    Thank you!

    Was a really difficult challenge to go through, did around 6 boxes (somedays more) a day and it got a bit straining. However I am glad I got through.

    I should have really focused a lot more on forshortening. I somewhat forgot about it after a while and I should have gone through the challenge page a few times more throughout. I will keep that in mind while doing this excercise as warmup.

    Hope you have a great day too! I gave you critique too. Hope you will find that helpful.

    Hello EIJIH_!

    Congratulations on getting this far! This challenge is not easy, so you should be proud that you pulled it off, good job!

    Also thanks for taking the time to review my 250 box challenge too! Really appreciate it.

    Now, onto the critique:

    Box 1-100:

    I feel like the convergence on most of these lines are very close to parallel and as such the lines aren't converging into the VP. For readability it is also good to go through the outer lines of the box with another confident and ghosted line to make it read even better. I also feel like some lines are overshot or gone through more than once. I did/do this as well but it is important to remind yourself to let mistakes be mistakes and not try to correct them. However, it should be noted that this is an impressive and promising start to the challenge. Also a lot of these problems got addressed over time and it seems you realized most of these mistakes yourself within the first 100.

    Box 101-250:

    Pretty much everything from the previous critique has been addressed or worked towards being addressed. However, there are still a few small points to point out. I am unsure if you are going over the outer lines one extra time for readability, this is because sometimes it seems unevenly applied, like at box 247 it looks like it is applied everywhere except the bottom left line (closest to the viewer) . Otherwise it seems you are moving in the right direction and you've made very good progress going through these boxes! Amazing job!

    Drawing even one box takes deceivingly long and sure can be hard to plan into your day. Keep up the good work legend!

    Have a fantastic day and thank you again for giving critique on my box challenge too :) See you in Lesson 2!

    Next Steps:

    Keep doing what you're doing, you have noticed your own mistakes and I can see that you are working towards addressing them. Do not forget to go over the outer lines one extra time for readability and keep practicing ghost and taking your time with each line

    Ah! Must have slipped my first submisson. I'll be more careful next time, apologies for making you come back to this post to check this.

    Here are the Ghosted Lines:

    Thank you so much for your feedback! It really means a lot! I will come back to this and use it as reference in the future. Really excited to tackle these issues in further session. I wish you the best too!

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
