Hello Spikediesel, at first i want to say, slow a little bit down do not rush anything.

I would highly recommend to read the full instrunctions and watch the videos. It is really helpful to take you time and read carefully.

Super Imposed Lines

``You really did a great job on this excercise, more percission will come after some time.``

Ghosted Lines

``````The most lines look good, but i noticed that the lines are getting more wobbly if they are vertical. So remember to always rotate your page, to find the best drawing angle. Here is also a recent video of Uncomfortable on the Levels of Ghosting. This Video really helpt me out to get more accurate with ghosting.

Ghosted Planes

``The most planes are okay, but you could fit a couple more on this page.``

Tables of Ellipses

``Again slow down read carefully and don not rush the exercise. It is important to run 2 times over your ellipse. It will help you to get more accurate. Also remember to ghost your ellipses before you put your pen on the paper.``

Ellipses in Planes

``Read carefully, it is okay that you did another ghosted Planes exercise to draw your ellipses in, but as mentioned you should use your old ghosted Planes. https://drawabox.com/lesson/1/ellipsesinplanes But all in all i think you circles are getting better, but always draw a second time over them.``

Funnels

``They are nice. But also ghost every mark.``

Plotted Perspective

``Well done, i can not see any mistakes.``

Rough Perspective

``I think you understand the perspective in this exercise, but take a look at the example homework. https://drawabox.com/lesson/1/roughperspective dont extend your lines towards the vanishing point, extend them matching to the edge of your box. This will show you how far your guessed lines are away from the real vanishing point. ``

Rotated Boxes

``You got the Concept. But i notice that you run over some line again to clean them up. Only go over your lines to add lineweight. If you want to correct a line, you only make it more outstanding where you messed up.``

Organic Perspective

``The same as above think carfully about your lineweight and do not try to correct mistakes.``

I hope that my critic was helpful i really appreciate you effort in drawabox. (English is not my native message, i hope everything i said was understandable)

Next Steps:

I would suggest to revisit Tables of Ellipses , Ellipses are a great tool to draw in perspective and need allot of practice. And remember to take your time and slow down. Keep on drawing, i think with drawabox you will improve fast.

Have a nice Day :D

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

### The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
