On the second page the top and bottom left boxes have red lines that are extending in the wrong direction and every box on the 3rd page has at least one set extending incorrectly as well.

Without any numbering I unfortunately can't tell if these were the first boxes you drew and you learned how to correct the issue as you progressed or if you possibly stopped paying as close attention and your quality suffered later on.

Either way there's still room to improve so I'll be asking you to draw 5 more boxes, hopefully all 5 of them have proper line extensions and if not we can address the issue further.

Next Steps:

5 more boxes please.

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Hello again.

Unfortunately there are still some sets of lines being extended incorrectly:

  • Green lines in box 1.

  • Red lines in box 2

  • Green lines in box 3

  • Green and blue lines in box 4

Are all extended in the opposite direction. I'll point you toward this section as well as your previous critique for the explanations on how to place your lines in the correct direction.

I am unfortunately going to need to ask for 5 more but don't get discouraged, revisions are a part of the process. If you have any questions you're more than welcome to ask them before getting started.

Next Steps:

5 more boxes please.

I figured out what you were talking about so I tried a different approach.

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.
