Hey everyone, I resubmitted my homework since I lost access to my old account. If you could take a look and provide any feedback, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks a bunch!

Hello! I'll be critiquing your homework today

superimposed lines- solid

ghosted lines- solid, although I wish you experimented with a few longer lines

ghosted planes- many of the center lines are either overshooting or undershooting, but the lines are straight and confident and will improve with practice

tables of ellipses- solid, although some ellipses fall outside the table.

ellipses in planes- solid. some ellipses fall outside or don't touch all edges but it is clear that a good effort was made

funnels- solid. some ellipses overshoot the funnel. you submitted two pages but you only need to do one

plotted perspective- incomplete. you are supposed to split one page into three panels and do three different versions of the exercise. not one page. from what I can see, however, it is solid.

rough perspective- incomplete. you are supposed to split 2 pages into three parts, but instead you only did 2 full pages, meaning you only complete a third of the required amount. some lines miss the vanishing point by a lot but otherwise the work shown is solid

rotated boxes- solid

organic perspective- solid.

Next Steps:

while your work is solid, it is incomplete.

Plotted perspective- split one page into half ( portrait orientation split in half ) and repeat the plotted perspective on each side.

Rough perspective- split two pages into half (portrait orientation page split in half) and repeat the rough perspective exercise on each of the four halves.

place the vanishing points at different places to experiment.

good luck! you're almost there

Hello THELOLLYPOP! Thank you for critiquing my homework, Since I was working in digital I completely forgot that I have to split pages in three sections :P. I will throw some extra in the rogue perspective, since I have done enough of them.

I will try experimenting with longer ghosted Lines, and try to put the ellipses inside the tables. I will also try to maintain the ellipses more carefully in each excerice.

Take a look at the missing homework, and tell me if they are solid too, Thanks again for your help, I appreciate it.

solid.

However, for the 250 box challenge try to do the error checking and work physically rather than editing it digitally. just use some a4 sheets and fineliner for the whole exercise

Next Steps:

250 box challenge! good luck

Alright! Thanks again for taking time to critique my work.

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.

### 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.
