@ambiirae yes. It was a useful and surprisingly fun exercise
Master study no. 1
The illustration looks deceivingly simple but, oh man, it’s so detailed and not at all my natural style. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s the OPPOSITE of how my brain functions
The focus on shape and design composition is taking a lot of focus on my end but I’ve been learning a lot! I’ve always wondered how illustrators could make a piece defy perspective and have wonky lines but still have them look appealing and believable. Basically, the secret is to not lift your pen. And don’t draw constructive sketches. Just draw shapes
I hope that made sense hahaha.

@donnamakesart this is lovely! I’m not very good with trees and general foliage. I would love to do this exercise as well. Now you’ve inspired me. Hehe
I felt a bit dishearted with it... Maybe I’ll revisit this in the future.

@donnamakesart you’ve got a real softness . I enjoy following your sketchbook!
@KayPotter aw thanks! This thread gives me closure to move on with next projects :))
Update on the master study. This is kind of proving how, even when we copy other artist’s work, you will draw it differently. My hand naturally drew the elements one size too big haha.
I suspect this was done traditionally then finished digitally but I have figured a way to fake the textures on Procreate. It just takes a lot of conscious work
The biggest take away was really the shape language. I’m not sure if I want to incorporate it in my style but it’s another tool in my tool box
