Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I had something come up.
I only found out about this part of Gaia yesterday, slow, I know, but I hope it's not too late to join this thread? If you'll accept me: this is my prelim.
First things first:
No shading. Do another without it and post that before moving on. (You can start with the videos as soon as you post. You don't have to wait for me to reply.
Your lines are fairly well controlled and you have a sense of 2D spacing, which is great, because that means you can get right down to working on your concepts without drilling on your hand eye coordination.
I found the way you handled the cube very interesting. You turned the world over to solve the puzzle. I also noticed you added something extra. The ability to think outside of the box is a wonderful strength, but it can also be the shovel you use to dig your own grave. Take care that you don't undermine the scope of the work or ignore directions as you work.
If makes you strong in that you can sift through the situation and build a creative way to solve it. That's what I think happened with the cube. Make sure the world remains consistent. If the cube is "sitting on the paper", then everything must do the same thing. If not, then you end up with the cube "standing on a corner", because the world is set by the other things on the page.
We're going to work on seeing and understanding how things exist in space so you can show this existence in line. This is part of giving yourself the power to draw what you want in your own style, no matter what that is, with confidence and skill. (Doesn't happen overnight, of course.)
I can tell that working with you will be interesting and I look forward to it.
