Should i redo the homework before submitting?

6:08 PM, Sunday April 14th 2024

I have almost completed the exercises of Lesson 1 and, comparing the first exercises I did to my current warmups, I am in doubt if I should submit my first version of the exercises or if I should redo everything and submit an improved version which reflects my current level.

Thanks for your attention

I would review this video from Lesson 0, as well as the section below it on grinding. We take a very firm stance in this course that students should not be deciding whether or not they ought to redo their work themselves, and instead rely on third party feedback to make that decision for them.

I think it'd be best to submit what you already did, so you can at least receive some feedback and tips before you redo any exercises.

imho submissions of this type should reflect progress and directed drawing.

If you're okay with doing the homeworks over again, I think getting feedback on your current level of skill would be more helpful in your journey. Hope it helps!

Definitely don't redo everything before submitting. I would submit your first attempts, the whole point of these exercises is to see growth in your abilities. Worst case scenario, you will be asked to do a revision of any exercises that were done wrong. Your goal isnt to be perfect, you just need to give an honest attempt and follow the directions. Redoing everything will likely discourage you from moving forward in the course.

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.
