Hello Chuddy!

Overall, you have done a nice job!


Your lines are overall pretty confident with smooth and continuous flow. There are some that waver/wobble a bit as you draw towards the targeted point. To note, confidence should take precedence and be prioritized before accuracy. It’s ok that the lines aren’t fully accurate, as it is imperative to first develop the shoulder muscle memory to draw out smooth, confident strokes. So continue to ghost and execute every line with your shoulder. Essentially, a confident stroke that is slightly inaccurate is better than an accurate but wobbly line.

In the planes exercise, you do a great job of plotting (placing dots) down the corners. However, the bisecting lines are not always plotted out. The dots are a powerful tool to help establish the trajectory, and best yet you can move the dots before you commit and execute the line.


Ellipses are off to a fairly decent start with a good share of confident ellipses. There are some that wobble, and other times they turn sharply as you fit your ellipses in their allotted spaces. This causes the ellipses to be misshaped. Just as with lines, focus first on confident smooth strokes. Then work on maintaining its roundedness, and then accuracy last.

Ellipses in the funnel are generally aligned to the minor axis.

Nice job drawing through each ellipses appropriately 2-3 times (just a couple that were short of 2 times).


As you continue to go through your boxes, I notice your lines remain mostly confident, which is awesome! There is still a couple here and there that wobble, so just to reiterate because it’s so important – remember to ghost and draw through with your shoulder.

Also, some lines are repeated/corrected. No matter how tempting it is to correct an errant line, do not correct or repeat over it to correct it. To help prevent this, take your time with planning with dots. The great thing about dots is you don’t have to commit to the very first dot(s) you place. They can be moved around as you see fit before you commit to a line. Once you draw the line though, stick with what you have even if it’s wrong. With that said, however, I only really noticed this in your rough perspective exercise with no further evidence in the other exercises, so keep on that path!

Rough perspective

With the exception of a few lines, you’ve done a pretty nice job maintaining horizontal lines to be parallel to the horizon line, and vertical lines perpendicular to it.

Rotating boxes

First off, congratulations on getting through this exercise! The boxes are generally rotating along the vertical and horizontal axes, so nice job. The boxes are well neighbored to each other, and you are drawing through your forms, which is great.

Organic perspective

As the boxes get slightly smaller on the path, you’ve effectively conveyed a sense that they move slightly away from the viewer. In terms of perspective, you’re off to a good start. More notably in the smaller boxes, there are some sets of parallel lines that diverge away, making planes that are further away appear to get larger instead of slightly smaller. But no worries, you’ll have plenty of practice in the 250 Box Challenge!

With that said, congratulations on completing Lesson 1!
