I figured i'd post this stuff in my own thread so I don't bog down the resolution thread with this real remedial stuff.
I'm starting on drawspaces tutorials, and working through them. I probably should spend more time or repeat each lesson several times, but i'm doing what my lunch time (1 hour a day with interruptions) can afford me.
Getting familiar with my pencil set, and practicing negative space and then shapes on a picture of a duck candle.
Life draw for the same 2 lessons
Symmetry (first shape provided, second was a design yourself thing) - Apparently it's good practice to do at least one of those a day, so i'll work on it.
Terrible stuff. But hey, i gotta start somewhere.
