@DarleneAnico Well, it sounds so amazing that they would absolutely need to limit the number of students. I'm so glad you're able to take it! It's possible that some classes will be taken down and replaced, and then some classes might not be available before a live class is offered. Of course, I'm just guessing. And there is plenty for me to work on, including fundamentals, while I figure this all out, so I think I might still pay for the year.

RE: Missing Courses
@DarleneAnico Yes, I can't find Dynamic Hands and Heads, and the Book Covers classes, nor can I find the one you're talking about. This matters to me because I was hoping to pay for a year and would like to know if they remove classes for various reasons.
RE: I’m back! *update: Semi-Finished Piece critique needed :)
@nadyart Hi Nadya, I kept thinking about this piece in the days after you posted this final version. I'm sure that means I really love it and wish I had created it. This means no feedback is necessary but I wanted to tell you that I kept thinking, what if the bridge is the wolf? The wolf and the bridge echo each other because the log is curved like the wolf's body and the branches of the log look like legs, and what if he is slyly looking back at her as she crosses?
RE: I'm asking for new critiques for the redo of Oz...
@Laurasketches Hi again, I think you did achieve the girlish look. Since I'm new here, I tried to figure out your question for those more familiar with the forum, and decided that I was simply having problems seeing your sketches properly, so I put them all together to take a look.
So now I am able to answer with a few quick things: both of her shoes are barely on, which looks too uniform and I think it could be interesting to find a place to put one shoe, play up the jumbled look by having elements partly and mostly going out of the frame (especially the house, because I don't need to see the entire house), and slant the text the way you did in thumbnail 10.
Of course I would much rather see what Lee White says, but at least I'll be able to see if doing this helped you get better feedback, and then I'll be sure to do it too. I was unable to see the border of your most recent sketches and was unsure of how the image would fit onto the cover.
RE: January snow wip. Feedback
@peteolczyk It's not smooth for me. I have the six steps posted on my wall right where I do all this work (purposely in my face, ha), and still mix up steps, particularly 4 and 5. One thing I have not yet resolved is when to do a character study for what is supposed to be a simpler piece. It can be confusing that a sufficient character design can sometimes emerge in the thumbnails that aren't really supposed to be fully drawn! And sometimes it doesn't happen. If I hit a point where I can't answer important questions about a character it's sometimes that I need to start over, because I think character design is step 1, research and development.
So basically i go back to the drawing board a lot. I know that it's in direct conflict with this urgent feeling of wanting to get things done.
RE: Critique request for book spreads.
@xin-li This is lovely, congratulations on nearing the completion of so much beautiful work! I really like your lettering, so none of my suggestions are needed but just thought i would share some things: I like that it's purposely irregular, so perhaps if the front foot of the first A were lowered, the two top serifs of the Y were made to be uneven, and if the S had serifs that were more like the serifs on the top of the A and G.
RE: WIP Please critic!
@phoenix-yip I think it's a really well done image, I love the colors you used and the way you composed and rendered it, but can you tell me more about the flying vehicle? is the person following the tracks? Closer to the viewer, the tracks make it look like the person was hopping. Farther away, it looks like the person started running.
I noticed your other post but got caught up in trying to figure out what was happening and was distracted from telling you.
RE: Jan WIP-2 options (critiques welcome)
@Braxton I much prefer the simplicity of the first one, but would would simplify it further and take away the second paw print. I do think it needs some kind of added tension, though. The only example I can give is something like making the track really deep, and the person needs to dig a tunnel to get to the bottom. Just some sort of added dimension to the concept.
