Hello Devvy! let's get right into your 250 boxes exercise~

So i noticed that your boxes are inconsistently converging into the vp's like you improved some, but overtime your boxes are converging into the infinity again like there are little convergence to your boxes, but from what i see is that your lineworks is pretty confident and smooth so good job on that! but i feel like you still don't understand where the lines needs to be converging so for that i recommend you to check this video again for understanding https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mteUPdCHn4s where you can see that each lines are converging into 1 vps instead of going infinity, but all in all congratulations on finishing this exercise! try to ask more on discord group so you can get a better understanding on the subject that you got stuck.

What i meant about the organic perspective is that some of your boxes are very long, and again, i think it's fine cause your organic perspective exercise looks very convincing and good :)

Hi Chironex! let's just get into your exercise.

For starters, congratulations on finishing this exercise! it's really a long and tedious exercise, but i can see the improvements on your convergence lines, but i do have some critique on your works

1. Your hatching lines is really random, by that i mean you've done most of the boxes with hatching lines, then the 215 - 230rd boxes you didn't hatch your boxes

2. Your lines are somewhat still wobbly, i recommend to do ghosted lines, sil, and the ghosted planes exercise everyday

Other than that, congratulations again for finishing this exercise! feel free to move on to lessons 2 if you wanted to

Hi Hall! let's just get right into all of your exercise

1. Lines for most the part all of your lines are great! even though i noticed that some of your lines are wobbly in your SIL exercise and it's okay cause you've done a great job on all of your lines exercise!

2. Ellipses good job on all of your ellipses exercise too! it is really difficult to draw ellipses ( but don't worry, just remember that this is all just an exercise or a fundamentals, not a final artwork :D )

3. Boxes i don't have any comments on your plotted perspective and rotating boxes exercise other than a great job! as for your plotted perspective, again you've done a great job on it! it is hard though because you are drawing it without a ruler, but atleast you understand the concept of doing rough 1 point perspective, and as for your organic perspective, i see that some of your boxes are elongated, they're supposed to be on the same size. Nonetheless congratulations on finishing Lessons 1 :D

Next Steps:

i request thou to do the 250 boxes exercise

Hi Salty_Is_Salty! Let's just get to your exercise :

1. Lines : Overall, great job on all of your lines exercise! however, i see that some of your lines is still wobbly ( but it's okay because for the most part everything looks great! ) and as for the SIL exercise, you did a good job on it too!

2. Ellipses : Again, great job on your ellipses exercise! however, i see that you draw over your ellipses for more over 3 times, just remember that when you drawing your ellipses again, the base maximum is 2 - 3 times :)

3. Boxes : Overall, great job on finishing all of the boxes exercise! it can be difficult and tedious at first, but when you do the 250 boxes challenge hopefully you became much more accustomed with drawing them boxes :)

Next Steps:

Go forth, do the 250 boxes challenge

### Rapid Viz

Rapid Viz is a book after mine own heart, and exists very much in the same spirit of the concepts that inspired Drawabox. It's all about getting your ideas down on the page, doing so quickly and clearly, so as to communicate them to others. These skills are not only critical in design, but also in the myriad of technical and STEM fields that can really benefit from having someone who can facilitate getting one person's idea across to another.

Where Drawabox focuses on developing underlying spatial thinking skills to help facilitate that kind of communication, Rapid Viz's quick and dirty approach can help students loosen up and really move past the irrelevant matters of being "perfect" or "correct", and focus instead on getting your ideas from your brain, onto the page, and into someone else's brain as efficiently as possible.
