Strada Challenge: Octopus
Complex pieces deserve even stronger organization, which is why in this challenge, Bryan stresses executing your design work before you even touch the canvas. Today is a fantastic lesson in types of curvature; tighter, thicker, and even zig-zagging curves come into play here as you capture the sights, smells, and textures that come with this majestic sea creature.
