Hi there Tastyart! First of all I wanted to say that I am very very VERY incompetent at giving much advice on this, but I wanted to drop by to tell you that when you finish a lesson, you should probably post it not in your sketchbook, but in the lessons and homework category. This way, others can mark your lesson as complete and maybe even request revisions.

Now, from the quick glance I took at your pages, I can tell that you understand the concept of ghosting and are applying it pretty well!

The Elipses in the Tables of Elipses Exercise overlap a little, but that's ok! You are not chasing perfection and you are going to have plenty of time to practice it in your warm-up sessions.

The Ghosted Planes + Elipses look awesome and I appreciate your precision, the same can be said about the Funnels Exercise.

The Perspective exercises don't look absolutely perfect, but I can see that you understood the concept and, once again, practicing being more confident and doing ghosted lines warm-ups will help you a ton! Sometimes I don't get these right either so don't worry :D

In the Rotated Boxes you missed the little corner box, which is a pain to make, but you should try to do it, you got this!

The Organic Perspective Exercise looks pretty nice! Maybe the foreground boxes could be a little bigger and also they don't necessarily need to appear in the predefined space, they could also go a little more off screen.

Now, I think you did an awesome job, but please post this in the Homework category so that it can be marked as completed! Have a great day pal!

Ok thank you so much for taking the time to critique my homework. It means alot and Im not used to it, people openly telling me my strengths, weaknesses and how to apply each to better my future artwork.

I will redo the rotated boxes and i want to fill out another page with Organic perspective in mind. Thanks again.

I ain't no pro, but I finished lesson 1 as well and I can tell you that you are going on the right path! Just do what interests you in this artistic journey, utilize these exercises and you'll be set! Do what you love and love what you do :D

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
