This is such a great prompt, but always so intimidating to me. I get frustrated so easily when I've been at it for hours and everything looks wonky and the color is off. Do you have a suggested amount of time we should spend on these? I've also done some master value studies that have been enormously helpful and not quite as frustrating, but still intimidating to try and get close to a master.
I appreciated the changes to the Live Third Thursday session. I have felt for a while that the choices of entries critiqued have been based more on which ones included common mistakes that could help more people as opposed to a rating of which ones are best. I may be wrong, but I thought it was already basically done that way. Except for the 3 winning submissions of course.
I really appreciated that we touched on the topic of how the critiques can be hard to watch sometimes when one has worked hard on their submission and it doesn't get mentioned. Just having that fact acknowledged was nice.
It has been great watching the Third Thursday Contest develop and change since it first started. I think all the changes have been great.
All the lessons from this one were helpful as usual. Will, Jake and Lee you guys are doing a great job! @Will-Terry you are awesome! @Jake-Parker, you make us want to cry when you do layouts in seconds like that comic one! and @Lee-White you blew my mind with that color demo!
@Jake-Parker's Skyheart is almost funded, how awesome is that!! Take a look, back it if you can (because his work is all that and a box of cookies) and share it with your friends and family. Let's help get this project to its goal.
