    Cylinders in boxes, redone:

    Originally the entire challenge was done in 4-days, because of the excitement of moving on to lesson 6.

    And here is where it led me.

    As for the redone section. The cylinders inboxes are done from the shoulder this time. With some experimentation, I was able to fix the accuracy and the overshooting/undershooting on most marks by touching the page with my ring and pinky finger while executing the lines from the shoulder to prevent my entire arm from trembling while it's hovering over the page. However, as a price to keep them smooth and accurate, I need to apply a little bit more pressure to my fineliner than usual. Some of the lines still arc a bit. You might not notice them because they overlap with the marks for error checking done with a pencil.

    (I have a funny feeling that I won't repeat this mistake when you move me on to lesson 6.)

    I posted lesson 1 on October 5th. It was 15 days ago. Also, I made a new post for the 250 box challenge like you said. I guess I'm waiting for critique now.

    Can I continue to lesson 2?

    The 250 Box Challenge is done. I Uploaded the images on a different website this time because Imgur didn't work.

    Hi again, I just began with the 250 box challenge, and I have a question. Is there a problem if the lines are crossing each other? In the picture, one of the boxes in the top right corner is left unfinished on purpose to see how it looks.

    I did the rough perspective on paper, as you said. I only have one question. Do I have to do the 250 box challenge again? If yes, does it have to be on paper?

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.
