    Hi. I think your submission looks really good. I especially like your textures! I'm sorry I can't really think of any criticism to offer as all your pages look pretty solid. I'd say you are ready to move on to Lesson 3!

    Next Steps:

    Move on to the next lesson!

    Hey, no problem I think I did the same thing when I finished lesson 1. I didn't check back for a while haha. No worries! These look good I'll mark it as complete!

    Hi, I think everything looks really good, however I noticed that some of the boxes on your organic perspective pages look really distorted. This can happen when the vanishing points are too close together. I suggest revisiting that part of the lesson. One thing that helped me was ploting out the points first to make sure they look right by placing a dot, then using the ghosting method to draw the line. If you watch the video by ScyllaStew at the bottom of that page I believe she demonstrates that method. It worked well for me (you don't have to watch the whole 3 hour video though ;) ).

    I'd really like to see you do another page of organic perspective before moving on to 250 boxes and lesson 2 before I mark the lesson as complete.

    Next Steps:

    Please do 1 more page of organic perspective.

    When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

    Hey I think this is really good. I really like your elipse pages and I think your organic boxes look really good too. You should move on to 250 boxes and lesson 2.

    Next Steps:

    Move on to 250 boxes and lesson 2.

    I think every thing looks good, one thing I would mention though is that your boxes on the organic perspective exercise have some issues. One thing you can do to improve your boxes is to plan out the lines first by placing a dot then using the ghosting technique to draw the lines. I'd really like to see you to do one more page of Organic Perspective before moving on to 250 boxes.

    Next Steps:

    Please do one more page of oragnic perspective and use the ghosting technique to draw the lines .

    Hi, I'd like to critique your work here.

    Your superimposed lines show a lot of fraying throughout. However this should improve with time. I would suggest doing some as a warm-up before you draw every day. Your ghosted lines look good though.

    Your planes and elipses also look good, my only comment here would be that some of your elipses look like you are going over the elipse more than 3 times which is discouraged. You should be able to get the right shape in 2-3 lines. However most of them look good. So I am not worried here.

    On the organic perspective page, some of your lines are extending past your corners but most of them are okay. One thing you can do to help with this is plane out the line by placing a dot where you want it to end then remember to use ghosting when drawing the line.

    Overall I think it looks good though. I think you are ready to move on to 250 boxes, so I will mark the lesson as complete.

    Next Steps:

    Move on to 250 boxes!

    No problem! Your oragnic boxes look a lot better! I'll mark the lesson as complete. Good luck on 250 boxes!

    Next Steps:

    Continue with 250 boxes.

    Hi. I'd like to review your lesson and give you some feedback. Overall looks good, but there are some points I want to mention. First, your superimposed lines have a lot of fraying throughout the line. It is a little too much in my opinon but something that should improve with time. I would suggest doing them as a warmup for a while as you go throughout the lessons. Doing this has definitely helped me.

    Your elipses and ghosted lines look really good as do your planes. Your plotted perspective and rough perspective pages are also good, with the exception of where it appears you tried to make the lines thicker as you said and it created double lines. I think this will improve with time if you add some exercises as a warm up though. However, good job on those.

    For the organic perspective pages, some of the boxes have very dramatic foreshortening which you should try to avoid on this exercise. Also your lines are extending a bit past each corner. I'm not sure if you did this, but I would suggest planing out each line by placing a point and then ghosting the line a few times before laying down the final line. That should help with getting the shape right and not overshooting the corners. I'd really like to see one more page of organic perspective with some improvements though.

    Next Steps:

    Before I mark this lesson as complete I'd like to see 1 more page of organic perspective where you plan out each line a bit more and have less dramatic perspective Here is good link to check out that should help with that.

    I'd also recommend you do a page of ghosted lines and superimposed lines as a warm up beofre you draw every day to help improve accuracy and line control, this is just a suggestion, but I personally think it will help you impove over time if you do this.

    Thank you so much for your review. I wish I had seen your demos earlier they make things a lot clearer. Thanks again!

    Thank you so much for your critique. Sorry for the late reply, I didn't get the notification and only realized you left a critique when I came back to upload the 250 box challenge.

    I will definitely work on not reinforcing my lines. Also about the arbitray extensions I think I was not planning the lines as well as missing where the stopping point should have been because of the lack of planning. Later one when I started to plan and put a point where I wanted to end my accuracy improved. It's still something I need to work on though as from time to time I still miss the mark.

    Here are the 1 page of rough perspective and another organic perspective pages. I somehow missed that I needed 2 rough perspective pages. For some reason my lines are really wobbly. I think because I took a huge break to upload and edit the 34 images for the 250 boxes, looking back I should have done a warm up first.
