I think what you have is good. Granted, I'm new to critique, but from what I can tell you're following the lessons as intended. There's some fraying in your line exercises, but that's to be expected at this point. You also might be going over your ellipses too many times (2 is the recommendation, but you seem to be doing it 3 times, which is also acceptable, but makes it look a bit messy). Aside from that, your lines are smooth and confident, something I myself need to work on, and you seem to be following all of the instructions. I think you're ready to move on to Lesson 2 (or rather, the 250 Box Challenge). Good luck!

Next Steps:

Just focus on making your lines and ellipses more accurate, which will likely happen on its own as you continue through Drawabox. Though you can move on to Lesson 2, you should probably do the 250 Box Challenge first. The latter will best help you get your lines where you want them to be. And don't forget to keep up with these exercises as warmups before you draw other things!

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.
