Hi, congrats finishing second lesson.

Arrows : The tip of the arrows aren't as flowy as the rest of them. Try using the ghosting method for the tip.

Organic forms : They seem to be 3d and have weight so good job on that point.

Also you're missing contour curves exercise.

Texture : Your texture analysis are very good, since you focused on the cast shadows. Your textures on organic forms warp well around the forms, but they could have a gradient, with the texture being more pronounced at the extremities and less present at the part facing toward us, like if the viewer was a light source. That could have saved you time and would be a sign you really controlled the texture.

Form intersection : This is difficult exercise, but I think you did it p good. Also good job with line weight.

Organic intersections : The contour lines should have a more varying degree, especially since the sausages are bending and crushing each other. And again, the forms are substantial and there is weight to them. Congratulations on that.

Overall good job for this lesson.

Also I can see that 250 boxes challenge wasn't wasted ;)

Next Steps:

You can pass on to the lesson 3!

Good luck and keep it up )

I appreciate the feedback!

I'll be doing the 25 Texture challenge and I'll keep in mind what you said. It did indeed feel like I was overdoing it in a way that wasn't controlled.

Have a good one :)!

When it comes to technical drawing, there's no one better than Scott Robertson. I regularly use this book as a reference when eyeballing my perspective just won't cut it anymore. Need to figure out exactly how to rotate an object in 3D space? How to project a shape in perspective? Look no further.
