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!

Steven Zapata's Secrets of Shading

Some of you will have noticed that Drawabox doesn't teach shading at all. Rather, we focus on the understanding of the spatial relationships between the form we're drawing, which feeds into how one might go about applying shading. When it comes time to learn about shading though, you're going to want to learn it from Steven Zapata, hands down.

Take a look at his portfolio, and you'll immediately see why.
