No problem.

I'm glad you learned to appreciate the 50% rule and took your time, it's really important.

Overall these are a big improvement and represent what was being asked of you originally. There's still room for you to experiment by bringing your vanishing points in even closer but this is a great start. I'm sure as you continue to practice boxes in your warm ups you'll continue to see improvement so I'll be marking your submission complete.

Keep practicing boxes and previous exercises as warm ups and good luck in lesson 2.

Next Steps:

Move on to lesson 2.

This critique marks this lesson as complete.

Hey Tofu! I don't know if you will ever get noticed by this message, but for whatever reason I feel like to write you again just to point one thing that was the mother of all my troubles and it can be also the problem of other people like me.

When I was young I loved maths, but at some point the school changed the teacher and then I started to hate maths and learned it by memorising instead of understanding.

Well, time have past and all the knowledge I needed for the day was taught by the errors that everyone makes a couple of times.

Then the best thing happened, I started Drawabox and faced it like "It's just drawing" and that was my biggest flaw, It's all about understanding.

Why I struggled so much on my boxes ? Because I was just drawing boxes, I did not spend any time by thinking on the X,Y and Z; I was just aiming to make boxes on the paper, not to think of boxes on the space.

This last thing tricked my brain today since the last submission I only was doing some warm-ups and on those warm ups I did tons of Boxes.

So yes, the 250 boxes challenge is PERFECTLY TAILORED, the mindset of a box into the space ONLY will come if you spend the correct amount of time doing each and single box from 1 to 250 (or even more).

Well, I just wanted to share it with you, since you helped me tons, and without your critique probably I woulda have been doing "just boxes man" for months or even years.

Thank you again

It's very kind of you to go out of your way to write all this, and while it wasn't necessary it's very appreciated.

Thank you, I wish you the best of luck with the rest of the course.

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
