Hey. My name is Vitor Adley and today I'm going to criticize your lesson 1, highlighting problems and pointing out possible solutions. I'm going to assume that you follow the 50% rule (if not, start implementing it immediately).

Lines: when drawing a line, don't try to draw it again with the intention of correcting it if you make a mistake (it's something I saw in some of your exercises). No matter how bad the line is, don't try to fix it, just carry on as if nothing happened.

Ellipses: not bad, they have some irregularities but these will be easily corrected with practice. In the funnel exercise, I noticed that you got the alignment of some ellipses wrong, but with the intention of getting it right, then it's not a problem.

Boxes: it is in this section that what I said in the lines section becomes more evident. I noticed that in the rotated boxes exercise, some boxes had the same vanishing point, with no rotation (you could change the inclination of the box lines to have different rotations).

I will mark your lesson as complete, just pay attention to my criticisms to reduce mistakes next time. You can use some of these exercises as a warm-up before drawing.

Next Steps:

Your next step is the 250 Boxes Challenge. Good luck:)

Hey KANGAROO. I honestly didn't see any major problems in your lesson 1, I just want to give you some tips in case you do some exercises again.

In rotated boxes, you could position the 4 corner squares at the same distance from each other, so the shape of the boxes would be more circular. In the organic perspective you could add line weight in overlapping regions.

You did well. You can continue to the next lessons, but it is extremely necessary that you do the 250 boxes challenge first.

Don't forget to do some exercises from this lesson as a warm-up before drawing.

Next Steps:

Your next step is the 250 Boxes Challenge. Good luck:)

Eldast, don't worry, I'm here to give you my feedback on your lesson 1.

Lines: I believe you made good lines. Although some have deviations, they are smooth.

Ellipses: I noticed that you often exceeded the limit of drawing them 3 times, plus some of them were deformed. You can try to pay more attention when ghosting to try to smooth them out and not exceed the limits I mentioned.

Cashiers: YOU DID VERY WELL. IT IS SERIOUS. The rotated boxes exercise is very good. It would have been nice if you had used line weight in the organic perspective. I didn't need to correct the boxes in rough perspective.

In general, you did well, you just need to pay attention to what I said about ellipses. I recommend that you do some of these exercises as a warm-up for future drawings.

Next Steps:

Your next step is the 250 Boxes Challenge. Good luck:)

Good morning, good afternoon and good night. Today I will criticize your lesson 1.

Lines: Large lines are curved (which is not uncommon).

ellipses: the first ones are not so good, but I noticed that you improved over time.

boxes: you did a good job. Just a tip: you could have done more overlaps in the organic boxes exercise to use more line thickness.

Good job. It seems like you understood the concepts well. Do some of these exercises as a warm-up for future drawings.

Next Steps:

Your next step is the 250 Boxes Challenge. Good luck:)

Hi, I'm going to review your lesson 1

Lines: No major problems, they are smooth and beautiful.

Ellipses: you made good ellipses in general, but some in the tables exercise are pointy and in the funnels exercise their minor axis was a little misaligned with the center line. So be careful.

Boxes: in the rotated boxes exercise, the boxes on the left and right have the same vanishing point, meaning there is no rotation. What I'm going to say is not a mistake, but something you didn't do, which is using line weight.

You did well, I believe you understood the concepts and are ready to continue. Do some of these exercises as a warm-up before drawing

Next Steps:

Your next step is the 250 Boxes Challenge. Good luck:)

Superimposed lines: your lines are arched and have fraying on both sides, so you should pay more attention to the beginning of the line and try to curve it in the opposite direction.

Ghosted lines: your lines have a small curvature, but it is smaller than before.

Table of ellipse, Ellipses in planes and Funnels: You did well, only some ellipses were a little deformed.

Plotted perspective: OK. These errors are normal.

Rough perspective: you forgot to extend the lines of one of the boxes.

Rotated boxes: This is great.

Organic perspective: you used line weight in only one of the frames and could have used it in the others. You will improve your boxes over time.

Overall it did well. Don't forget to use these exercises as a warm-up before drawing and reviewing the points I criticized.

Next Steps:

Your next step is the famous 250 BOX CHALLENGE. Good luck :)

Hi MACLENNAN, I'm going to criticize your lesson 1. I'm just going to point out the big problems I found, that is, I'm not going to talk about the exercises that are good.

Tables of ellipses, ellipses in planes and funnels: your ellipses are wobbly. It could be because you do ellipses a little slowly, so increase the speed.

Rough perspective: one of the boxes is extremely crooked.

Organic perspective: you could have done more overlaps and used line weight.

Despite the criticisms, you did lesson 1 very well. I recommend that you do these exercises as a warm-up before drawing.

I marked your lesson as complete.

Next Steps:

Your next step is the famous 250 BOX CHALLENGE. Good luck :)

Olha só, mais um brasileiro por aqui. Bom, eu vou avaliar a sua lição 1 em inglês e depois vou mandar em português, beleza?

English:

Superimposed lines: not bad, but their lines deviate from their trajectory (it's as if they make curves to return to where they should stop).

Ghosted lines and ghosted planes: I notice that the lines are arched. If you still have this problem, make sure you are drawing with your shoulder and try curving in the opposite direction.

Table of ellipses: good ellipses, but some have a strange shape.

Ellipses in planes: your ellipses are a little better, but there is still deformation.

Funnels: the minor axes are slightly misaligned in some funnels, this happened because you may have got the angle of the center line wrong. Keep practicing ellipses!

Rough perspective: this exercise is really difficult. The first page isn't that good, but the second is better. I see that you extended the lines correctly.

Rotated boxes: WOW! It's great.

Organic perspective: I see that you understand how to use line weight.

I liked what I saw. I think you have a lot of potential to continue improving. Regarding how many pages to draw per day, do it in a way that you feel comfortable with, but stay consistent and apply the 50% rule.

I will mark your lesson as complete.

Portuguese:

Superimposed lines: nada mal, mas suas linhas desviam da tragetória delas (é como se elas fizessem curvas para voltar onde deveriam parar).

Ghosted lines and ghosted planes: percebo que as linhas estão arqueadas. Se você ainda tiver esse problema, certifique-se que está desenhando com o ombro e tente curvar para a direção oposta.

Table of ellipses: boas elipses, mas algumas têm um formato estranho.

Ellipses in planes: suas elipses estão um pouco melhores, mas ainda tem deformação.

Funnels: os eixos menores estão levemente desalinhados em alguns funis, isso aconteceu porque vc pode ter errado o ângulo da linha central. Continue praticando elipses!

Rough perspective: este exercício é bem difícil mesmo. A primeira página não tá tão boa, mas a segunda tá melhor. Vejo que vc estendeu as linhas corretamente.

Rotated boxes: UAU! Tá Ótimo.

Organic perspective: vejo que vc entendeu o jeito de usar o peso da linha.

Gostei do que vi. Acho que vc tem muito potencial pra continuar melhorando. Escolha exercícios dessa lição e faça-os como aquecimento antes de desenhar. Sobre quantas páginas desenhar por dia, faça de um jeito que vc se sinta confortável, mas mantenha uma constância e aplique a regra dos 50%.

Vou marcar sua lição como concluída.

Next Steps:

Your next step is the famous 250 BOX CHALLENGE. Good luck :) (faça o desafio das 250 caixas)

### Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
