Man....wow...really nice work... i really see the struggles in some pieces. The value master studies are really good, if 30min is correct, you are pretty fast man! The color keys are extremely nice, and some of your original stuff looks really good. I guess those tight line drawings were quite a pita...how long did it take you to do the landing pad thingie? How much is this course? Does it include feedback? Anyhow, very nice work, sometimes it alrdy has a professional touch

Yeah it was part of the training in the CGMA course so I got a bit faster at it, still need to improve though.

Thanks perk, the value studies are a great exercise, I was bad at it at first but I'm getting better. The course is $699 for 8 weeks, each week includes a 1hr prerecorded lecture, recorded video feedback on your weekly assignment (mine was about 10 mins feedback per week) and a 1hr live Q&A session with the instructor.

If by the landing pad you mean the visual development sheet, the callout drawing of the deck probably took me two or three hours. The whole sheet was a week's work, I didn't time it exactly haha.
