First, I want to thank you Yasmina for this course. Your courses always help me to push and try new things! Always in your courses, I am finding and improving my sketches and I really love it. Thank you for inspiring me to push myself.
First I want to show how much in just this course I developed and changed how I see things or bring them up on a canvas. I used a same reference for a cat with a flowercrown on this picture. This was basically after with not a lot of time of sketching, but I just had to colour it and see how I can push it! Not bad, but I knew something was missing.
Which brings us to this spread of my reference picture as well, sketches of several state. From very rough (top left) to more stylized (bottom right). You can even see the middle one there! I liked the last sketch so much that I have used it as starting point for other Skillshare classes I have done and taken.
Your course also helped me to actually start thinking about drawing more than just one thing on the picture, like background etc.
Here's my first ever picture with a simple background, and of course. A cat with flower crown.
Thank you so much this course. It's really helping me to become more tuned to my own style and choices I take as an artist.
