    Thanks for what you said about my critique. That was my first and I tried to go straight since I am not that advanced on Draw A Box. Hope it helped Hal9000.

    Sure I may see your 250 Boxes, but right now I'm on phone and it's too small to see it well. As soon as I have access to my notebook I will give a look.

    See ya!

    My oppinion is we are too bad to judge ourselves, especially when we don't have the tools and knowledge to judge it well.

    We always need feedback from other people who are better than us, and you will recieve when you post your exercises. Don't fear to show a mess - the worst thing to happen is: a more advanced person will point out what you need to do to be better - and that's awesome!

    You will not advance if you not prepared for, the critique can sugest you to do redo some exercises. If it will be the case of dissections, it's no problem. You will redo knowing what's going wrong.

    More than that: you will have many oportunities to improve your textures, it's not the last time you do that, it's just the first time.

    I think you can do a little study of the texture before trying to put on the sausage form when you think it's too complex.

    TL;DR: The time you spend trying to judge your own work can be saved showing the work to someone who can judge it better. Do the exercises and post it to critique.

    My first time doing a critique. I'm just a student on Lesson 2 (waiting critique to start Lesson 3), so maybe I'm not the best to do this, but i guess I can help.

    Superimposed lines: i think it's good in general, but the long lines goes a little curved

    Ghosted lines: I see confidence in lines. sometimes little curves

    ghosted planes: i think it's very good, nice ellipses

    Table of ellipses: nice and smooth ellipses, the very last on bottom right is a little off, but i think is very good in general

    Funnels: the minor axis is consistent, not tilted. think its very good

    Plotted perspective: you didnt hatch some boxes, but i think its optional, so the exercise is very good

    Rough perspective: your lines lost confidence here. I think you need extra train on ghosting lines. By the core of exercises, you hitted very close to vanishing point and its good

    Rotated boxes: think its very good. height and width are pretty close, it's sphere-like and symmetrical

    Organic perspective: i see some problems here. the lines seems not confident and the back side of the boxes sometimes doesn't gets smaller (by perspective, they are not REALY getting smaller). The scale of the boxes (getting bigger more closer they are) is good.

    I'm impressed by your ellipses (i think its better than mine) and by rotated boxes. Your lines needs more ghosting and more confidence, if you train this you're probably good to advance.

    EDIT: I messed up when I said your next step is Lesson 2. You need 250 Boxes Challenge first. I tried edit it but I can't

    Next Steps:

    Lesson 2

    This community member feels the lesson should be marked as complete. In order for the student to receive their completion badge, this critique will need 2 agreements from other members of the community.

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.
