Hi Fonzos,

I hope you are well. It's good that you recognize your tendency of being scared of failure. You will just have to keep challenging that feeling and getting past it, because it will never stop and you will feel prouder and prouder as you get past it. Keep drawing for fun too and don't be so cruel to yourself while you make mistakes.

Your exercises look good, I did want you to extend the lines back for the first "Plotted Perspective" vanishing points exercise, as the instructions state to make sure to draw the lines back. You can see that you hadn't drawn the lines back to the vanishing point. It will help you internalize how to draw the lines for later when you start the 250 box challenge.

After that I think you can mark the lesson complete.

Next Steps:

Correct your "Plotted Perspective" exercise to draw the lines back to the vanishing points, as shown in the lesson exercise.

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Hi MAHA, thanks for reading my post and not just looking at my drawings.

You're right, I must continue to challenge possible failure. I will try to work on it while I continue with the various exercises and try to put myself more at stake, who knows if it will not be able to unlock me.

Unfortunately, drawing for fun is the thing that is more difficult for me right now ... but I hope that the exercises on this site will help me remember how have fun (as well as being frustrated, hehe).

You are right! I forgot to draw the perspective lines. Tomorrow I will resume the prosective exercises and try to put them on purpose. Fortunately they are easy enough, it won't take long.

Thanks for pointing that out

But how are you doing? All right in your part?

(if my english is "strange" is cause I use google translate)

Hey Fonzos,

actually your english sounds good even though it's from Google Translate! I can understand just fine lol.

I am well, luckily still working during the coronavirus crisis and I am financially stable during this time too. Hope the same for you.

Next Steps:

After you finish the revisions, go ahead and move on to the 250 box challenge.

Google does a good job with translations, then.

I'm glad you are fine and are able to continue working. Right now I am stuck at home but fortunately, thanks to my family, I get along. Of course I would prefer to get active and do something, but for now I must necessarily stay still. But luckily I'm fine too, thanks for your interest.

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
