Hello again o/ I've also finished this challenge, twice now, since i was very eager to get into it before any other lesson, along with the cylinder one, ive just learnt so much i didnt know about constructing them from the videos i had to do them, but im very glad i went through the first lesson after all. So here's the aftermath of all that.

I would be concerned with there being far too many boxes per page. I am part way ( about 200 ) through this challenge. At the 100 mark I asked the question to my assessor ( on the Patreon plan ) whether I was cramming to many in because I was doing 12 per A4 page. They said yes, so I reduced it to 6.

This allows you to test yourelf with longer straight lines and will test your accuracy and visioning of vanishing points much harder, as well as making assesment easier due to better clarity.

Next Steps:

My suggestion would be to do another 50 boxes, but 6 per page and see how that challenges you.

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Heyo, thank you for this reply too, i just got pointed that out today by a friend as well, i may have misread the challenge's tips. I'm definitely down to draw more boxes, and i may end up doing the whole thing again after the first 50. Cheers o>

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.
