Hey everybody!  Here's a sketchbook tour video I did.   Check it out and let me know what you think.   I love looking back on my old art work and seeing how much I've progressed over the last few years.   I owe a huge thank you to Dennis and Nolan for creating such an amazing resource for artists around the world,  the Let's draw course progressed my skill level in a huge way.   Also thanks to everyone who's helped me,  instructed me,  and encouraged me over the years. 

! No longer available


The let's draw was truly amazing,  such a huge help to me.   Before the let's draw course I was struggling with many aspects of drawing.   When I started taking the let's draw course,  I could see how it was helping me.   I could see my progress.  And that was really exciting.   I would recommend this course to anyone. 

Thanks again Dennis and Nolan,  keep up the great work!

Just watch your video.  Agree Let's Draw is an incredible course. You have made great progess.

You may want to write on the cover of your sketcbooks the month/year you start the book, and maybe the date you finish it.  Like journals they become very valuable with time.  Apparently Dennis had keep all of his.

Well done. I enjoyed watching your video.  :clap:
Cheers, Annie

Zach,

Great work and some serious progression, most excellent! I left a longer comment on your YouTube video  :)

You should be really proud of your drawings, it was a excellent idea to make a video clip and show how your skills have advanced over time (it gives us all hope lol) ...

... I agree with the other commenters here, dating your sketchbooks even just one the cover is a great idea  and one I need to do too.

cheers.... Kiwidutch :)

Zach,

Good for you.  It's so important to keep a record of your progress. I especially love your trees.  They are so full - great depth. 

Your concept art is really cool - shows the depth of your creativity!!

Happy to see you developing your own style!

 Keep up the good work.

Zach, it is lovely to see you posting again and I have just had a look at your video which was so very interesting. Your progress has been phenomenal and your drawing of Pluto was magnificent.  Your architectural pieces look very neat too.  Thanks for posting your video for us to view. Wishing you much success in your future endeavours.
