    This is a good revision. The lines are smooth and still pass through the points. When making any marks remember to ghost in lines and prioritize smoothness in the upcoming lessons/challenges.

    Next Steps:

    Go on to the 250 Box Challenge and remember to use smooth ghosted lines even on other exersises.

    -Wobble in Lines:

    In the Ghosted Lines and Ghosted Planes exercises there are wobbles in the lines.

    -Repeating Lines:

    In the Ghosted Lines and Ghosted Planes exercises there are a few repeating lines.

    -Lines Thoughts:

    I recommend filling the pages more fully. There is empty space outside of the ghosted planes. The images at the end of the exercise pages show helpful examples of how to complete the exercises. To help with wobbly lines I recommend drawing lines fast at the start. Next, I would draw lines slower until I reach a comfortable speed and a smoother line. Ghosting and drawing with the shoulder can also result in a smoother line. To avoid repeating lines you could try pausing between each line or slowing down. You don't have to complete each exercise fully at one time.

    In the Ghosted lines exersise lines are allowed to overlap.


    -Floating Ellipses:

    Some of the ellipses are in the center of other ellipses in the Table of Ellipses exercise.

    -Ellipses Thoughts: In the Tables of Ellipses most ellipses should touch the top and bottom borders. There should be few small ellipses in the smaller spaces.


    Ruler Lines: The front face of the boxes in the rough perspective test should be drawn with a ruler/straight edge. (This is my mistake).

    Wobble in Lines: The Rough perspective has wobbles in the lines.

    Boxes Thoughts: Don’t forget to read the lesson pages carefully. Also plotting points can help with positioning boxes and lines.

    Additional Notes: Rotating the page can also help when drawing lines. If your hand position feels awkward you can draw the line from the other side. Good Luck!

    Next Steps:

    Please, revise one of the the Ghosted Lines exercise.

Staedtler Pigment Liners

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).
