Hi, congratulations for finishing lesson 1 :)

Here's what I think about your work:


Most of your lines are confident and smooth, good job.

In the superimposed lines exercise some of the longer lines are a bit wobbly, it's important to not hesitate when drawing longer lines and treat them the same as short lines i.e. use ghosting method, put down a stroke quickly and draw from the shoulder. There is also fraying at both ends of the lines, take your time to place the pen carefully at the beginning of the line. Fraying at the end is normal at this stage however.


Your ellipses are also drawn smoothly and with confidence.

The table of ellipses is very neat, with most of the ellipses touching each other and the table without overlap. It would have been nice to have bigger sections of the table so you can practise drawing bigger/taller ellipses. Similarly you would have benefited from some larger planes in the ghosted planes exercise to practise drawing ellipses in a variety of sizes.


Again, your boxes could be bigger to have more variation in size. I think this is caused by you doing the exercises in landscape not portrait, restricting the height.

Don't repeat lines if they go off-course, as you do in the organic perspective exercise. Just keep the original line as if you meant to place it there and move on. Repeating lines makes your work look messier.

Otherwise, really good attempts on the rotated boxes and organic perspective. There are some perspective issues but you will improve during the 250 box challenge.

I hope you find this helpful :)

Next Steps:

Try the 250 boxes challenge next, good luck!

Thank you so much for taking the time to rate my homework ^_^

Ill take every recommendation that you gave me

ComicAd Network is an advertising platform built for comics and other creative projects to affordably get the word out about what they're making. We use them for our webcomic, and while they don't pay much, we wanted to put one of their ad slots here to help support other creatives.

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.
Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
