Texture study and dissections were definitely the hardest.

Hi. I'll be handling your submission.

Your arrows look good. Looks like you get the idea.

organic forms withb contour lines look good but the sausages look pinched and inflatted in some areas. And these forms aren't supposssed to be forshortened in this exercise. Your textures look exeptional and as a sidenote I really like your referance choices. And your textures analysis is really good. Honestly could you give some pointers on textures cause I need some help.

Your form intersections look good but some spheres look forshortened in some areas. So, i'll be giving you a page of that.

Organic intersections look good as well

Next Steps:

Please a page of organic forms with countour lines. And please try keep them simple and the same width.

And a page of form intersections with the same level fprshortening applied to every form.

Good luck

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Re-did Organic forms with contour lines and form intersections (spheres are hard!).

Great good job. an yes spheres are a pain. Your line weight form intersections are a bit messy but good work. Remember not to chicken scratch and you'll be fine.

Next Steps:

go to lesson 3 and have fun.

Staedtler Pigment Liners

Staedtler Pigment Liners

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
