    Thank you so much and no worries, happened to me also. There's not so much distinction between being logged in and not. Also since this is not official critique it wasn't blocking me at all, I simply moved on to the next lesson, so no harm done :)

    Thanks again for all the pointers and taking your time to do the critique

    First of all thank you for taking time to critique my work. I've tried to analyze my work too and I think my problem isn't with understanding the concepts (I can draw a box with a ruller using vanishing points just fine) but with as I like to call it double E: estimating and execution which in my case is nowhere near perfect. And I really hope this will come with practice and become muscle memory at some point.

    Anyway I tried my best to rectify my mistakes from 250 box challenge in these additional 50 boxes drill. As requested I added thickness and hatching although I don't care about bonus points ;) I'm here to learn not gain points ;) (Although I understand it's just a figure of speech)

    You can find my work at the imgur link below and I would really appreciate if you could review and critique that. Thanks again!

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
