Hey nice job getting through lesson two!

Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Take the time to put your photos in the right order and right orientation, since your asking other people to review them when you upload them.

  2. On the sausages (both contour and ellipse) you are often neglecting to vary the degree (the minor axis size) as it goes across the shape, making them look less 3d. You may want to go back to that exercise and look more at the examples / common errors part to get a better sense and practice that as a warm up. Also, you don't need quite that many ellipses going across the shape--so many gets visually distracting and thus doesn't show the form well.

  3. Arrows: Work on getting smooth confident lines for them as a warm up. They are pretty shaky.

Hope those can be of some use to you. Good luck with your further studies!

Next Steps:

Move on to the next thing!

Alright, I'll keep that stuff in mind and I move forward and focus on the issues.

How to Draw by Scott Robertson

When it comes to technical drawing, there's no one better than Scott Robertson. I regularly use this book as a reference when eyeballing my perspective just won't cut it anymore. Need to figure out exactly how to rotate an object in 3D space? How to project a shape in perspective? Look no further.
