## Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes

Your line exercises look great. The lines are confident and have no wobble.

Your ellipses look good... although its hard to tell. The images you uploaded are very low-res so I cant tell if you went over the ellipses more then three times or not. Next time, upload higher res images if you can, and if you did go over your ellipses more then three times, remember to only go over twice.

Once again, its hard to tell, but it looks like some of the horizontal lines in your rough perspective exercise are not parallel to the edges of the frame. But it also looks like you realized this and fixed it in later attempts, so nice job. Other then that, the perspective exercises look good, especially the organic perspective one.

Next Steps:

The next step is to tackle the 250 box challenge, and also remember to upload higher-res images next time.

Thank you for your comments. I'll try to get better resolution on images for future submissions!

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

### Sakura Pigma Microns

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
