Enjoyed this fast moving portrait. Would like to see more about shapes

The topic was good, but the explanation and the drawing itself was just too fast to catch up with, how to go through it. Actually, everything was just too fast and could not catch all. The tutorial was fast. The process should be done slowly so that we as learners would be able to see it all and fully understands.
