I think you did a very good job with your boxes. I can tell that you really tried from all of the scrapped boxes that you made, but I also think that it is something that is holding you back.

In addition to the many scrapped boxes, I noticed that many of your lines were redrawn and others were wobbly. You seem to have noticed this as well. Given what I see, I believe that your biggest problem is drawing confident lines. Remember to draw straight and smooth, and that a confident line is always better than an accurate one. Also do not correct lines by redrawing them, as this will make your drawing messier.

You did a good job on this challenge overall, especially in creating dynamic orientations. I think that you are ready to move on to the next lesson.

Thank you!

I will check if I will add from time to time a warm up, were I train the straight, confident lines beside of the normal lessons.

I think some of the very woobly lines were created when I tried to make the lines thicker, as required by the task (Line weight)... I often painted over an existing line several times to get the line weight... resulting in more messy and woobly lines

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.
