Finished the plants lesson, and I'm not too happy with it. The first batch of plant drawings here are absolutely awful, but I started to get a better handle on it about halfway through. I think I've got a decent grasp on the idea of flow and I did make some general improvements, but I'm still struggling with trying keep my branches straight, making the ellipses solid and figure out how to properly apply texture and how to make my leaves and petals fold better. I'm going to do a few pages of leaves/petals and branches after this to hone in on some of these faults.

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
