I messed up counting somewhere but it got corrected as soon as I noticed it. Should still be 250 boxes. It's been a wild ride. Happy to see the improvement even if it's not as much as I would have liked!

Hello Tobbe!

I have taken a look at your work.

First off, congrats on finishing the 250 boxes! It is definitely a challenge you have to feel prouf of! So give yourself a nice pat on the back. ;)

Here are my two cents:

FIRST PAGES: (1-100)

  1. Extending lines in wrong direction.

  2. Lines not converging towards VP.

  3. Lines converging towards different points.

LAST PAGES: (100-250)

  1. Some planes converging to diferent VP: Focus on the form overall rather than lines or planes separately.

Overall, I noticed you pointed out your own mistakes as the challenge was going on. Like circling a wrong line or direction, so that's great! You are able to effectively notice your mistakes. So I don't have much critique to offer.

Final thoughts:

  1. Practice more foreshortening

  2. Your line extension improved!

I have just recently posted my own 250 boxes, so if you have time, would appreciate any critique!

Have a great day

Next Steps:

More forshortening! Keep being aware of your mistakes! and onto Lesson 2!

Thank you!

Was a really difficult challenge to go through, did around 6 boxes (somedays more) a day and it got a bit straining. However I am glad I got through.

I should have really focused a lot more on forshortening. I somewhat forgot about it after a while and I should have gone through the challenge page a few times more throughout. I will keep that in mind while doing this excercise as warmup.

Hope you have a great day too! I gave you critique too. Hope you will find that helpful.

Heya! No problem! It is my pleasure :)

There's always things we can improve on, I'm confident you'll grow to be an amazing artist if you keep it up like this!

Thanks for critique!!!

Sketching: The Basics

Sketching: The Basics

A lot of folks have heard about Scott Robertson's "How to Draw" - it's basically a classic at this point, and deservedly so. It's also a book that a lot of people struggle with, for the simple reason that they expect it to be a manual or a lesson plan explaining, well... how to draw. It's a reasonable assumption, but I've found that book to be more of a reference book - like an encyclopedia for perspective problems, more useful to people who already have a good basis in perspective.

Sketching: The Basics is a far better choice for beginners. It's more digestible, and while it introduces a lot of similar concepts, it does so in a manner more suited to those earlier in their studies.
