    No worries bro, I'm glad to help;)

    Yeah by the time you finish boxes challenge your lines and perspective will definitely get better.

    Good luck)

    No worries bro, and don't really worry about ellipses right now, just try to make them

    as smooth and confident as you can and they'll definitely get better.)

    Hi Lucas, overall good job and congrats finishing first lesson :)

    Lines

    Lines are looking p good overall, though you have some long ones that are arching a bit. This can happen because you might not be using your shoulder as your main pivot so check you're doing it. Another thing that can help to fix this is to try to arch consciously to the the opposite side when drawing the lines.

    Ellipses

    Ellipses are a bit wobbly at times. Remember that in ellipses as well as lines you should try to do them as confident as you can, don't hesitate in sacrificing accuracy to get them smoother and more confident.

    Boxes

    Rough perspective good job keeping vertical lines perpendicular and horizontal lines parallel to the horizon.

    Boxes are fine too.

    Your main issue is perspective, which is completely fine, as you'll work on it in 250 boxes challenge.

    Also in rotated boxes the gap should be consistent)

    Good job overall and good luck ;)

    Next Steps:

    Next Steps:

    Continue to use these exercises as part of your warm ups (about 10-15 minutes)
    
    Feel free to move onto the 250 box challenge
    
    Don’t forget to take breaks and draw for fun!
    
    Also, now that you’ve completed Lesson 1, I encourage you to critique some Lesson 1 community submissions. Not only will this help the community, but it will also solidify and reinforce your understanding of the material. Of course, this is optional (but we’d be especially grateful!).

    Hi overall good job and congrats finishing first lesson :)

    Lines

    Lines are looking p good overall, though they do get a bit wobbly especially in boxes.

    Ellipses

    Ellipses are a bit wobbly at times. Remember that in ellipses as well as lines you should try to do them as confident as you can, don't hesitate in sacrificing accuracy to get them smoother and more confident.

    Boxes

    Boxes are fine too, though your main issue in both rotated boxes and organic perspective is perspective, which is completely normal, as you'll work on it in 250 boxes.

    Good luck and keep it up ;)

    Good job on funnels( minor axis cuts ellipses in halves).

    On rotated boxes, you're missing corner boxes. In both rotated boxes and organic perspective, your main issue is perspective, which is completely fine, as you'll work on it in 250 boxes challenge.

    Also in rough perspective horizontal lines should be parallel to the horizon. Keep an eye on that.

    Lines and ellipses are p good in general, they do get a bit wobbly at times, specially your ellipses. So don't forget that in these exercises you should be focusing in confidence even if your accuracy gets worse.

    Boxes are looking pretty good too. The issues you have is that in both the rotated boxes and organic perspective you got mistakes on the perspective of the boxes, which is completely normal, and nothing to worry about as you'll practice it on the box challenge.

    Next Steps:

    First of all, congratulations on finishing lesson 1! Your next step is the box challenge.

    As I marked this as complete, you are now qualified to critique lesson 1 submissions.

    -Doing critiques is a way of learning and solidifying concepts. I can atest to that after having done hundreds of critiques. There are a lot of concepts that I did not understand, and thanks to critiquing I started understanding them. Which made me learn a lot more through the course.

    -Another thing is that as the number of current submissions is super high, if you critique some critiques, those would be less critiques I'd have to critique before reaching your next submissions, so you'd get your critiques faster. The new system ordering submissions also makes that the more agrees your critiques have the higher you'll be placed in the queue of critiques, which will improve your chances of getting critiques faster as well.

    It's totally optional of course, I won't force anyone to give critiques. But me and the other people who are critiquing would be super grateful if you gave it a shot.

    Good luck on the box challenge, and keep up the good work!

Staedtler Pigment Liners

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
