I only took Drawing 1 and drawing 2 in college. ( was part of the requirement for my AS In Design ). Nothing too amazing. Knowing Photoshop and simply knowing how to see how light interacts with an object goes a faar way.
You're not a horrible drawer! Far from it! Yes, you could be better, but then, every artist could be better, so i don't think you should worry, just keep on practising
And if i may, what did you study in drawing 1 and 2? ...i never formally took a drawing class, so i don't know, what students learn there. I would like to take some classes btw, so i'm pretty curious : )))
Thanks for the recommendation and the info! I appreciate it! I also did some digging, i found that a lot of people say that the New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is very good for beginners. Have you heard about it?
In the version for light background, did you try making the E shapes 1pt smaller from each side and then make the stroke outer? Generally its the same as putting it inside, but I found out you achieve different look, often much sharper edge creates outer stroke. Sometimes its also even better to replace stroke with the shape and snap it to pixels.
Great work by the way. I love the color combination, and the brand looks very modern and impactful. Definetly recognizable anywhere you might see it. At the same time I think it would be better to leave the brand in original shape, and leave the rest work for the products it will be put on. Its not that big change when it comes down to those shoes etc., but also it doesnt tell the customer much, since there is no symbol or ide representing those shoes. Hope you can understand what I try to say. Overall there is of course no doubt that its great work.
