Yo Elvenstar! your submission looks amazing keep up the good work mate. between congratulations on completing this challenge :)

Hi! this is Chiran and I'll try my best to provide solid and helpful analysis on your work.

before we jump into it, lets take a look at the abrreviations of (1,2 1nd 3 numbers)

1- The praises ( the job you did well in the challenge)

2- where you should keep an eye on

3- The work you can do to improve them in your warmups.

so yeah! lets start with the LINES;

1.

  • The lines looks confident and are drawn from the shoulder so good job on that.

  • Ghosting work is nicely done here ( meaning you did take time to plan and plot the starting and end dots of the lines before actually commiting to them)

2.

  • there's nothing much to nitpick about. the improvements in the line work can be seen the later stages your submission, so nice!

3.

  • continue to remind yourself to draw from shoulder and prioritize confident first always.

now moving on to THE BOXES:

1.

  • you did take time to construct and experiment variety of boxes in your work so good job on that

  • Checking your mistakes: your mistakes are slowly reducing in the challenge because of the line extention method (that is checking your mistakes by extending the correction lines away from the viewer) , because of this You got some pretty decent amount of convergence on the later boxes so good job on that too!

2.

  • Coverging and diverging problem is still present in the later stages of the challenge. its pretty common so no worries but keep an eye on them to and continue to practice in your warm ups.

3.

  • THE INNER CORNER PARADOX: In this challenge, we are estimating where our lines going to converge to a point. as we are humans, it is almost impossible to perfectly estimate where our lines will going to converge thereby resulting in an error. this error will continue to accumulate as we construct the box freely rotated in space. finally this accumulated error will be thrown to the back corner. So its pretty normal to have the inner back corner come out pretty off.

I want to take a look at this info here;https://i.imgur.com/8PqQLE0.png

In this image we can know that how each line will behave relating to the position from its neighbouring edges and the VP.So we can arrive at the conclusion that, If the distance between the internal edges and external edges gets reduce more and more they will eventually become parallel to one and another ( but keep in mind they will converge slightly at a negligable amount no matter what). Alternatively If the distance between the internal corner and the external grow more and more the internal line will also converge.

you can also try and start from the back corner if the box is narrower.https://imgur.com/a/DHlA3Jh.

if your aware of these notes, then you need to build mileage by including 1-2 boxes in your daily warm up routine. after that your boxes will get better and better.

try to experiment with your boxes and have fun with it. try to construct some bigger and extreme foreshortening boxes as well in your warm ups. experimentation, observation and results ( like in practicals :D) is always important for our growth.

*Moving on to the Bonus works ( this includes line weight, hatching )

1.

  • good job on utilizing the hatching and line weight ( applied on the boxes silhouette) tool to create a solid box and continue to use them in your warm ups.

  • hatching lines and super imposed lines are pre planned before execution so great job mate!

2.

  • In my opinion it is best to avoid using whiteners to cover the mistakes. keep the mistakes as it is and try to move on thinking them as it is coreect and take notes of it to avoid in the future

3.

even for hatching and line weights we should continue treat every lines with respect How do we treat with respect?- first we should plan where our lines will start and end by plotting the points and ghost them several times ( hovering in motion) and draw them with confidence and from the shoulder.

MY POINT OF VIEW:

overall this was the solid submission!

we all know, this challenge was very intimidating because of constructing 250 boxes arbitrarily rotated in 3d and yet you did a great job by keeping persistent till the end with lots of effort, focus, energy and time so hats off for that. Be proud of What you have Accomplished

" A BOX A DAY KEEP OUR ISSUES AWAY"

Yes, We've come to the end of this feedback. overall, this was a solid submission Your submission reveals that you did take time to read through the lesson materials, followed the instructions and executed to your best of your ability. so that's good job!..thank you for submitting your assignment to the community.I'm confident that you will improve much better In the future by keeping the mistakes in mind in your Warm ups.

so yeah I'm allowing you to move on to Lesson 2 by marking the challenge as Complete.

Yippee ! we have completed this challenge. congratulations!. I hope this feedback helps . Have a wonderful artistic journey. keep goin. I'm awaiting to see your Progress.

Thank you ELVENSTAR!

Next Steps:

  1. THE WARM UPS ( don't forget about the lesson 1 :D)

  2. yeah move on to lesson 2

  3. keep in mind the mistakes as well as the good jobs and move forwards!

Thank you. have a nice day ;)

Thank you very much for your in-depth and thorough review! Made my day! :3 I will keep in mind the things you pointed out and move forward. Again, thanks so much for taking the time to review a billion boxes lol. Hope you have a great day! :)

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
