sorry i still dont really understand how you "choose one line" where do you start to draw the line?

I had to experiment a lot before getting it ( I think ). It's easier to try a lot of examples and see what looks right.

Break it down to the simplest example.

Draw a plane in space like in the earlier exercise. Draw a line that goes over the the top of it. Now start inking from one end of the line until it looks like it has reached the the plane. Stop there. That is a basic step of the exercise.

I think it is something that you need to keep trying, evaluating, and eventually something clicks. Rewatch the example videos too.

PS I now remember that I created a couple of A4 sheets of shapes. I then printed out several copies of each. I practiced on these until I managed to get the hang of it. You really have to use your brain to visualise.

I had a go at the first one. I would advise you to keep it simple to start with, this one is very complicated.

And if you choose to swap the boxes around.

This is why the first line you decide on fixes which way the objects intersect.

Here is how I would do example 3 ( roughly ). Once you have establised the point where the edge meets the plane you then need to think how the two planes interact. How does one cat the other ( it has to be on the planes surface. ). Expect to see more angled lines not just right angles.

### 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.
