I drew the fish first and noticed I was getting very caught up in the details before solidifying the shapes. Honestly, the shapes were just really hard to see in the fish (I was looking at my computer, the image in my notebook was printed after the fact). The birds were my second and third attempts at focusing on basic shapes within the form. Thank you for making this wonderful class. I really enjoy the way you break things down and how you really teach strategies for becoming a better illustrator. I aim to continue through all the different series.
