Hello, Essiew! Here's some feedback:


  • Superimposed lines look good. Lines are fairly confident and start on the dot.

  • Ghosted lines mostly end near the dot but there is a slight curve / wobble to some of them. Remember to prioritize drawing confident lines as accuracy will come with practice.

  • Ah, the Ghosted Planes exercise is actually seperate from the Ellipses in Planes exercise, so you need to upload two pages here.


  • Ellipses in your Tables and Planes exercises are fairly confident.

  • Funnels look confident as well and the ellipses are nearly aligned with the minor axis lines.


  • Plotted perspective looks completed, no other comments.

  • Most of your horizontal and vertical lines in your Rough Perspective are parallel to the horizon line / page edge, so good job! There are one or two lines that are a bit off but there will be more chance to practice in the 250 Box Challenge.

  • Good attempt at the Rotated Boxes exercise. There is a clear use of space and lines from neighbouring boxes to figure out where the next box should be. There is room to rotate the boxes on the edges more, however, as the whole thing should resemble more of a sphere.

  • Organic Boxes look good too as you are able to use scale to convey 3D space.

Next Steps:

Upload the two pages for the Ghosted Planes and you should be good to move onto the 250 Box Challenge!

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Thanks! I see it there. I've marked the lesson as complete ... hopefully your badge will go through! Sorry for the late reply - I was without internet access for a couple of days.

Next Steps:

Move on to the 250 Box Challenge next!

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
