    Arrows follow the principles of the exercise, but using line weight could make the overlaps a little clearer. The Dissection continuity is broken in the couple places making just floating faces or cylinders. Textures are done well, though, with the silhouette being broken to great effect. On the Intersection exercise the shapes are drawn large and clearly, but the intersection lines are almost non existent. When thinking of these intersection lines remember that they can only be drawn where both shapes exist, with the intersecting lines following the body of the shape in front. The Organic Intersections should be in one pile not several smaller ones on the page, but this is the only issue since the cast shadows look good and they all follow a general layout.

    Next Steps:

    Overall the exercises are done fairly well, but it is important to stick to the instructions in the exercises. I think this work qualifies you to move on to the next lesson, have fun with plants.

    Thank you for the critique, and you are right about having trouble letting go with the lines. I'll ghost them fast, but end up slowing down to hit the mark or just stopping abruptly short of the dot, which is kinda jarring.

    Super Imposed Lines: Some lines have a bit of wobbling, showing hesitation or lack of confidence. Several bundles have fraying at both end, don't be afraid to take a little extra time to properly line up your first point.

    Ghosted Lines: A lot of the lines that stop at both points have a bit of wobble, its less important that the lines hit their mark and more that their straight, accuracy will come with time and practice.

    Ghosted Planes: A few wobbly lines, but otherwise good effort.

    Table of Ellipses: Not much to say, good representation of lesson material, just keep practicing with a set goal.

    Ellipses in Planes: Some of the ellipses fail to touch all sides of the plains, but a clear attempt is made. 6 of the planes have no ellipses in them at all, its important to complete the whole page for practice.

    Funnels: The ellipses in many of the funnel are not aligned by their minor axis.

    Plotted Perspective: I see 1 grid line that is drawn with a noticeable gap in it, but otherwise good.

    Rough Perspective: Some lines have a bit of wobble to them.

    Rotated Boxes: The gap between boxes starts very consistent near the center,but becomes wider and more irregular toward the edges.This is, however, a very challenging exercise and an overall good attempt.

    Organic Perspective: Second page center frame, the boxes are very similar in size and don't read very well for creating depth.

    Overall, I think the work shows fair understanding of lesson material, execution will come with time and practice.

    Next Steps:

    The 250 box challenge would be the next step, it will give a lot of practice with vanishing points and understanding how they influence the perspective.

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
