Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes
9:20 PM, Friday May 6th 2022
Lesson 1 completed
Congratulations on finishing the lesson one! ????
I've seen all of the pages.
For reviewing I will go through, step by step, almost every exercise.
I suggest you to breath through, relax the shoulder a little bit and, that helped me, count the lines so the mind will be concentrated on the exercise but it will distract it for aiming perfection: a concentrated but relaxed mind will do better.
If you are struggling with the fluidity of the surface, put another paper on your working desk to allow the confidence of your arm to go smooth.
Ghosted lines : A little bit of tendency to curve lines but rather than that it's well done.
Ghosted planes :The lines are more confident so is a well done job
Ellipses : I group them together 'cause I see a little bit of trouble here: In terms of fitting them it's ok but or your not rotating the page enough to be comfortable or your not ghosting enough...
I will say the funnels are better.
Rough perspective : A bit of flop. I think that here your arm is tense and/or your aming too much to reach the right point so the lines suffer of wabbling and the perspective lines take their own way.
Rotated boxes : I will not comment much on that, it's a tough exercise itself and I think that the suggested exercise at the end will improve the perspective of the boxes.
Organic perspective : Last but not least, here the best one is the first row of the second page. You are rotating the boxes so that's good.
Overall good job.
Do the super imposed lines and the ellipses in planes for the warm-ups
Do just one more page of rough perspective to reinforce in particular the perspective view.
When you follow that, I think you can move on onto the next lesson.
I hope I helped you.
Good luck on the ongoing of the journey ????
1 page of rough perspective
Sorry for the extremely late reply! thank you for the advice, I tried to keep it in mind. Here is the revision of rough perspective.
Hi, this is my first time critiquing so hope it goes well!
superimposed lines are a bit wobbly, but the shorter ones and the curves look good. the ghosted lines are pretty good
the table has some overlap, and loop around two to three times like the lesson says. There's a cone in the funnels exercise but it's probably alright since it has the better ellipses of them all
The boxes are wobbly and all the lines don't meet near the VP. The roatating boxes are repeating a little but some are fine
You already got a critique but i wanted to try this out ^-^
Move on to the box challenge
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.
