Organic arrows: Good job on making them flow through 3d space and compressing on the farther end! And also, extra points for making the tip of the arrow turn, too! i do notice wobbley lineweight though, so remember: line weight is always applied confidently!

Organic forms: Very solid, great work! you did a great job in gradually making the ellipses and contour curves in the center less visible than the one that are more near to the end of the sausages

Texture analysis: Perhaps the second texture's gradient had a slight sudden transition in the middle towards sparse, but that's okay in my book. Props for not scribbling!

Dissections: Great job!! You break the silhouette when needed and also rounded your forms

Form intersections: Good job on maintaing your shapes shallow and equilateral! A small tip for your future warmups where you do this exercise again: Install a 3d software on your pc and try to replicate the intersections you make so that you can make sure they are done correctly (but only do so after commiting to marking the intersection)

Organic intersections: One issue that i found here is that in the second page, the big sausage wouldn'nt have one side standing up like that. Maybe if you'd add another sausage right next to it to make that happen sure, but like this it feels too unnatural. by nature, it'd be laying flat on the floor (you can picture in your mind how it'd look it).

Overall a fantastic submission with minor errors you'll hopefully work on, if you'd like to work on your textures you can begin the 25 texture challenge as a side-quest from your next lesson. But anyway, you're now ready for the leafy lesson...

Next Steps:

... Lesson 3!

Thank you so much for taking time to critique my lesson 2, I have been waiting for a long time. It was worth it!

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.


This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
