Congrats on finishing the 250 box challenge!!

I have uploaded my own boxes challenge today, and can tell it definitely was a big deal : )

It is such a pleasure to see the improvement of your boxes during the pages. In the end, I have no remarks about your work.

The boxes mostly are built correctly. You were using different sizes and orientations and even went creative, as in boxes 234-237. I loved that approach. It is obvious that you get the subject.

And your lines are so straight and confident! Didn't you use a ruler? If not - it's wow! If yes - you really should not.

Well, just to make at least one useful admonition - your hatching isn't quite accurate. But it wasn't the focus of this exercise at all, and I believe you are conscious of that yourself.

So, keep it that way! I see a great draftsman here!

Next Steps:

Move forward to lesson 2.

Be that awesome.

Hello there, I'll try give you some feedback on your boxes:

Actually there is not much to say about your boxes, most of them look very clean, sharp and well constructed! Great job!

  • Sometime your hatching looked a bit messy, so you could invest some more time to make your hatching as clean as the rest of your boxes

  • Also I always recommend hatching the plane that is covering the inner corner, that makes your boxes' perspective read even better and gives them a more consistent look

  • You used differently colored pencils for extending your lines, which is nice!

  • Most of your boxes are converging really nicely and are not foreshortened too extreme nor have parallel lines

Overall you boxes look great, even the first ones, but you got more clean in the process of doing all of them, so now they look nice and believable!

Next Steps:

You can move on to lesson 2!

Color and Light by James Gurney

Color and Light by James Gurney

Some of you may remember James Gurney's breathtaking work in the Dinotopia series. This is easily my favourite book on the topic of colour and light, and comes highly recommended by any artist worth their salt. While it speaks from the perspective of a traditional painter, the information in this book is invaluable for work in any medium.
