These exercises seem fairly well done. However, there are a few notable things you might want to work on.

Most majorly, your line quality. You seem to have a good deal of trouble with making clean confident lines. Personally, i recommend doing the ghosting and superimposed lines a fair few more times to try and help improve that. It'll make everything harder if you don't try and address that.

Second major thing i noticed was with your ellipses, you seem to have significant trouble pushing them as far as you need to, to take up the whole given space. I recommend doing more ellipses as well as a warmup in order to help improve this.

Overall, i think you're doing fairly well.

Next Steps:

Continue to work on these exercises as homework, and move on to the 250 box challenge.

Thank you for the critique! You make very good points, I'll work more on my linework and ellipses when I'm doing my warmups!

Color and Light by James Gurney

Color and Light by James Gurney

Some of you may remember James Gurney's breathtaking work in the Dinotopia series. This is easily my favourite book on the topic of colour and light, and comes highly recommended by any artist worth their salt. While it speaks from the perspective of a traditional painter, the information in this book is invaluable for work in any medium.
