Hello, I'm new to giving critiques so I'm hoping that you will find this helpful


-Your superimposed lines are looking nice and confident and you started off from a clear point every time. There is fraying at one end, but this will improve with practice.

-Ghosted lines look great and they have a consistent trajectory. Accuracy cannot be forced just yet, but I believe you will not have to worry about that as you mostly have smooth and confident lines here as well.

-The ghosted planes are the same as the ghosted lines and you did well with the confident strokes.


-Your ellipses are looking great as they are done with confidence and are mostly symmetrical. You also did well with the angles, tidiness, and spacing of them.

-In the ghosted planes they do look a bit unsymmetrical and I would like to mention that they do not have to touch all contact points in the planes. They will stay symmetrical regardless of the position they are in and with well rounded ends. However, you did well with executing them.

-Funnels are looking very good and I see that you kept them symmetrical and aligned with the axis.


-I see that your lines are carried out with confidence and are not repeated. Some of your estimations for the vanishing point are a bit off, but this will improve with further practice.

-On the rotated boxes your lines look more confident and I advise to refer to the lesson each time you use this as a warmup.

-Lastly, the organic boxes look decent and some of the minor issues here will be addressed later in the Box Challenge.

  • Rember to use these as warmups

I'm going to mark this as complete and I belive you can move on :)

Next Steps:

250 Box Challenge

This community member feels the lesson should be marked as complete, and 2 others agree. The student has earned their completion badge for this lesson and should feel confident in moving onto the next lesson.

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.
