    Thanks for your critique.

    Concerning the first tire where I filed in the side planes of the spokes, how should I have done it ? Since it's a completely flat surface, by filling one thick line instead of the whole surface ?

    Thanks again,

    Hi and thanks for all your advices.

    I tried to apply everything you said to these 4 more construction drawings:

    Could you show how you would have done the lion's mane (if it doesn't take too much time) please ?

    Thanks again

    Thanks for your critique.

    One of the link ( does not work, could you send it back please ?

    To be sure I understood, in order show the additional structure, I have to add a new layer that wrap around the previous layer ?

    Thanks again,

    Thanks for your critique. I looked back at the reference ( and it seems unvoidable to do this zigzaging, because the changes appeared all the way of the edges. I'm not sur to be clear. But maybe I should not follow completely the ref ?

    Thanks again

    Hi and thank you for your critiques, I will take them into account for the future. As requested, you will find below a link with 4 pages of plant construction. I still had some difficulty with the texture.

    Thank you,

    Hi and thank you for your critique :)

    Concerning the texture analysis, to be sure I clearly understood, my gradient is no significant enough ?

    With the dissection I need to focus on the cast shadows but in the example like for the hair, we can't do otherwise than following the shape sometimes, same with the bricks ? I feel like we sometimes have to followe the shape and at the same time use the cast shadow ?

    Not sure if I'm clear enough...

    Should I redo this dissection exercise to get my hand on it or the 25 texture challenge will help me improve with that ?

    Thanks again :)

    Hello thank you fro your critique, I will do planes and funnels as warmups then ;). I will continue with the 250 box challenge. I could try again the rotated box exercise after this chanllenge or should I first do lesson 2 and then redo it ?

    Thanks again,

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).
