## Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes

##### 11:06 PM, Tuesday February 13th 2024

The largest takeaway I have is to slow down, plan, and ghost. The majority of my mistakes I can identify from being impatient or rushing through for some reason. Additionally, there are times I've noticed going back into elbow/wrist pivots instead of utilizing my shoulder.

I did an extra page of the Ghosted Lines homework, as well.

Hello and welcome to drawabox. Congratulations on finishing lesson 1.

Lines - Superimposed lines look good, I would have like to see some more variety though. Ghosted lines also look good, I appreciate that you added the second page with much more lines than the first.

Ellipses - Ellipses in planes is also good. For now just worry about loosening up your arm, not accuracy. Tables of ellipses are good too. Try to remember that you should be keeping your ellipses compact, and that they should not overlap one another.

I always hated funnels. So first of all the degree of the ellipses should be increasing as they move out from the middle (Smaller in the middle, bigger on the outside). Second, I see on one that you do not have the same amount of ellipses on one side as you do on the other side.

Boxes - For rough perspective, you forgot to add the lines in color that go back towards the vanishing point. Rotated boxes, you need to add the hatching to be able to distinguish the sides of each box. Reread the material if you need too. Organic perspective, I liked your second page more than the first one. Especially the top portion.

Next Steps:

Another page of funnels. Corrections on rough perspective and rotated boxes (You can use the same pages you submitted, just add the corrections to them). Go back through lesson material if needed.

Thank you so much for your time and effort! I value your feedback.

I think I see where your hatred of funnels comes from. They can be pesky! I should probably spend more time in warm ups to become more familiar.

I appreciate your patience as I overlook some instruction; I seem to have room to grow in my patience and am rushing things at times. I'm happy to have some help to identify that, among other things.

Here's the updated images. I've included a new page of funnels, the revised rotated boxes page, and the two pages of revised rough perspective.

Again, thank you for your time and efforts!

I'll see you on the other side of 250, or so, boxes!

I hope you find nothing but success and growth in achieving your goals!

Donieldoom, your stuff looks pretty good, better than some of mine.

Feedback:

• I think your ellipses are a little too loose at times, or maybe you did not go around enough times.

• On the rough perspective you never drew lines back to check if your boxes are aligned to the vanishing point, I believe that was a required part of the exercise. I would go back and do that.

Next Steps:

Overall, I would say you are ready to move on to the 250 boxes challenge. Just go back and check if your boxes in the rough perspective exercise are correct.
