Alright, so lesson 16 was super curvy flags. The exercise was to draw a flag with a couple of bends in it, like so:
I tried to bear in mind what I noticed watching videos of artists. They all draw really really slowly, and very gradually building up the shapes. I tried not to make bold shapes straight away but to go super slow and lightly at first, and then reinforce my lines once I knew where they should go.
The bonus was to draw an impossibly long flag. Challenge accepted. I decided to try a colour version for this. Again I went very slowly, took my time, and very gradually built up the colour. I also tried to colour in the direction of the fabric to make it somewhat more believable. I hope it worked.
This took me almost an hour, but I'm reasonably pleased with the final result
