Critique for lesson 2-

  1. For your arrows, you need to intersect the lines more so that they appear to move and twist in 3d space.

2.For your organic forms, you have managed to change the degree of the ellipses according to the viewer's angle. They look believable and 3d.Try to maintain a simple sausage shape for your convenience.

3.Textures- your gradients from light to dark are good and so are your dissections. You can practice more textures by doing the 25 texture challenge later in the course.

  1. Form+organic intersections- You have managed to convey the intersecting relationships of the forms. You have left some forms (eg the cone and pyramid in pg2). As you practice more, these concepts will become easier, but for this lesson, it is good.

In the organic intersections, try to add contour lines only when absolutely required, because adding too much of them can look messy and scribbled. Extend the shadows more(they follow the surface of the form beneath) to convey the form as solid more efficiently.

Next Steps:


  1. Arrows(1pg) (use ghosting method to draw more confidently and intersect the lines more. Think about how the arrow will progress in 3d space, that is, from background to foreground)

2.Organic forms(contour curves-1 pg) (maintain a simple sausage form and add contour curves carefully, following the surface of the sausage forms)

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

How to Draw by Scott Robertson

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.
