    There's an article as to why the lessons should be done with traditional ink

    https://drawabox.com/article/ink

    Doesn't mean you can't do these exercises digitally, but to get critique do it with ink, like others have said

    I can see some wobbling with your lines. I can see you make an arch with longer lines, too.

    It seem to me you have a problem with making the elippses touch their boundaries, particularly in the tables exercise. With smaller ellipses I see some wobbling and deformation, too.

    In the planes exercise, I can see they touch the borders mostly well, but they sometimes deform.

    With your rough perspective - I see you draw the sides that are supposed to converge parallel, or make them not converge enough.

    In the rotated boxes exercise, this box could follow the other one's side more - https://i.imgur.com/0svkIB1.png. I believe the uppermost and lowermost boxes shouldn't have this side seen https://i.imgur.com/68Vx7Vy.png. I think it should look something like this: https://i.imgur.com/xBIiG36.png, such a box was also in this exercise's example.

    As for the organic perspective, be careful with diverging lines (by making the silhouette with diverging lines, you're essentially drawing the inside of a box and not its outside: https://i.imgur.com/VXi6qA2.png) and tangents (https://i.imgur.com/xCQZ0U4.png).

    Next Steps:

    Either way, I think you can move onto the 250 boxes challenge, as you'll work on your lines and sense of convergence there and the mistakes you've made aren't from misunderstanding the exercises.

    Your ghosted lines arch a bit, but I can see it got better with the planes exercise.

    The ellipses I'd say are pretty confident. They sometimes slightly don't touch the plane. I see you draw through those ellipses in planes more than 3 times, making this "thick line" effect - I recommend going over 2-3 times so their outline is clearer (less thick).

    In the rotated boxes exercise I think the rotation is sometimes unclear (https://imgur.com/5hRf03g). At times the corners weren't close to each other (https://imgur.com/a/fhD4eYY). Also this one's convergence isn't right: https://imgur.com/a/81iyiIc .

    In the rotated boxes exercise I noticed the lines got wobblier (could be because of being cautious). Watch out for tangents, as they can flatten the image: https://imgur.com/a/cwtC3Z1 and applying dramatic foreshortening in far away things: https://imgur.com/a/n8bUffx .

    And that's all I had to say here for now.

    Next Steps:

    You've done quite well here, so I think you can move onto the 250 boxes challenge - remember not to be wobbly with boxes.

    So, I can see your lines arch a bit and they sometimes make a wave. The longer the line, the more noticeable it is. I recommend trying to find a good pacing to how you draw lines - e.g. try drawing slow and fast and notice what's more comfortable and smoother. When you make curves (in the superimposed exercise), I can also see a bit of wobbling in there, so keep that in mind in lesson 2 (you can also draw straights first/plan straight lines with dots and draw curves over them).

    Sometimes your ellipses don't quite touch the bottom or top (sometimes both) of the plane. Pay attention to how you ghost them, because usually one draws like he ghosted - you could have, for example, ghosted a bit under the plane and therefore drawn the ellipse under it. I see a tendency where you draw slanted ellipses in square-ish planes (the ellipses should be more circle-like) - the ellipse's axis doesn't match with the plane's. If you're unsure as to what should the ellipse look like, you can do something like this: https://imgur.com/a/JbLFzVl .

    Your ellipses at times don't touch and overlap the tables they're in (https://imgur.com/a/G5ISi4L). Other than that, they touch each other quite well.

    Remember to draw some of the lines - https://imgur.com/a/esOOJVn .

    I can see you made some tangents in the organic perspective exercise, watch out for them as they can flatten the image. Next time remember to be careful with the foreshortening, this box looks like it's in front: https://imgur.com/a/jNcWgxd .

    Don't have much to say about the rotated boxes - sometimes the lines are or close to parallel when they shouldn't be (https://imgur.com/a/HytLnWm).

    And that's all I had to say for now.

    Next Steps:

    I think you can move onto the box challenge. There you'll practice straights and, of course, boxes.

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

There are a lot of options for illustration software out there, but mine has always been Adobe Photoshop. I've been using it for nearly 20 years now, ever since I started fooling around with digital art, and it has served me well into my career, both in freelancing and in studio positions. One of the biggest advantages, in my opinion, for those jumping into digital art with Photoshop now is its accessibility. Where when I was younger, it'd cost hundreds, even over a thousand dollars for a software license, younger students can now get their feet wet with industry standard software for just $10/month with their Photography Plan.
