Man, thank you very much for this. Every detail you linked helped me understand the critique. I think this is the first time i rushed a lesson so I'll take my time and I will consider each advice you gave me for the next one. Thank you!

Hi, XTRAZ. Congrats on completing the 250 box challenge. Here's my critique:

• The inner corner is sometimes off making the lines not always converge to a single point but its a common mistake and if you carefully plan each line and where they converge you'll see this problem disappear in the future.

• I recommend using more line weight in lines so the box feels more present and doesn't get drowned by the colored ones.

• Remember to always take your time when ghosting and the executing the lines with confidence. Each line is a unit of work so you should plan and take your time with every single one so you don't rush them and they dont end up with wobble.

• Try do add more variation with the vanishing point like making it be closer to the box you are drawing to see different type of boxes. Still, most of them vary in size and shape so good job!!

I've marked this as complete. Good luck on lesson 2!

Hi, BRAM. Congrats on completing the 250 box challenge. Here's my critique:

• The main issue I see here is that you did not mark or see corrected the third dimension of the box which is crucial!! Please go back on this and see if most of them line up. One of the main characteristics of boxes are the 3 dimensions they sit in and this is why this challenge is so important for developing your sense of space.

• Also, try to vary the type of boxes you do, change their size, shape and where their vanishing are placed. I see that most of them have their vanishing point very very far away and the boxes are pretty symmetrical. Try do vary that next time you do boxes! Still, this issue mostly appears at the end of the challenge.

• Finally, I would recommend using more line weight in lines so the boxes feel more present and don't get drowned by the colored lines.

I've marked this as complete and good luck on Lesson 2!

Hi RGBLACK, congrats on completing lesson 1. Here's my critique

LINES

Despite some lines being sometimes wobbly or missing the mark most of them are good and were done with confidence. Seems you have more problems with long distance but overall they are well done. Remember to always take your time ghosting and then executing your mark.

ELLIPSES

The main issue is that you started rushing your ellipses, I recommend that you take your time!! You should always plan with ghosting so you can make better ellipses cause i see that some don't have the right shape or differ a lot from each attempt you do in a single ellipse. Also, remember to do only 2 or 3 attempts at each ellipse.

BOXES

Great work on the boxes! Make sure to take your time when ghosting each line and then executing them confidently, just like the ellipses. Each line is a unit of work you should put your 100% into. Also, NEVER do the same line twice unless the instructions tell you to do so! If you make a mistake while placing a mark, you have to leave it there! Don't try to correct it and move one with what you have learned from that small mistake.

Hello ATIUMMISTING, congrats on doing the 250 box challenge! Here's my critique:

LINES

The lines are pretty good, you managed to hit most marks with a bit of wobble. My only critique here would be to never regret the line you are doing once you are executing, cause I saw some wobble in the middle of some lines. Still, this issue disappears with enough practice so don't worry.

ELLIPSES

The ellipses are really well made. I would only say that you should plan with ghosting just a bit more so you can make better ellipses cause i see that some don't have the right shape or differ a lot from each attempt you do in a single ellipse.

BOXES

At the beginning the confidence in your lines disappeared when making the boxes but then you regained it by the end. Remember to do hatching for the side that is closest to the viewer. Any perspective issues that are present will probably get fixed once you do the 250 Box Challenge.

Hi, DISTANTEGGSONG. Congrats on completing lesson 1! here's my critique:

LINES

Lines are really well made, although some have wobble or miss the mark by just a bit most of them are great. Perhaps long distance and curves are harder but with enough practice in future exercises that issue can be solved. Remember to take time when ghosting and then executing the line swiftly and with confidence.

ELLIPSES

I see that ellipses caused problems. My only critique here would be to do less attempts at each ellipse, either 2 or 3 attempts. Don't worry of some end up looking horrible, the time for showing your mistakes are now! Remember to take your time when ghosting and executing the ellipses to place them correctly. Also, I see you had some issues with your pen as it seems it was running out of ink. I recommend you to move to the next pen as it kinda ruins the learning experience to keep using a pen that doesn't work well.

BOXES

The boxes were great! Any problems you've had in perspective will probably get fixed when doing the 250 Box Challenge. I would of course recommend doing hatches in the last exercise but apart from that the boxes are really good.

I've marked this as complete, any doubts be sure to comment below!

### How to Draw by Scott Robertson

When it comes to technical drawing, there's no one better than Scott Robertson. I regularly use this book as a reference when eyeballing my perspective just won't cut it anymore. Need to figure out exactly how to rotate an object in 3D space? How to project a shape in perspective? Look no further.
