Hello Matt, I worked on your Three Shapes tutorial under the “figure drawing a layered approach” this week. I did my best to only use the shapes and “outlines” and it was more challenging than I expected! In areas where I understand the anatomy I have strong urges to overlap lines and use construction rather than just the simple shape.
A couple questions for you:
1. After laying in my initial shapes lightly, I tend to go back and press harder with my pencil. Any thoughts on how I could improve line quality?
2. I’m not sure what the criteria for moving to the next course/subject is, I assume I could spend a long time working on just three shapes? I’ll rely on your feedback and if you see I’m applying the basic principles relatively well, I’ll move on!
