250 Cylinder Challenge
3:12 PM, Friday June 19th 2020
It has been a rough time lately, with my arms a little bit sensible (but Improving) and having to take care about other aspects of my life it took me way more than I anticipated. I would try to do 2 cylinders per day, but sometimes my arms would be just too tired or I would be so busy that sometimes I would break the habit and days of not doing any cylinders would pass by (maybe a few weeks at times).
I read the lesson every 50 Cylinders but with how slow I made them, sometimes I forgot some details. Even by 200 cylinders I would notice a little detail I didn't notice before, such as the middle line you draw when constructing a cylinder within a box, I didn't notice the line went far beyond the center of the planes just like the normal cylinders that you over extend the first line (minor axis).
Because of the uneven pace I took, sometimes my ellipses would improved and sometimes they would get worse despite of ghosting constantly I often fot kind of bubbly ellipses that would have and ambiguos minor and major axis :(
I had trouble really finding the minor axis, I feel that a lot of the time I wasn't that off, but that gave me the feeling that maybe I was fooling myself, so I started defining the middle of the ellipse with a ruler and later on I found that if I traced the major axis, I could look up for the symmetry on both axis (separating the ellipse into 4 equally sized fractions the closest I could) making it more apparent to figure out if I was spotting the minor axis.
When drawing cylinders within a box, sometimes I feel that I didn't get much of a perfect squared plane, so placing the ellpse trying to respect the three or two vanishing points was kind of tricky. I would normally draw boxes with a very extreme perspective just out of habit just to remember that I had to be careful with those since it was harder to get the feeling that they were actually squares.
Overall I think I did fine by the end, there's room for improvement such as precision with drawing ellipses and perception of the real minor axis. But what do you think about?
Thanks for the lessons and thanks for the feedback!
