You did a very good job on the lines section. In the ellipses in planes exercise, the ellipses are supposed to touch a little bit all 4 lines in a plane and even if it looks flat on the page there is still some perspective action there that I dont see in your homework but you'll improve your eye in time. In the rough perspective some lines are a bit wobbly.

In the rotated boxes and organic exercises you understood which plane is in front of the other ones so thats very good and important for future lessons.You did so good overall!

I would say continue to lesson 2 and do your best to draw from the shoulder. It takes time to build up muscle memory some days youll have very good lines some day not and it really holds on practice and patience.Good luck :)

Wow, I did not expect a critique to come in so soon. Thanks very much for having a look at my work. I appreciate the feedback and I'm practicing hard to draw from my shoulder. Your comment really motivates me. I'm doing the 250 Boxes Challenge before I move on to Lesson 2 and will remember your comments as I go through the exercises :)

Hi Salty!

Good job completing lesson 1, but even tho the other critique said that you can move to lesson 2, I'll let you know that you must do the 250 box challenge before moving to that lesson.

Unfortunately I hadn't the chance to see this submission sooner, but if you already started lesson 2 I suggest you to pause it until you completed the challenge. Good luck!


I didn't realize you actually answered the review with the correct next step. Nevermind then :D

Next Steps:

250 box challenge

Color and Light by James Gurney

Color and Light by James Gurney

Some of you may remember James Gurney's breathtaking work in the Dinotopia series. This is easily my favourite book on the topic of colour and light, and comes highly recommended by any artist worth their salt. While it speaks from the perspective of a traditional painter, the information in this book is invaluable for work in any medium.
