#7 “Eye Line, Closure and Axis” has the wrong transcription uploaded. Thought I would mention it on behalf of anyone in the future who’s hearing impaired so it can be fixed.September 23, 2020 at 8:22 am in reply to: Figure Drawing I : Gesture #774274
Hi Mr. Jacobo — that helps a lot! Fabulous! Thank you so much for the attentive ear you always bend toward the community.August 17, 2020 at 9:00 pm in reply to: Figure Drawing I : Gesture #676158
PS: Also anticipating this happening with “6. Figure Drawing I : Construction” since the format of the title is the same, using the colon and the Roman numeral instead of a straight line: “|” like the rest of the course.August 17, 2020 at 8:56 pm in reply to: Figure Drawing I : Gesture #676157
This section is included in the Dynamic Gesture Drawing path immediately after a section titled by almost the exact same name and very similar content. It seems to be filmed in a different style (not NMA) and doesn’t feel like it fits in (redundant) with the rest of the course pathway so far.August 6, 2020 at 1:34 pm in reply to: Rey’s Anatomy: The Arm #660124
Yes it is! Thank you so much.August 5, 2020 at 4:08 pm in reply to: Rey’s Anatomy: The Arm #658552
In Section 10 “The Forearm,” when I click the video I get the message “This video file cannot be played.(Error Code: 224003)” This also occurs in other browsers so I don’t think it’s on my end.
UPDATE: I just saw that the previous post about editing the video was made yesterday — so maybe coincidentally this particular video is down for editing today?

None of the assignment references are the ones that Steve demonstrates after the homework.June 3, 2020 at 4:45 pm in reply to: Personalize Our Progress #566830
“I agree with Jeff with regard to functionality of tracking progress and would like to add my suggestions.
I have also the problem with the course I am studying, that it still shows me I’m on section 3 even though i am on section 10 and have gone through all the videos.
Therefore I tend to each time search in the search box. the ability to select how much you completed the course would solve this.
Another suggestion would be to be able to see all the lessons in the course at a glance and then be able to select the section, like an index of a sort. This would also give a better idea of where I am at and where i am getting to.”
I have the same issue. I’ll have completed a lot more % than is reflected in my continue course page. I have to go back and fumble through trying to remember which exercises or videos I already watched in order to get back to where I was. A check mark, or an option to click “mark as read” (something along those lines) would be lovely to help avoid this. Or maybe some sort of “bookmark” feature where a bookmark icon could be displayed as a subtab of the “learn” dropdown menu would be cool.
I also frequently use the search box to find the course to see where I’m at and continue, which is somewhat cumbersome. I’ll end up keeping a long-term tab open on my computer with just the course overview page, and a separate one to watch the sections.
I have a hard spiral notebook where I take notes on most sections I watch, but it can be a “mouthful” to write down the course, section, instructor, title, and so on.June 3, 2020 at 4:22 pm in reply to: Study Group for Head Structure #566815
Hi Ellis, I just e-mailed you as well! Didn’t give my number ’cause I want to make sure it’s OK first.May 12, 2020 at 10:32 pm in reply to: Alieke’s 100 Day Sketch, Draw and have fun challenge #526411
Looks like you had a fun Day 4! I’ve never tried using leafing before but it intrigues me, seeing it in other works. Is it easy to apply? I quite like the effect especially in contrast to the colors and mood of the tree on the far right.May 11, 2020 at 11:35 pm in reply to: Alieke’s 100 Day Sketch, Draw and have fun challenge #524141
Hi Alieke! I can’t wait to see where your sketch from yesterday goes–I really like the composition, symbolism and balance of “asymmetrical” symmetry.May 7, 2020 at 4:53 pm in reply to: Constructive Head Drawing | Week 8: Creating Contrast #515124
Hi! The transcription for Week 8, Part 2 (“…Creating Contrast”) is the wrong transcription.April 9, 2020 at 7:04 pm in reply to: Paul’s 100 Day Challenge; Sketchbook #459032
Those videos by Steve Huston, along with your goal, resonate with me as well. I’ve been intending to work daily on something small and achievable but I’m such an all-or-nothing person that it’s difficult for me to get in the mindset of small tasks–or even five minutes a day–are a huge success! Sounds like a great goal; I’m looking forward to tagging along!March 28, 2020 at 11:35 am in reply to: Free Student Video Critiques by NMA Instructors #436667
