I was about to critique your work, when I noticed two issues:

  1. You did this work a month ago, well before getting feedback on your Lesson 2 work. Students submitting for official critique are required to submit work that is recent, and that incorporates the feedback they received in their last critique.

  2. Based on the dating you provided on the pages themselves, you completed all the work for this lesson in two days, and it certainly reflects this fact in the work itself. While you've done quite a few drawings, the linework is quite rushed, and there are clear signs that this is not your best work.

For both of these reasons, I am not going to be critiquing this submission. I've cancelled it and returned the 2 credits to your account. In return for extremely cheap feedback on their homework, students are expected to adhere to specific requirements to ensure that the feedback given is relevant. Submitting older work, and submitting work that has not been completed to the best of your current ability (by taking your time with every single mark, applying the ghosting method consistently, etc.) makes this impossible.

Something to keep in mind when completing the lesson again - you don't need to cram as many drawings as possible into each page. One or two per page is fine. Make sure you're making full use of the space available to you on the page, as it helps push us to make use of our brain's capacity for spatial reasoning, and also helps engage our whole arm.

To make sure you don't rush through your work, I'd like you to only complete one plant drawing on a given day, no more than that. Give each drawing as much time as you have.

Ok, I'll do the lesson again. The thing is: I want so much to learn and improve at drawing that I wantend to get the knowlege quite fast and ended up rushing a bit, but not on purpose.

Thank you for the feedback and for the help.

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.
