Hi, this is mina today I will be the one to Critique your work

Before starting I would like to congratulate you on finishing the plants part


For the organic arrows, I have nothing to say other than that you did a great job

for the Leaves exercise, everything was just great the flow was perfect but I think if you add texture to just practise it would've been better and I can see that the last leave is a little bit off but thank you for trying

The Branches exercise is good but I can see some scribbles that I believe you should've avoided as mentioned in the video.

plant drawings you made 7 and the exercise said 8 so can you add the last page if you forget to do so or draw it if you didn't

thanks for your hard work wish you all the best for the next lesson

Next Steps:

The last page of the plant drawings exercise

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Hello Mina! Thank you for taking the time to critique my lesson 4 and for the feedback provided.

Apologies for missing a page of plants, I made a mistake when uploading them to reddit and have posted the last page (#4: Maple Tree Branch) here: https://www.reddit.com/user/BowtieBuck/comments/vyizfp/missing_plant_lesson_4_drawabox/

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.
