Hello I'll review your lesson one for today.

Starting off with your superimposed lines, it looks good. You're going back to the same point, drawing confident lines, and fraying is natural. It looks like you overlapped and superimposed your ghosted lines. The lines were supposed to be just connecting 2 plotted points, not going over the same line. I see you plotted points and everything, but the superimposing makes it hard to see if you actually got to the point you were aiming for an a certain attempt. It just looks like a pile of lines next to a bunch of dots and I cant really tell what is for what. Especially with the area that is completely frayed. I think you understand how the exercise works, but for the sake of critique it is hard to judge how well you did. You're still keeping confidence with ghosted planes and lines are accurate though.

Your Table of Ellipses are doing well, you're rounding them twice and making sure to fit within the bounds, as well as getting that circular shape. Same for the ellipses in planes. The ellipses stay within the planes and are having a strong and confident form. Your funnels are done well. They stay symmetrical on both sides of the ellipse, and are confident. They also fit snug within the space. Although, for some it is hard to judge because theyre so compact and skinny near the middle.

Plotted perspective has nice overlap and looks seems you're understanding vanishing points. In rough perspective you show a strong sense of understanding how you're supposed to trace back to the vanishing points. I think the line weight feels a little much though. The rotated boxes are good. You got your full rotation and it seems you understand how boxes move in 3-D space. Your organic perspective has good rotation. There is solid change in your initial Y and change in perspective. You used overlap as well. Good job.

I had a little problem with the plotted perspective at first, but I'll let it slide, because I think you're able to understand how line plotting works from the other assignments. I think you did great and are ready to move onto the 250 box challenge!

Next Steps:

Just continue onto the 250 box challenge, and continue doing the line and ellipse exercises as warm-ups!

Hi! JCTRISK. Thanks for taking the time to see/check/review my work!!!

Sorry for the late reply, I just saw it and I'm really happy to read it.

I'm already working on Lesson 3. I need to take photos of the other lessons.

I see you completed Lesson 5. Amazing. Keep the good work!! This review motivated me to comment on other people's work :)

### Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
