They/them/their pronouns.

I'm a software engineer at Khan Academy, an education product, with a background in fine art and illustration. I'm a huge fan of communal learning through critique in artist communities.

Drawing process timelapse videos

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 28, 2017, 10:21 AM
Hi all! :wave:
I finally uploaded some timelapse recordings of me doing some drawing studies in Photoshop. If you're interested in seeing my process in detail, this is a great chance!

Alice long study (7.5 hours sped up to 8.5 minutes):

Alice warmup study (45 minutes sped up to 2 minutes):

Brass duck study (this is a really old one that I forgot to upload at the time) (2 hours sped up to 5 minutes):

Have a great weekend! :)

Crits and questions

Feel free to note me with questions or requests for critique! I really enjoy giving advice and constructive feedback to other artists. I'm best at giving feedback on composition, tonal contrast, and visual storytelling.

Also check out ProjectComment! It's an active group for artists to give each other direction and advice.
