You are right about boxes being converged in pairs. I was focusing on sticking the lines together instead of meeting a single point. Sometimes It worked, sometimes It looked off but I couldn't quite understand what it was. Next time in warmups, I will focus on the single point! I will also try to add line weight.

Thank you so much for the critiquing again, I appreciate it. I will move to lesson 2 after a while.

You did it! You fixed the ghosted Lines and table of ellipses. And yes it will take time to get used to drawing with shoulders. So keep practicing!!

Then try again without the video. Sorry to drag the homework like this, but I think it's important to do it the correct way, which will benefit you in the long run.

Next Steps:

Watch the video, follow it step by step, then do it from imagination.

Alright! Thanks again for taking time to critique my work.

Hello THELOLLYPOP! Thank you for critiquing my homework, Since I was working in digital I completely forgot that I have to split pages in three sections :P. I will throw some extra in the rogue perspective, since I have done enough of them.

I will try experimenting with longer ghosted Lines, and try to put the ellipses inside the tables. I will also try to maintain the ellipses more carefully in each excerice.

Take a look at the missing homework, and tell me if they are solid too, Thanks again for your help, I appreciate it.

Hey YUCKTOGRAM! Good job on finishing lesson 1, Here's my thoughts on your homework :

Superimposed Lines : It seems some of your lines at the end are wobbling as they go to the end of the line. Make sure to draw with your shoulders, not wrist or elbow. Position your pen then slowly ghost through the line multiple times before executing it.

Ghosted Lines : Some of the lines have wobbling, do the same thing that I mentioned in superimposed Lines. Fill your page a little bit more.

Table of Ellipses : Draw through your ellipses only twice! no more than that.

Ghosted Planes With Ellipses : Only a few of the lines are wobbly, otherwise it looks great! The only issue here is, you have drawn through your ellipses more than twice.

Funnels : The first four on the top look wrong, your ellipses have no angles as they move towards the end. It looks as if you have drawn ellipses small to big. But the next four on the bottom looks great! it has angles as they move to the end. Refer to that when you draw it next time!

Plotted Perspective : Looks amazing! Good job on that

Rogue Perspective : Good job on this! looks good

Rotated Boxes : Boxes on the corner are missing, I think you are making your boxes too wide in size. Try to draw a longer line for the boxes, connect it to the squares.

Organic Perspective : Most of your boxes in the second and third table have dramatic foreshortening, It means they have too much angle, Try making your Y no longer than 90 degrees.

Overall, you did great! Mistakes are beginner's job. Take my analysis and see how you can improve from it.

ps : also remember everything I said is just my opinion, you don't have to take it seriously.

Next Steps:

Please revise the ghosted Lines, table of ellipse and rotated boxes.

Hey Lowcapacitymeatball! Good job on finishing lesson 1, Here's my thoughts on your homework :

Superimposed Lines : You understood the lesson correctly!

Ghosted Lines : Only very few of them arcs a little bit, but I think that's fine.

Table of Ellipses : Looks perfect!

Ghosted Planes : I think the lines are arcing a bit on the planes. Consciously arc your line slightly in the opposite direction. The expected result is that this conscious adjustment will compensate for the issue and will result in a straight line that does not arc in either direction.

Ellipses on Planes : Looks good! No mistakes there.

Funnels : First of all, make your funnels longer and your arcs a bit more angled. The first one you draw on the top left side is completely incorrect. Second, some of your ellipses are not being angled at all. I would highly recommend watching the ellipses video again : (https://youtu.be/tHJ3rzk6kno?si=nDHMmD7YhN228lDZ)

Plotted Perspective : Wonderful job on this!

Rogue Perspective : Good job on this one too! Looks amazing. Try drawing your boxes further away from the vanishing point when you are comfortable.

Rotated Boxes : Looks good! You are missing boxes in the top corners. Draw them to complete it.

Organic Perspective : Fantastic job on this one! It seems you understood everything. Everybody understood this correctly expect for me ????

Most of your excerices came out correct! I think you have a lot of potential. Try revising on my analysis, and see what you can fix. Overall good job

Hello Rishi! Good job on finishing lesson 1, Here's my thoughts on your homework :

Superimposed Lines : There's fraying on both sides, only some of them are correct but most have fraying. I want you to position your hand on the start of the line and then ghost through it multiple times, and then position your pen again in the start of the line and execute the mark. Don't worry about correcting it, that's something that you will develop later.

Ghosted Lines : Your lines are too long! See homework reference for example, try making it shorter.

Ghosted Planes : Good job on this one!

Table of Ellipses : I don't think you understand the exercise. You have to ghost through the ellipse then draw it through two full times, no more no less. Your ellipses look chaotic.

Ellipses on Planes : Looks good! Only two of them didn't touch the four of the edges. Also make sure to ghost through the ellipses slowly multiple times.

Funnels : Looks good! Only a few of them didn't have any angle on the ellipses. Also, draw through the ellipses only twice.

Plotted Perspective : It's very difficult to see what you did on this, maybe because of the size and ink. Can you provide a page where you have drawn only two- or three boxes?

Rogue Perspective : Good job on this one! Looks amazing.

Rotated Boxes : I don't think you understood rotation correctly. Check the YouTube channel where Drawabox talks about estimating rotation. (https://youtu.be/2tYzsWE6kJc?si=9upxnuQAUZe5DqrB)

Organic Perspective : Fantastic job on this one! It seems you understood everything. Some of your boxes has deformed boxes, I would suggest reading “Y method” again

Overall, Good job. I think you are on the right path, a bit of fixing here and there and you will be all good!

ps : also remember everything I said is just my opinion, you don't have to take it seriously

Next Steps:

Revise superimposed Lines, table of ellipses, rotated boxes and funnels and give me a clear page of plotted perspective.

Hi Xor! Good job on finishing lesson 1, Here's my thoughts on your homework :

Superimposed Lines : There's fraying on both sides, only some of them are correct but most have fraying. I want you to position your hand on the start of the line and then ghost through it multiple times, and then position your pen again in the start of the line and execute the mark. Don't worry about correcting it, that's something that you will develop later.

Ghosted Lines : It looks correct, but I think you should draw longer lines and fill the page up a little bit. See homework example for reference on the website.

Ghosted Planes : Good job on this one! I think you are focusing on angles too much. Try to draw slightly angled or just normal angles instead of dramatic angles.

Table of Ellipses : I don't think you understand the exercise. You have to ghost through the ellipse then draw it through two full times, no more no less. Some of your ellipses have only been drawn once and others are more than two.

Ellipses on Planes : The problem with the ellipses, draw it through only twice, not more than that!

Funnels : I don't think your ellipses are following any angles at all. It feels as if you have drawn small to big circles on the funnels. Please take the funnel lesson again, watch the video for better understanding.

Plotted Perspective : Good job on this one too! It looks good!

Rotated Boxes : Your boxes are too small in the Z axis. Google X, Y, Z Axis for reference. Try making it wider.

Organic Perspective : Fantastic job on this one! It seems you understood everything. Yours looks better than when I first drew it.

Rogue Perspective : Good job on this one too! Try drawing your boxes far from the vanishing point when you are comfortable.

Overall, It's amazing that you have put this much effort into the lesson. Some are wrong but they are not the end of the world lol. There's always room for growth.

ps : also remember everything I said is just my opinion, you don't have to take it seriously

Next Steps:

Redo your homework with my analysis.

Looks perfect to me.

For the Superimposed Lines, Make sure to ghost through the line slowly multiple times, then execute. I used to rush it and it was messy and didn't follow the line at all.

And for ellipses on planes, Only draw the ellipses twice, don't make a chaos.

And for funnels, your last ellipses on the ruler look like a circle, I think the angle is too much from the last one, reduce that a bit.

Next Steps:

Now that you have completed lesson 1, move to 250 box challenge, don't grind or overdo it, It will cause burnout

### The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
