Started Drawabox a long time ago,Did Lesson1,250 box challenge and midway through lesson 2 burned out.

After taking a brake of about 3-4 months I have begun drawabox again from the very beginning.

Please Review my work and mark it as complete so that I may proceed.

Your suggestion can be forthright.I will not mind.

Thank you.

Hi Sophistamaan, congrats for finishing lesson 1 (again!). I'll give you some of my critique.

Firstly on your lines. Overall, i see that all your lines are quite smooth and confident, as well as being pretty accurate, good job on that! I guess it's because you've already gone through Lesson 1 and the 250 box challenge. Though there's some fraying on both ends in some lines on your superimposed lines, especially on the longest lines. Do remember to place your pen with a bit of thought.

Next, on your ellipses, they're overall quite well done! Your ellipses are all drawn through, fit in quite snuggly within bounds. Really there's not much i can say.

Finally, on your boxes. As like above, they're pretty great! All your lines are straight and confident, as well as being accurate. Your experience with the 250 box challenge still carries over here imo.

Overall, as a revision of lesson 1, i think you did really great! You've definitly still remember to make smooth and confident lines, and you've understood the objective of the assignments well.

Next Steps:

Feel free to move on to the 250 box challenge :)

And tbh, with the prior experience you've got, i think you might don't need to do the whole challenge again, maybe ~50 boxes to get a grip again in drawing boxes.

Ellipse Master Template

Ellipse Master Template

This recommendation is really just for those of you who've reached lesson 6 and onwards.

I haven't found the actual brand you buy to matter much, so you may want to shop around. This one is a "master" template, which will give you a broad range of ellipse degrees and sizes (this one ranges between 0.25 inches and 1.5 inches), and is a good place to start. You may end up finding that this range limits the kinds of ellipses you draw, forcing you to work within those bounds, but it may still be worth it as full sets of ellipse guides can run you quite a bit more, simply due to the sizes and degrees that need to be covered.

No matter which brand of ellipse guide you decide to pick up, make sure they have little markings for the minor axes.
