over a month to do this exercise. I can't believe I've finally finished it!

I have to be honest, I don't think I really understand the second part of the exercise.

Besides the fact that I haven't been very good at making boxes (I'm working on them, but they still come out a bit rectangular) I don't think I really understood what I had to follow for real.

That is, if I did the ellipsis following the minor-axis I almost certainly did an ellipsis that did not follow the shape of the "kite".

If, on the other hand, I followed the form of the "kite" I almost certainly got the minor-axis thing wrong.

That is, I did not understand what I had to give priority to, in one way or another something came out wrong, in several cases I made a mistake in the ellipse just because I went into the ball and I did not know what I had to follow first, if the shape of the '"kite" or align to the minor-axis.

Anyway, I did my best to finish this exercise. A criticism that helps me to better understand the point of the exercise (and my mistakes) is always more than welcome.

ComicAd Network is an advertising platform built for comics and other creative projects to affordably get the word out about what they're making. We use them for our webcomic, and while they don't pay much, we wanted to put one of their ad slots here to help support other creatives.
The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.


Admittedly this is one of the few recommendations that are second-hand, as I've never had the pleasure of working through Stan Prokopenko's videos. That said, I have seen enough to know that they're highly accessible, and tackle figure drawing with an approach steeped in form and construction. They're also some of the most widely used figure drawing resources on the internet, with a wealth of free content to peruse.
