It's finally done! I have to say that textures was the hardest part, I liked the construction better. Looking forward to improve my texture & construction skills with Lesson 3!

Thank you for looking.

here's the review:

Arrows: OK

Contours on organic forms: OK, could also try varying degree of ellipse more when practicing in the future

Texture: OK

Dissections: some are rushed, but overall OK, could break from contours more (for example fur one is great, but in feather one feathers are too large and barely move from sausage form)

Intersections: OK

Organic intersections: OK

Overall you did great,

good job and good luck in the future lessons

Next Steps:

Lesson 3

Thank you for the review, I'm aware of the varying ellipses I fixed it with my current practices. I'm not very pleased with my textures, I want to focus on them with 25 Texture Challenge in the future. Cheers

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.
