    Thanks for your critique. It's quite helpful!

    Remember also that you can add lineweight to the parts of outer lines that overlap with other boxes to clarify which ones are on top and which behind...

    I actually have a question about the lineweight here. For example in this drawing.

    • If I'd like to enphasize that box A is in front of box B then I shall make the red lines thicker and blue lines thinner?

    • If that is the case, how shall I make two different line weights when drawing a line containing both red parts and blue parts (like one of the edges of box B)?

    • Shall I add line weights by drawing the same line two times? It is very likely that if I do this I'll get two slightly fraying lines, just like the ones in the super imposed lines exercise.

Ellipse Master Template

Ellipse Master Template

This recommendation is really just for those of you who've reached lesson 6 and onwards.

I haven't found the actual brand you buy to matter much, so you may want to shop around. This one is a "master" template, which will give you a broad range of ellipse degrees and sizes (this one ranges between 0.25 inches and 1.5 inches), and is a good place to start. You may end up finding that this range limits the kinds of ellipses you draw, forcing you to work within those bounds, but it may still be worth it as full sets of ellipse guides can run you quite a bit more, simply due to the sizes and degrees that need to be covered.

No matter which brand of ellipse guide you decide to pick up, make sure they have little markings for the minor axes.
