One more day, one more time to study!
The character breakdown of today - an interesting piece of armor. SUPER hard to do, honestly. Since everything was there, was hard to figure out where the pieces were:

@chiara.arcidiaco thanks for the kind words and the question!
What I try to do is first trace the lines above the drawing, but not really just trace: I try to build the character from the ground-up (from basic shapes to final form) and then I try to repeat the process, but this time only using the image as a reference.
E.g.: If I'm studying a face, on top of the image I'll start drawing just a circle, to understand where is the top of the head and the nose, then I draw the centerline. After, I try to understand how the artist split up the circle to understand where are the lines for the eyes and eyebrow, what are the distance between them, and on, and on.
I'll try to make a video or gif of the process and post it here 😬👍
And today's progress on the 3-point perspective assignment. I tried to fix the pillars at the top with the lesson on repetition in perspective that Mark showed in the lesson. In the end, I made thicker pillars but I think it turned out alright.
