    Hello again, I wanted to take the opportunity to ask about the textures you are mentioning. I usually default to dots and lines on plants and mushrooms because usually I don't really see "anything". And if I had to see something it would be a porous surface.

    Looking into L4 insects with smooth surface and onwards, how could I face these cases without clear textures?

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I've also noticed that most of my boxes have trouble with the back lines. Box 246 in ther vertical axis (red) is one example, but you can find many. Usually the problem is that the back line converges too early with the front line.

    I read that by not leaving back lines for the end you would alleviate the problem of having weird back lines. The "weird" back lines are better now, but I still can't solve those early convergences, even though I don't do them last.

    In the same way, sometimes an edge line converges too early too, which is the last one I do.

    I hope you could give me some insights on how to solve those problems.

    Thank you very much.

    Best regards,

    Thank you for the feedback!

    I have a question to ask, specially related to the rough perspective exercise. At the start of the course it's implied (or at least that's what I interpreted) that we should commit to the lines and to not try to correct mistakes. In that sense, when I was doing the converging lines of the box, some of them would end up being too short or long compared to the others, leading to the issue of not prioritizing parallel and perpendicular lines enough.

    In that case, should I try to correct the length of the converging line to facilitate making correctly the perpendicular and parallel ones?

    Thanks 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.
Ellipse Master Template

Ellipse Master Template

This recommendation is really just for those of you who've reached lesson 6 and onwards.

I haven't found the actual brand you buy to matter much, so you may want to shop around. This one is a "master" template, which will give you a broad range of ellipse degrees and sizes (this one ranges between 0.25 inches and 1.5 inches), and is a good place to start. You may end up finding that this range limits the kinds of ellipses you draw, forcing you to work within those bounds, but it may still be worth it as full sets of ellipse guides can run you quite a bit more, simply due to the sizes and degrees that need to be covered.

No matter which brand of ellipse guide you decide to pick up, make sure they have little markings for the minor axes.
