    No problem !

    Honestly this was kinda hard getting back into Drawabox after 2 months, I felt a little rusty.

    The cylinder challenge for me was really helpful and a bit scary at first too, my ellipses weren't on point so I did not know how my cylinders would turn.

    • For the first part, constructing cylinders around an axis only allowed my ellipses to gain a lot more confidence and also some precision. I also gained confidence building what looked like "accurate cylinders" to me.

    • The second part was a lot more time consuming and difficult for each cylinder, but it made me realise how innacurate my previous cylinders were in comparison with the one constructed with more precision.

      • Honestly this part was really boring to me but it helped for sure on precision and how an actual cylinder could/should look like.

      • I think this will help my future cylinders built around an axis to look more believable !

    Anyway thanks and good luck with the challenge !

    First of all, thank you for the critique,

    Organic Arrows

    I skipped lineweight because I didn't know I was supposed to lineweight these.


    For this part it is my bad, it is clearly said in the text that you could do a certain amount of plants following demos, but for the remaining work, you should use your own references. I misunderstood the text and did them all. Unfortunately when I saw my mistake it was already too late.

    Again, I'd like to thank you for your time and for the provided critique : this was really helpful to me and will for sure help me move on the next step !

    Hello SuperS0nick,

    Thanks a lot for your critique and for pointing out my mistakes !

    The texture analysis exercise took me a long time to complete, I'll be more careful in the futur and do my best to do a smooth transitions when I'll be tackling the 25 texture challenge

    This was helpful thank you again

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
