First of all, congratulations on completing Lesson 1!

Page 1-3: Your lines look good. They consistently start on one end, and they look confidently drawn to the other end, even if there was some fraying. I did notice some of the longer lines arched a little bit. This might be due to not drawing from the shoulder.

Page 4-5: I noticed some wobble. Specifically, the lines drawn on the left side of the box. Remember it is better to draw lines that are confident, rather than accurate.

Page 6: Funnels - good job keeping the ellipses symmetrical. However, the ellipses look a little wobbly.

Page 7-8: Table of Ellipses looks good.

Page 9-10: Ellipses in Planes - for the most part, looks good. Your ellipses touch all four sides of the plane. However, I do see some wobble.

Page 11: Plotted Perspective - looks good.

Page 12-13: Rough Perspective - good job in getting your boxes to head towards the vanishing point. Remember to draw your lines confidently, and do not repeat lines.

Page 14-16: Rotated Boxes and Organic Perspective - looks good

Next Steps:

Half a page of funnels to iron out the wobbles in the ellipses section.

Thank you so much for the critique! I've attached a link to my new funnels below:

Kindly let me know if I need to make any other revisions or if I am ready to proceed to the next section.

### 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.
