Hi Brick,

I can see you put a lot of attention to detail (fur, accessories, etc), which is all good, however the overall drawing does not convey the feeling of solidity. I would recommend going through lessons 3-5 to get a better feel how to do 3D construction from primitive shapes (spheres, sausages, cones, etc) that will help you make the drawing more believable (if that's what you are aiming for).

Artistically (subjectively :P ) speaking, I kind of like the raw style of it - feels like a illustration of sacred monkey one would find in an ancient jungle temple ^^.

Thanks a lot Rokas,i appreciate your comment and yeah i definetely need to improve my construction, but it'll still be be a while until i reach lesson 3 and i think it's better to finish the 250 box challenge and lesson 2 before going to lesson 3 and beyond.What do you think?

Hi, sorry for late reply. For sure follow the website's course as officially suggested!

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.


This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
