    We cannot give feedback to those photos. You have to take pictures of the pages one by one. ?t's hard to see things in detail. Also great job for completing lesson 2. Congratulations!

    Perspective is a highly detailed subject and waiting for your perspective skills to complete before moving on to the figure is not right thing to do in my opinion. What will you do? Leave your pers. studies for a month after reach some level. You can focus only on 3d structor and perspective for a couple of weeks though.

    However yes after studing pers., I felt much more comfortable in figure. Lastly, I think you can kinda feel when you need to revisit some of the lessons. Let me suggest you some learning resources related to pers. I'm sorry I only know popular resources. ^^''

    • Marshall Vandruff perspective course: Pretty detailed yet still easy to understand teaches the logic behind how things work really well.

    • Love Life Drawing 10 days fresh eye challenge

    • Proko robo bean and mannequinization exercises

    • If you have some budget new master academy's perspective course

    Well after spending like 6 hours on my drawabox challenge i was sitting there thinking like why did i do that? Then you said you like it so yeah i wanted to help you out with the questions thank you for encouraging.

    so the center line is basically a long axis which goes through all the 2d planes.

    https://imgur.com/a/e7DmrEn

    here i tried to explain it.

     with the sphere i tried to explain the minor axis of each ellipse they are called 
    • coronal blue

    • transverse green

    • sagittal pink

    you can search up as the anatomical plane diagrams.

    imagine like if you were chopping the sphere front to back you would follow the blue axis so every ellipse's minor axis will be the same with the blue axis

    lastly as you can see blue axis is passing through from the intersection of the pink and green ellipses and its the same for the other 2 ellipses es well. 
    
    I hope it helps let me know if you have any questions!

     You actually have only few things to work on but you made pretty much the same things in each exercise so dont get this critique only for the specific tasks but an overall advice. 
    1. Starting off in the arrow section your arrows dont look like they have consitent width. These arrows has only one thickness. So it supposed to go thin to thick consistently.

      • I guess you want to get the most out of each page so you drew lots of arrows which is a great thing. However in this exercise i would draw only 3-5 arrrow and experiment with the space such as fore-shortening or size change. The distance between each curve is important as well.

      • Good job on considering the angle of the arrow tips.

    2. Your marks can get improved.

      • Always use the gosting method

      • make sure you practise your line quality everyday for 30 mins if posible.Because your lines are wobly and you need some experience to improve. Your instrument should feel like an extention of your body. Cool analogy right XD It makes me motivated

      • use line weight to show what is in front of what

      1. Lets move on to the organic form w/ contour

        • First of all you dont need that much of contour lines for short CL

        • you used the same C set for each for in ellipse page which show that all the forms are in the same position which is not something we want. Varity is important in those exercises

        • One of the C job is to refine the form. Since those forms are not flat and actually pretty bold, I would use rounder ellipses. of course if it is convinient to the perspective.

        • You tent to flatten the object.

        • you almost never change the C degree . Think of how the form is oriented in space is it faceing you or the opposite.

        • You can draw the C by comparing it to its neighboors.

    3. dissection sorry i dont know much about it

    • dont outline the texture only the cast shadow

    • if you have digital tools i highly reccomend you to break down the image first,such as whats the shape, how is the flow in it. dont forget all the textures have some kind of rythm in it.

    • dont pass the silluate. It is one of the strongest tool. take it to your advantage.

    5.form intersection. sorry IDK much about it either

    • use line weight because your shapes look like they are gonna fall apart or they are only wires instead of an actual 3d form with volume.

    6.organic intersection. shadows must follow the light source. Good placement can be upper right or left.

     I was just trying to get a new avatar then I lost control.  (•?•)?  can  you like my critique please I want a new avatar so much.  Love you good luck with your art journey.

    idk maybe using guache or acrilics may help to fill the large areas since they dry fast and matte. u can also use felt tip pen or whiteboard marker as well. I use whiteboard marker and it works.Also i think when you buy pen, get two or more because using dried empty pen is soouuu annoying i hope it helps XP

    • You re drawing your boxes around the same size and the edges are generally at the same angle so you re underestimating. Thats why you re boxes doesnt vary much, they look alike and you re missing the chance to make you re scenes interesting and sometimes boxes doesnt fit the scene accurately.
    1. My suggestion is go crazy. Draw extremely big or small. Tilt you re angles more and more hopefully they will balance themselves.

    2. Take notes on each page as you re criticizesing yourself write what you specificly wrong and how to fix it which helped me improve a lot more faster.

    • I think drawing boxes from referance for a while will help you to learn what an actual box in perspective looks like .

    • https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/cubo-transparente-d96a5dd9667447dbba90e3180774753b* https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/cubo-transparente-d96a5dd9667447dbba90e3180774753b draw this from various angles but dont loose too much time making it exactly the same. Just like in 250 box challenge use ruler and see how you re edges converge you can check the challenge if you dont know how to check you re boxes. What I mean is instead of checking if it looks like the referance , check if it is correct thats what will improve you.

    • U learn more even from the teacher as you write down you re own critique and discover new ways to draw as you draw more and more JUST DONT BE DISCOURAGED. KEEP GOING THE WHOLE COMMUNITY IS PRACTISING WITH YOU TO BE ABLE TO DRAW HOW WE ALL DESIRED TO DRAW HOWEVER WE WANT COMFORTABLY.

    • Draw through your ellipses 2 times. Its not gonna ruin your drawing, oppositely its refining your drawing helping you to get muscle memory.

    • You did the organic and rough perspective exercises wrong. You are supposed to devide your page to 3 panels. You re missing the chance to draw more.

    • You re drawing your boxes around the same size and the edges are generally at the same angle so you re underestimating. Thats why you re boxes doesnt vary much, they look alike and you re missing the chance to make you re scenes interesting and sometimes boxes doesnt fit the scene accurately.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

On the flipside, they tend to be on the cheaper side of things, so if you're just getting started (beginners tend to have poor pressure control), you're probably going to destroy a few pens - going cheaper in that case is not a bad idea.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
