Hello, Shrekyboi11! I’ve broken down the homework critique below:

Lines

Superimposed Lines: pretty solid; on the longer lines, there’s some slight arching. Ensure you draw from the shoulder, not the elbow. If that doesn’t work, try consciously arching the lines in the opposite direction.

Ghosted Lines: Good.

Ghosted Planes: good.

Ellipses:

Table of ellipses: the ellipses fit snugly within the frames. However, some are deformed and wobbly-looking, probably due to hesitation and course-correction. Be sure to ghost through the ellipses first, then execute with confidence.

Ellipses in planes: the same issue occurs here as the one mentioned above, albeit less frequently. One of the planes on the top of the page is missing an ellipse.

Funnels Exercise: a couple of the ellipses have been drawn through over 3 times - try to avoid that in the future.

Boxes:

Plotted Perspectives: pretty good. The boxes would benefit from tighter hatching because right now, the loose hatching sort of gets lost under all the other lines.

Rough Perspective: Question - was a ruler used for the front faces of the boxes? All lines except for the frame and the horizon line should be ghosted. If there was no ruler used, I apologize for assuming it’s just holy hell those lines are straight as a stick, it’s impressive! Other than that, pretty good.

Rotated boxes: Pretty decent, though it’d be beneficial to revisit this exercise again later in the course.

Organic Perspective: pretty good; the top frame in the second page from the top was a bit muddled. Maybe add some lineweight to that 2nd box closest to the viewer to make it appear as though it’s ahead of the box behind it.

Overall, solid work! The ghosted lines are good, just work on execution of ellipses. Hope this was helpful!!

Next Steps:

1 page of Table of Ellipses. The first half of the page's frames shouldn't have any waves/lines cutting through it. Remember to ghost, ghost, ghost and then execute with confidence and draw through 2-3 times.

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Oh dear, I didn't realize this had been submitted for official critique. My bad, please ignore this critique

It's all good I made 1 post, and at that time I wasn't subscribed to the patron. Then half an hour later I decided to get the patron subscription and made another post this time with the official critique. So, I might have confused you there sorry! But, I'm very thankful for your response and yes I did used a ruler for the faces of the boxes, I should have been more careful. Thank you so much for critiquing!

The Art of Brom

The Art of Brom

Here we're getting into the subjective - Gerald Brom is one of my favourite artists (and a pretty fantastic novelist!). That said, if I recommended art books just for the beautiful images contained therein, my list of recommendations would be miles long.

The reason this book is close to my heart is because of its introduction, where Brom goes explains in detail just how he went from being an army brat to one of the most highly respected dark fantasy artists in the world today. I believe that one's work is flavoured by their life's experiences, and discovering the roots from which other artists hail can help give one perspective on their own beginnings, and perhaps their eventual destination as well.
