Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes
1:06 AM, Monday September 7th 2020
Hi ! This is my homework for Lesson 1. Would appreciate any feedback !
Hey! It's cool to see your progress from the very first exercise (just the lines) to the planes; it looks like maybe you felt more confident with drawing lines quickly and steadily by the time you got to that one, which is great.
It looks as though drawing ellipses comes more naturally to you than straight lines (the opposite of me!); your ellipses feel loose and smooth, but you seem less sure for the perspective/box exercises. Your actual non-guided perspective exercise has some really good guesses for vanishing points, but it seems like you were focusing more on getting the perspective right than drawing strong, confident lines (not that it's right or wrong to focus more on one or the other). I am sure the line confidence will come with time.
I agree with basically anything that was said, your lines are not too bad, a little wobbly here and there (confidence with time and practice will help) and the ellipses seems good.
In addition I'd like to add a little more on the rotating boxes.
The bases need to be more consistent in size and planned better, paying more attention to the others surrounding them.
The corner ones are most difficult ones, I'd paying particular attention to those...
Ghosting more calmly the lines would surely help to get more straighter lines.
Try to vary hatching angle to make easier to distinguish better the various faces/boxes.
If you have some "time to waste" you could probably try and redo it. In general you're doing pretty good , everyone has problems with rotating boxes :
Thanks so much guys ! I really appreciate your comments. I've already tried ghosting more calmy and drawing lines more confidently and can certainly see the difference.
