    Update:
    Sorry for not posting here for some time; there’s been some changes. The problem with having the kind of schedule that I’ve agreed to is that you get the feeling of drowning and trying to survive each day. Also encourages the kind of mentality of “i’m just going to do this fast, if it looks like hammered shit i’ll leave it as is because i also have 4 more drawings to do”, which makes you stop enjoying doing art and i also don’t think that it’s helping you improve (since you don’t learn anything new, because you’re only focusing on finishing each day’s workload, however it may look).
    Enough whining, I won’t even upload the last drawings that I did because they are bad, to put it lightly.
    Disclaimer; I haven’t broken the contract. I had a talk with my brother and my friend to alter it. We’ve agreed to one piece of work per day, since that is enough (i guess concentrating on one thing at a time instead of multitasking is actually better for learning).

    So, right now I believe that I should focus on perspective. I want to improve my spatial intuition first (as opposed to portrait drawing for example, where I would use too many organic lines that are for now too hard to control). I’ll adjust the curriculum as needed, but here’s a first draft.

    Here’s the first three days of the revised contract:
    note that first day’s work is not one point perspective; I’ve only come up with the curriculum yesterday

    I'm kind of glad that you changed the contract, I was worried it'd burn you out. Dude your perspective drawings are amazing already, can't wat to see how you'll do that by the end of the perspective weeks :,D Love the attention to detail in the architecture and designs!

    haha awesome, the contract did indeed seem a bit too ambitious and I was worried about the things you've pointed out, doing just the same studies that cover such a wide topic over and over again isnt the best way to improve. Your current process seems a lot better, I absolutely love the idea behind the contract though and that you've made a promise to pay them if you don't do it, whatever gets you drawing! I can tell you'll improve very rapidly as it seems like you know what kind of studies you have to do and arent stuck in any kind of comfort zone. Really like those 2 value portrait studies, very nice work! Looking forward to seeing how fast you improve and if you can keep up the rest of the contract's time!

    beautiful lighting and shadow studies, couldn't help but linger on them as the 3dimensionality and details are so well expressed without any wasted effort

    very cool perspective stuff! Do you draw in the perspective grid anew each time?

    I don't know if you're gonna think this is a cool idea, but I have a little perspective hack i thought of as a kid: I'd put my sketchbook flat on the table and stick a thread on the perspective point (often off the page, so just on the table) using some tape. and then you can move the thread around getting perfectly converging perspective lines.I knwo you wanan work on intuitive perspective, but still I wanted to share this trick, lol

    dem circles in the sketchbook, do you use something to create those ellipses or are you just very good at it? :, )

    @mkingamess thank you ^^ yeah i try to strictly use grids for these weeks while i'm learning perspective,. I'm trying to develop a thinking workflow (designing everything from camera position to lens distance etc.).
    i know that trick too, works with rubber bands too (and more vanishing points as well) but i prefer working with lines
    the ellipses in the sketchbook are drawn by hand (i did 40 something days of warm-up like in my first post , amountin to about 3-4k ellipses )

    Dang I should do that, too :,) It's a very very valuable skill to learn. It's a good trick to make the lines, too I don't use it much either but... I dont do enough perspective stuff, that's why I hardly use it lol
    sO MANY ELLIPSES how did you not go mad? nerves of steel

    Hello,
    Sorry for the lack of updates. I've recently moved to Germany through a study abroad programme (erasmus+) and I haven't had time (or internet for that matter) for social media. Here's a couple of things that I've worked on in the meantime.

    wHERE IN GERMANY R U AT? By a chance near Hamburg? :, )))))

    those drawings are really good man. you have a great eye for constructive drawing and you get shapes nicely even, which is the most important thing about making such mechanical/machine drawings read and look neat
