So good! You've got some mad skills. These are better than mine! Nothing to complain about here, you can move on! The boxes in the last exercise may look a little funky, but that's normal before making the challenge and learning how to truly draw a box.

Next Steps:

You're good to go. Go do the 250 box challenge!

Here's my critique:


  • Exercise: Superimposed Lines

    -nicely packed only little visible frying

  • Exercise: Ghosted Lines

    -lines are smooth and consistent, it rarely wobbles, rarely misses the points, and rarely arcs

  • Exercise: Ghosted Planes

    -you're planes are incomplete you have ignored bisecting some parts of the planes (mostly the middle) learning and getting used to bisecting this planes is important because this is a tool we will be applying to future lessons you're lines however are very crisp and mostly on the point.

Overall: You done a job with your line work they are smooth and consistent it rarely does mistakes but with the planes however I think you shouldn't have skipped bisecting the middle of the planes it is an integral tool in perspective and drawing ellipses


  • Exercise: Tables of Ellipses

    -you're ellipses are good it rarely goes out or misses the bounds

  • Exercise: Ellipses in Planes (needing revision)

    -now this is where you could see why the middle bisection is important those bisections are your guide to draw those

    ellipses correctly, there's visible struggle in your ellipses it's trying to find those bisections I want you to redo assignment so you could understand and use this as a tool in the future.

  • Exercise: Funnels

    -you're ellipses are good it rarely goes out or misses the bounds

Overall: Good job on the ellipses again it rarely misses the bounds I just think I need to make u redo the ellipses in planes because so you could see why Drawabox makes us bisect those planes


  • Exercise: Plotted Perspective

    -nice job on the plotted perspective

  • Exercise: Rough Perspective

    -good job in the rough perspective your perspective are not that far off however you did struggle a bit with drawing the

    insides of the box

  • Exercise: Rotated Boxes

    -the boxes that are most close to the perspective point are okay but the farther the boxes from the perspective point gets

    very wonky like it's a little way too off at times but forgivable you could make it up by doing the 250 box challenge after

    you do the revision I request

  • Exercise: Organic Perspective

    Not gonna lie I think you're boxes here are little rushed and seems to have little planning at all but I think I could also

    forgive you for that and recommend to do a better job in the 250 box challenge instead

Overall: Try being more patient and plan the boxes more thoroughly because you honestly have really good lines it's a waste to just rush those boxes so again do your best in the 250 box challenge

Conclusion: You done a fantastic job I simply just think that you missed the point of the ghosted planes and ellipses in planes exercises and you should be more thoughtful about the boxes you draw.

P.S. Sorry for giving requesting a revision

Next Steps:

I want you to repeat the Ellipses in Planes I want to see that you do the bisections justice and take advantage of those bisections for doing the ellipses. Thank you

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. 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.


This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
