Looks good, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Though, these are the main concerns that come to mind:

  • Rough perspective - the red lines indicated that you nailed all the VP exactly - did you use the help of a ruler to get the line right or you were just good at it (or took your time to carefully get the VP correct)?

  • Organic Perspective - sometimes all 3 VPs for the odd box seemed to be at infinity or extremely far away.

250 box challenge

Yes, it seems he used a ruler to make the projections. Some black lines don't match them. I believe it's ok, but focus on not doing it on the 250 box challenge to really improve your guessing skill and perception of space.

First of all Thank you for the critique

And yes I think I misunderstood the purpose of the red lines and used a ruler.

I thought it should be done with the ruler to see the difference between my lines (the box ) and right lines (red line) , I know is seems stupid know that I think about it.

I'll try not to do this in the future :-) ,

Thank you and appreciate you taking the time .

Heyo!

Overall good work ?

Lines

  • Your linework was mostly confident and smooth.

  • Little to no signs of arching, no consistent cases of fraying and no repeated lines, so great job!

Ellipses

  • Your exercises were done nicely indicating that you understood the exercise at its core.

  • There were little to no signs of overlapping, most of the ellipses were done 2-3 times per instructions and stayed within its area, nice!

Boxes

  • You stayed true to the ghosting method to construct your boxes, well done!

  • It would seem that you misunderstood the Rough Perspective exercise, correct me if I'm wrong but it looks as though you used a ruler/straight edge to "plot" your lines back to the vanishing point similar to the Plotted Perspective exercise.

For clarity, in the Rough Perspective exercise, you are only to use a ruler to plot the lines of your boxes back to the vanishing point, AFTER you've construct your boxes (by ghosting).

Overall as I stated previously you've done good work! I would recommend redoing the Rough Perspective exercise just to re-introduce you to its methods and be able to see how your eyes tend to assume how far/close the vanishing point is/isn't and then you may move on to the 250 Boxes Challenge. ( ??? )?

Next Steps:

2 Pages of Rough Perspective

250 Box Challenge

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

First of all Thank you for the critique

And yes I think I misunderstood the purpose of the red lines and used a ruler.

Though I only used it with red lines, and I used no ruler and only the ghosting method for the box .

I thought it should be done with the ruler to see the difference between my lines (the box ) and right lines (red line) , I know is seems stupid know that I think about it.

Great work, the boxes in the top right quadrant of the rotated boxes exercise look bit off tho

Next Steps:

Lesson 2 :)

And maybe the 250 boxes challenge if you like

The Art of Brom

The Art of Brom

Here we're getting into the subjective - Gerald Brom is one of my favourite artists (and a pretty fantastic novelist!). That said, if I recommended art books just for the beautiful images contained therein, my list of recommendations would be miles long.

The reason this book is close to my heart is because of its introduction, where Brom goes explains in detail just how he went from being an army brat to one of the most highly respected dark fantasy artists in the world today. I believe that one's work is flavoured by their life's experiences, and discovering the roots from which other artists hail can help give one perspective on their own beginnings, and perhaps their eventual destination as well.
