Hey!

Well done on all the boxes and the progress!

I can see you've had some trouble with the vanishing points and placing the back corner. Make sure you stay conscious of those whenever you move along with practicing boxes. You have quite a variety of boxes too, good going!

My main critique will be about the placement of the objects. You have drawn too many boxes on one page. I think the maximum that you should squeeze on a page is 5, and making sure they're all big enough and not too close to the edge. It's easier to analyse what you need to work on if you draw a bit bigger and if there's less on a page, when there's not a mess of lines going over eachother and other boxes.

You should try practicing a couple of more pages of boxes during lesson 2, but I will not give this as something you need to revise. Please do post any spare pages you make for critique on the Discord server or let others know if you're still having trouble with figuring out any aspect!

Next Steps:

move onto lesson 2

Thank you very much for the reply!

I'll keep what you said in mind and practise in-between lessons.

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.
