    The organic forms don't wrap around enough making them feel like just lines running across the form. The texture is very well done, I don't really know how to critique it because I haven't grasped it as well as you did there. I would say you're main priority is more confident lines because all the exercises have some wobbly line work. I would suggest doing the 1 page of the organic forms using more curved lines and 1 page of the form intersections. Try and really focus on the line work even if the lines are over or undershot.

    Next Steps:

    1 page of organic forms with lines

    1 page of form intersections

    When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.
    12:16 AM, Monday October 11th 2021 Thanks for the critique! I did two pages because I realized the first redo was basically what you told me NOT to do. I made the second one bigger and tried to clean up the line work a bit more that time. Feel free to make me redo it if I'm still quite not getting it.

    I did put the 250 box challenge up for critique, but I never got a critique and I didn't have a credit to submit it at the time. I guess I missed the part where that was mandatory (I got a bad habit of skimming through the reading sometimes.) I'll hold off on the lessons because even I felt like I was going through them too fast and absorbing too much at the same time. I think I responded better this time with the concepts I was lacking. If not don't hold back. Thank you for pointing out my other lessons, it reminded me that I still have to practice the techniques from the previous lessons to do better on the next lesson.

    Your lines are pretty clean throughout the whole challenge so props to that, but I think your main problem is heavy distortion/ foreshortening on some of the boxes. Try and be more careful and makes sure you want your parallel lines to converge off the page.

    Glad I could help.

    Yeah, I had the same problem with adding line weight to my boxes, many many offshoots.

    you got kind of sloppy with the line work at the end, but the vanishing points got more consistent at the end also. I think your downward parallel lines were your biggest problem although they did get much better at the end.

    Still having problems with ellipses, but I tried to be more confident.

    the organic perspective has some plotted points, just not in the first large ones.

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
