    Thank for your helpful analysis Pluto!

    I will take note of the mistakes I did and improve upon them

    Here's my critique:


    • Exercise: Superimposed Lines

      -nicely packed only little visible frying

    • Exercise: Ghosted Lines

      -lines are smooth and consistent, it rarely wobbles, rarely misses the points, and rarely arcs

    • Exercise: Ghosted Planes

      -you're planes are incomplete you have ignored bisecting some parts of the planes (mostly the middle) learning and getting used to bisecting this planes is important because this is a tool we will be applying to future lessons you're lines however are very crisp and mostly on the point.

    Overall: You done a job with your line work they are smooth and consistent it rarely does mistakes but with the planes however I think you shouldn't have skipped bisecting the middle of the planes it is an integral tool in perspective and drawing ellipses


    • Exercise: Tables of Ellipses

      -you're ellipses are good it rarely goes out or misses the bounds

    • Exercise: Ellipses in Planes (needing revision)

      -now this is where you could see why the middle bisection is important those bisections are your guide to draw those

      ellipses correctly, there's visible struggle in your ellipses it's trying to find those bisections I want you to redo assignment so you could understand and use this as a tool in the future.

    • Exercise: Funnels

      -you're ellipses are good it rarely goes out or misses the bounds

    Overall: Good job on the ellipses again it rarely misses the bounds I just think I need to make u redo the ellipses in planes because so you could see why Drawabox makes us bisect those planes


    • Exercise: Plotted Perspective

      -nice job on the plotted perspective

    • Exercise: Rough Perspective

      -good job in the rough perspective your perspective are not that far off however you did struggle a bit with drawing the

      insides of the box

    • Exercise: Rotated Boxes

      -the boxes that are most close to the perspective point are okay but the farther the boxes from the perspective point gets

      very wonky like it's a little way too off at times but forgivable you could make it up by doing the 250 box challenge after

      you do the revision I request

    • Exercise: Organic Perspective

      Not gonna lie I think you're boxes here are little rushed and seems to have little planning at all but I think I could also

      forgive you for that and recommend to do a better job in the 250 box challenge instead

    Overall: Try being more patient and plan the boxes more thoroughly because you honestly have really good lines it's a waste to just rush those boxes so again do your best in the 250 box challenge

    Conclusion: You done a fantastic job I simply just think that you missed the point of the ghosted planes and ellipses in planes exercises and you should be more thoughtful about the boxes you draw.

    P.S. Sorry for giving requesting a revision

    Next Steps:

    I want you to repeat the Ellipses in Planes I want to see that you do the bisections justice and take advantage of those bisections for doing the ellipses. Thank you

    When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.
Staedtler Pigment Liners

Staedtler Pigment Liners

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
