Preston Blair Lesson 5

Here's my lesson 5.

This was the hardest so far.

On the last two i will admit to some lightboxing ( cheating ). Although i didn't rely on it completely, i used it to see what was going on because i find lines become very abstract after a while and its difficult to eyeball scale and shape!

Hope everyone else does well and gives me some tips!

All i can say is try messing with the angles and perhaps break this up into segments and perfect those if you have the time. I also tried using the box and including an angled centre line in CG. It kinda helps.

Good work, you seem to be pretty familiar with the shapes now. I like the way your first attempt looks.

I find the more i try to perfect something, them more life i suck out of the original.. 0_o

Looks good!

You might lose a bit of the life but the point is to become good at placement and shapes. Once that is understood you can practice putting some life into them.
