Hi, I'll critique your work. Sorry you happened to just wait for so long


Your Superimposed Lines look confident. No real wobbling/course-correcting here. You improved in terms of fraying on either end on the second page. Nice job at confidence there

Your Ghosted Lines also look confident. Next steps for this would be striving to hit both points.

You also should've experimented with the orientation of the lines. Place random points, rather than have them lined up. It's not a big mistake, but in doing this, you miss opportunities getting used to rotating the page. Don't worry if it gets a bit cluttered. The important thing is that you use the ghosting method.

That said, you still did a good job ghosting.

Your Ghosted Planes look a bit off. I'm pretty sure you're supposed to have various sizes and orientations of planes. Other than that, your lines seem to curve sometimes to hit the end points. We shouldn't try to correct our lines to hit the end points. If your lines are confident and straight, but miss the points, that's ok. It's best to prioritize confidence and flow over accuracy. Ghosting more can help you with making your lines straighter, while also aiming for both ends.


There are a lot of wobbly ellipses in your Tables of Ellipses. Perhaps you didn't trust your arm when you executed the strokes. Perhaps you rushed the ghosting process. But your ellipses seem to fit snugly into the spaces. That's good, you just need to prioritize smoothness/confidence over accuracy. Only strive for accuracy when you can make smooth confident ellipses first.

Your ellipses got decently better at the Ellipses in Planes. Your ellipses got more confident, but there are a few cases where you prioritized hitting all four edges, rather than achieving smoothness.

Besides that, there isn't much variety in the planes, so the kinds/sizes of ellipses you got to make were very limited.

Your Funnels look pretty good. Looks like you prioritized confidence more than accuracy, that's good. There are still some wobbly ellipses, but you're heading in the right direction in terms of smoothness.

While rotating the page is not as prominent in this exercise, it's still nice to get used to. One of your funnels pages had the funnels only in one rotation. Don't be afraid to have your funnels in different angles/sizes.


Plotted Perspective was done correctly.

Rough Perspective looks rough. A lot of the lines are wavy. It got better over time, just don't forget how important ghosting is. You also shouldn't go over your lines multiple times. Only one mark for one line. Even if you missed the mark, don't repeat it. Understandable though that your line quality dipped, because this is our first time making something from these lines. Just don't rush the ghosting method. If you need to ghost a ton of times, do it. It's better to make a few smooth strokes, than a lot of wobbly strokes.

Your Rotated Boxes also looks rough. You didn't really keep your gaps narrow, and you didn't really use neighboring lines to your advantage. There are a lot of marks for each individual line, and there are a few wobbly lines. Again, don't rush. But this is one of the harder exercises, so nice try regardless.

Your Organic Perspective boxes look, decent. Besides the repeated marks, some boxes look like the parallel lines don't have a specific vanishing point. While we don't actually have vanishing points to work with, we still have to try our best having those lines converge. Still, nice try at this spatial challenge.


You had some confidence going into this, but then you started going for accuracy, sacrificing confidence. We can strive for both confidence and accuracy, just break it into steps, working your way starting with confidence. If you're rushing the ghosting process, don't. It's supposed to help your arm make the best mark possible. Ghost as much as you need for your arm to become comfortable with the motion for the mark.

Don't repeat marks, even if it misses the points.

Try putting units of work (such as planes and funnels) in different rotations. Again, rotating the page is not as important, but it's best to grasp it now, because eventually you'll run into making marks that are rotated differently as you construct complex object.

It's okay that you struggled with a lot of these. Some of these exercises are meant to throw you into the deepest end of the pool, and have you learn to swim there. In other words, failing is normal in this course. Just get back up, and keep going.

Again, nice try.
