Thank you for critiquing my lesson!
Yeah the first hundred were wrong. I somehow read the lesson wrong for quite a long time and I eventually read it right. As soon as I realized that I did a hundred cylinders wrong I felt quite stupid but sometimes people do stupid stuff. So I just have a quick laugh about it.
One thing I say is that I should read over some lessons again to keep things fresh. I have to learn a lot of stuff currently and because of that I tend to forget things or loose track of things. Thats no excuse to revisit not the older lessons but just an explanation why the first hundred came out the way they did.
My line work does need some work and I'm really trying to work hard on it. I get quite impatient and nervous and I think that especially the ellipses suffer from that. I'm still trying to find an answer to why I get so impatient and nervous when drawing. I still do ellipses as warmups and somehow they don't come out as chaotic and shaky.
Some where after the hundredth cylinder I came across some of the drawing databases videos and they gave me an certain understanding of forms and how to look at them that I didn't even think about before.
I looked at my boxes again and it surprised my that a lot of the look quite similar. I didn't notice that and I don't know why that is but thank you for telling me that I seem to memorize the boxes I make. I think I wouldn't have even noticed that.
For the extended lines I don't really have something to say other than. I don't take enough time to analyze my mistakes. Again drawing for the course makes my impatient and nervous somehow and because of that I will do the course again some time later after doing every lesson and challenge.
Here I want to break things down into the core points.
-going over older material would be good to keep my memory fresh. -my line work is mostly good but sometimes there is some form of wavering in it. -boxes seem memorized instead of subconscious understanding of 3D space. - being more mind full about convergences and to extend them fully.
