Hello! I'll looking over your work and give you some critique to help you

For superimposed lines, there's one or two lines with some slight fraying on the starting point. Take your time and be patient to place your pen on the starting point to avoid fraying on both sides

Ghosting lines and planes have the same problem in that some miss both points. Same thing as above, take your time to line up the pen onto the starting point before making a mark on the paper. There is some slight arcing on the lines so you will need to be a bit conscious with drawing the line in the opposite direction. Don't worry if you do not hit the end point, the important thing first and foremost is creating a consistent, confiddent straight line. The accuracy of hitting the end points will come eventually.

Ellipses. Don't make overlap one ellipse with another. Make sure they just fit inbetween the ellipses and within the table in each ellipse, take your time with ghosting them first and maintain a consistent, even shape.For ellipses on planes, lots of them are very uneven and even some of them are wobbly, especially seen in the funnels. Again, make sure you ghost them before doing it, don't worry if it isn't good, ellipses are one of the harder things to pull off nicely.

Plotted perspective looks fine though I noted there's an attempt to erase your mistakes by overlapping it with a pencil and I recommend you to not correct your mistakes or hide it in that way in the future.

Rough perspective, the lines are super wobbly, a very different look compared to your lines and planes exercise, don't just guesstimate on where and be aware on how each line should behave. You also forgot to add extension lines to intersect them with the horizon line in the second page of the exercise. And finally, do not superimpose or correct your lines for a lot of those. Again, ghost properly, don't be afraid to rotate your page to keep a consistently straight line throughout the exrercise.

The rotated boxes and organic perspective have a lot of superimposing lines that gives a very fuzzy, heavy texture-like to it, something that I discourage you from doing it in the future to hide your mistakes. Also to add, make sure you draw through all of your boxes in the rotated box. The same applies as mentioned above in which you need to practice ghosting properly. I will point out that you did the rotation decently for the rotated boxes and that you did a job well done with lesson 1 overall.

Next Steps:

I would like to see 1 more page of rough perspective, complete with the extension lines along with another page of rotated boxes. You are doing very well with the exercises but I would like to see these without the lines being so heavily superimposed and clearly drawn on top of another to hide your mistakes. Keep in mind you're supposed to draw a line once and be sure to ghost everytime. Keep up the good work!

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Is these good enough?

Yep, there's still lots of arcing and wobble but that can be improved over time. You did a swell job with it, move onto the 250 box challenge. Best of luck!

Hi Tylerkoh!

I would like to check your submission but the link is not working.

If I agree with Avidania's current review it will get a total of 2 agreements and that will officially mark your submission as complete, and you would get your badge, but I need to see the actual homework first.

Reply to this comment with a working link and I'll check it out. Cheers!

Tho it looks like one user randomly agreed with the review without seeing your work, so you got your completion anyway.

Yeah, haha

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

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.
