Hey, I’ll be grading your homework today. For the most part, you did really well.

Your ghosted lines have a bit of arcing, but not a ton. Nothing that can’t be fixed by just being concision of it and purposefully arcing in the opposite direction a bit to straighten them out.

Your ghosted planes look good too. My only criticism is that a few of your lines noticeably stop short for some reason. Probably pulling up your pencil a too early, but not bad.

Your tables of ellipses are nice too, as do your ellipses in the ghosted planes.

Your funnels are done well too, with them touching the top and bottom pretty consistently and being divided on half pretty well.

Plotted perspective looks great, and your rough perspective looks good too, with your horizontal lines being parallel with the horizon for the most part and your other lines being perpendicular with it as well.

Your rotated boxes are a bit hard to see, but the corners are close together as they’re supposed to be, which is awesome.

And lastly, your organic perspective also holds up well too.

The only thing I recommend you do again is your superimposed lines because there’s a decent mount of fraying on both sides. As a tip, make sure your pencil is really on the point before drawing your line again.

But besides that, you’ve done really well.

Next Steps:

Re-do the superimposed lines, keeping in mind that they’re only supposed to fray on one side, and then you can move on to the 250 box challenge

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

And thank you again!

No problem. This set of lines looks better with A LOT less fraying. You did great

Next Steps:

Move on to the 250 box challenge. Good luck

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. 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.


This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
