Hi Santy,

I will be reviewing your homework today.

Starting with your pages of super imposed lines exercise, your lines look confident. There is slight fraying in your second page in a few lines, but overall it looks good. The ghosted lines exercise looks good. There is no wobbling of lines. The ghosted planes exercise looks remarkable. You have drawn all your planes in different perspective. The first page of the exercise has some lines with slight wobbling, you should look out for that. The table of ellipses are looks very good. The ellipses are in bound and don't overlap. The ellipses in planes exercise looks remarkable. All the ellipses are well-bound and inside the planes. The funnels exercise looks good. The minor axis cuts the ellipses in half. The plotted perspective looks good. You were supposed to divide the page into 3 frames and do the exercise in each. But I think you understand the aims of the exercise. The rough perspective exercise looks okay. I can see some repeated lines here. You should avoid that, if you messed up a line, you should keep it as it is and move on. The rotated perspective exercise looks good. Oganic perspective exercise looks good too.

Overall, I think you have understood the main aims of the lesson. Congratulations of completing Lesson 1. Always remember to draw from your shoulder. Keep coming back to these exercises as warm up in the future. Have fun with the 50/50 rule. I think you are ready to move on to the step, the 250 box challenge.

Next Steps:

Move on to the 250 box challenge.

Come back to these exercises as warm up (for 10-15 minutes)

### The Art of Brom

Here we're getting into the subjective - Gerald Brom is one of my favourite artists (and a pretty fantastic novelist!). That said, if I recommended art books just for the beautiful images contained therein, my list of recommendations would be miles long.

The reason this book is close to my heart is because of its introduction, where Brom goes explains in detail just how he went from being an army brat to one of the most highly respected dark fantasy artists in the world today. I believe that one's work is flavoured by their life's experiences, and discovering the roots from which other artists hail can help give one perspective on their own beginnings, and perhaps their eventual destination as well.
