Your lines looks very nice aswell your ellipses!

Your lines are pretty good, but I saw some kinda of wobbling in the boxes.

Your ellipses are very nice! But in the table of ellipses some are in the wrong axis.

Next Steps:

I think you are pretty solid for the next lessons! Go for it.

Thankyou, these were done before I was sure I would be signing up.

I am doing the 250 box challenge at the moment and my lines are getting much straighter.

Does this count as official critique? I am a bit bemused as to where community, official critiques ( ie patreon credit ones ) are done. Also when this forum should be used or the reddit one ( I'm not a fan of reddit )?

I will go back to the lesson 2 shortly and take a break from boxes at the halfway point I think.

PS when you say ellipses are off-axis, is this on the page with boxes filled with ellipses? Have I missed a rule?

I'm just a student as you, I found this post when searching for examples and to see how well the community is doing.

As far as I know normal users can mark a lesson as complete.

When you submitted your work you checked the box for official critique? If so maybe you need waiting...

About the ellipses it's nothing special is just my opinion what you may improve, some are more tilted thank other but don't take this serious because I'm not an expert or anything I'm just trying to help people to improve :)

Thanks, i appreciate any feedback as it helps me take a closer look. I didn't upload for official critique cause I hadn't signed up at the point.

I think I will need to re-upload and check the right box.

Staedtler Pigment Liners

Staedtler Pigment Liners

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
