glaring mistake does exist in that drawing, I am happy with the fact that you continued to roll with it, rather than trying desperately to fix it. As a result, while that mistake is present, nothing else went awry because of it, and the construction still came out feeling pretty solid, even if it was not perfectly accurate to your reference image.

One suggestion I have moving forward is that you try and use actual photos (especially high-resolution ones) for your references rather than 3D models, and wherever possible in this lesson especially, try to work from real objects around you. The other lessons don't allow for this quite as much, but since this one's focused on "everyday objects", it is considerably easier to find things that qualify.

I'll go ahead and mark this lesson as complete.

Next Steps:

Feel free to move onto the 25 wheel challenge, which is a prerequisite for lesson 7.

This critique marks this lesson as complete.

Yup, you're fine to try out those challenges beforehand, as you've met all of their prerequisites.

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.
