About Official Critique

If I pay for official critique but cannot afford it at some point and stop for a while, what happens to my lessons? Do I have to start from level 1 after I can afford the membership again, or can I start from the level I left before?

Official critique uses a credit system.

The moment you subscribe to a membership level in the Patreon page you will get charged for the respective amount. At the same time you will get the respective amount of credits for that membership level added in drawabox.com website. Credits expire after 2 months (I think) if not used.

You can check how much credits each lesson takes by going to that lesson, clicking on "Submit homework for review" and then clikcing the "Submit for Official Critique" button. That will show a new panel which shows your current number of credits and the amount of credits the official critique for the lesson costs.

Your progress thru the lessons is tracked thru your drawabox.com account and is independent of the Patreon membership. So you can subscribe to Patreon membership, immediately submit your homework for official critique and then cancel Patreon membership (note that by then you already have been charged for the month, and already got the credits in drawabox.com).

Ellipse Master Template

Ellipse Master Template

This recommendation is really just for those of you who've reached lesson 6 and onwards.

I haven't found the actual brand you buy to matter much, so you may want to shop around. This one is a "master" template, which will give you a broad range of ellipse degrees and sizes (this one ranges between 0.25 inches and 1.5 inches), and is a good place to start. You may end up finding that this range limits the kinds of ellipses you draw, forcing you to work within those bounds, but it may still be worth it as full sets of ellipse guides can run you quite a bit more, simply due to the sizes and degrees that need to be covered.

No matter which brand of ellipse guide you decide to pick up, make sure they have little markings for the minor axes.
