@Griffin-McPherson I like how clean all the silhouettes are without additional background objects. I also love the reflections in the sword! Super cool idea! You're right that the deck of the ship is a little confusing, but I also think you're right about color and lighting helping that. I'm excited to see it finished!
I’m loving the podcast. In one of the episodes Jake talked about the 3 phases for beginner artists, and what goals you should be striving for in each phase. (How many hours to draw per day, how many sketchbooks to fill per year, etc.)
Does anyone know which episode that was? I want to go back to it and can’t find it.
These are looking really nice! As for your question on how many drawings should you do for practice, do you mean in one single practice session? I usually just do a 30 minute session on https://line-of-action.com/. However, practice is unique to each person. Practice as much as you feel like you need to.
Thanks for the suggestions and offers to help, everyone! I was going to post my thumbnails here, but eventually just come up with a brand new idea using simpler shapes. Figured that will be easier, since I'm new to creating compositions that tell a story. I might not get it done in time for the deadline today, but I'll still share it when I'm finished!!
