ok so here's my entire work for lesson 1. i made a mistake on my first post and i couldn't figure out how to edit the post or delete it, so i'm just posting this again. i just want to see if i can go ahead and start the 250 boxes challenge. hope this post doesn't go unnoticed :( i know i should critique but i don't quite feel comfortable nor confident enough to do so, i will eventually though! i just need more courage. thanks in advance

I can definitely see improvement in your work as time goes on. From Super Imposed Lines to rotated boxes you are hitting your ghosted mark closer and closer.

When it comes to perspective and especially when we are free-handing or roughing it, you can try to ghost your line once or twice all the way to the imagined perspective point before ghosting the actual length of the line. Even if we aren't marking the actual point itself, you can imagine where it is!

In the rotated boxes exercise, I think you should focus more on thinking about where each perspective point is in relation to each other. The center box should have vertical and horizontal points to infinity - as you have shown. The boxes next to the center should have perspective points that converge far away - and the boxes farthest from the center have the closest points.

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

There are a lot of options for illustration software out there, but mine has always been Adobe Photoshop. I've been using it for nearly 20 years now, ever since I started fooling around with digital art, and it has served me well into my career, both in freelancing and in studio positions. One of the biggest advantages, in my opinion, for those jumping into digital art with Photoshop now is its accessibility. Where when I was younger, it'd cost hundreds, even over a thousand dollars for a software license, younger students can now get their feet wet with industry standard software for just $10/month with their Photography Plan.
