Im gonna try and help, hopefully I don't confuse you more. We're trying to stop thinking in 2D and start thinking in 3D. Try making 2 of the four points of the plane further in space (They both need to be on the same edge). Then you can play around with the perspective of the plane. Also a square is equal on all four side, with these planes you can play around with the length on all sides. Hope that helped let me know if you need an example or anything.

Hello chieftang, welcome to drawabox.

• Lines:

They look confident. For superimposed lines, Remember that there should only be fraying on one side, not both. Pretty sure its only one page of ghosted lines but hey nothing wrong with more practice. You also could have put your ellipses in the first planes that you had but more practice right.

Ellipses:

I like your tables of ellipses, they look really confident and you are only drawing through 2-3 times. For your funnels, you should not draw the ellipse in the middle.

Boxes:

Your boxes also seem pretty confident. The first part in your plotted perspective looks really confusing but the second two look much better. Your rotated boxes look good too.

Next Steps:

250 box challenge

Hello mythicnate welcome to drawabox.

Your lines look good. Try to add some varying lines in superimposed lines like squiggles if you know what I mean.

Ghosted lines and ellipses in planes also look good, remember to draw through your ellipses 2-3 times. Tables of ellipses I like how confident and smooth your ellipses look. For your boxes, in plotted perspective remember to not shade the part where another box is covering the one behind it. Rotated boxes,You need to shade the sides of the boxes you can see. Organic perspective, you should play around with the sizes a little more, and you need to add shading. Overall really good job but I am gonna ask for more organic perspective before you go on to your first challenge. Remember to play around with different sizes. Dont be scared to mess up.

Next Steps:

2 pages organic perspective

Hello Maksim welcome to drawabox. Great job on completing lesson 1.

• Lines:

Superimposed lines look good but try not to go back to the original line drawn when you deviate from it. Commit to it and draw it all the way through even if it isn't coming out how you want it to. Your ghosted lines look good as well. Ellipses in planes,lines look fine and I like the variety of the planes.

• Ellipses:

For the ellipses though, you wanna keep the times that you draw through them at like 2-3. Other than that your ellipses look fairly confident and smooth for the most part.

• Boxes:

Your boxes look good, just remember that in rotated boxes you need to shade the sides of the boxes that you can see (idk if that makes sense). I like your organic perspective exercise your boxes look really good.

Next Steps:

250 box challenge

Hello Alex, welcome back. Your lines look pretty good for the most part. I do wanna suggest that on superimposed lines you put some more variety in your lines (perhaps add some twists and turns). Also, for ghosted lines try to always start your lines from a point and shoot for another. Your ellipses in planes have one big issue which is that you are drawing through the ellipse too many times. 2-3 times is how many you should be doing. Same with your tables of ellipses and your funnels. For your boxes, you are missing 4 pages total (1 page of rotated boxes, 2 pages of rough perspective, 1 page of plotted perspective). I suggest you review the material before doing those.

For the contour lines, I think I was trying to figure out a way of how they would look towards the middle, but I don't know how I let myself make them look like that lol. Anyways here are the revisions, hopefully I did better. I hope you review all of my work I have left to do. Your videos are really helpful. Here is the link - https://imgur.com/a/zCSypXj

### Proko's Figure Drawing Fundamentals

Stan Prokopenko's had been teaching figure drawing as far back as I can remember, even when I was just a regular student myself. It's safe to say that when it comes to figure drawing, his tutelage is among the best.
