Reddit concept art class, first lesson

I’m participating in the Reddit University Game Concept Art and Drawing class so thought I’d share my homework on my blog each week. The idea behind this lesson was to learn to draw what you see instead of what you think you see. I’ve done exercises in the past with the same concept but usually required you to focus on one part at a time without seeing the whole. The approach the instructor, General_Lee, suggested was to use grid lines to help find the spatial relationship between shapes and I really liked this approach. However, I probably used more grid lines than I should have but it’s a start!
