Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes
11:30 PM, Friday November 13th 2020
Lesson 1 done! I'd love any critique, feedback, or advice on how to improve moving forward. Thank you! :)
Superimposed Lines: Looking really good
Ghosted Lines: You have no pages for ghosted lines, please attach.
Ghosted Planes: If you scanned your pages before drawing ellipses please attach.
Ellipses in Planes: Your ellipses look quite confident and smooth, they will be better if you keep practicing.
Tables of Ellipses: You did not draw through some of them, and it looks like you need more time to really feel your shoulder motion. But I like where you are going.
Funnels of Ellipses: Pay attention to how your ellipses get narrower in the middle and gets wider as you get away from the center, this information will be really helpful in further lessons.
Plotted perspective: You don't have the page. Please attach.
Rough perspective: Clean lines and accurate perspective
Rotated Boxes: You don't have it either.
Organic Perspective: Clean and confident lines
You have 5 missing pages, you need to attach them somehow.
1 filled page of Ghosted Lines
2 filled page of Ghosted Planes
1 page of Rotated Boxes
1 page of Plotted Perspective
A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.
In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
