Start else where. Organisms are much more difficult than furniture. You wouldn’t dive into drawing people, you start drawing basic shapes.

Yeah, organic modeling is pretty advanced, you should be able to plane model efficently when doing organics. Start slow, but keep that as your main goal. That might keep you doing it.

alright thanks for the help guys i’ll try sommin else first :L suppose it was a big task :smiley:
