Lesson 2: Contour Lines, Texture and Construction

I subconsciously know I made mistakes but I can't really figure them out
I hope you guys will help me out
I am JustCuteGirlz and I will be doing your critique for you today. I will be going from exercise to exercise give you advice or things that I think need some improvement.
2 Pages of Organic Arrows
These were very good and show you understand depth
Your sausage forms were very well formed. One thing i noticed was your elipses were a little wabbley. Do some elipse table practices during your warm ups to bring back those confident elipses. Do so will help increase the 3-D effect of your sausage forms.
Texture Analysis/ Dissections
With the texture analysis and dissections you need more of a range of values. Compare the image below with your own texture analysis.
To the far left there is nothing but black that then bleeds into the texture. Yours however does not do that and for the dissections I would of like to see that increased range as well.
Your form intersections look good however I did notice that some of your boxes do not have 3 point perspective. Think back to when you were doing the 250 box challenge and the methods you used there to draw your boxes to make sure your sides end at their correct vanishing point.
Make sure your shadows follow the contours of not only that shape that casts them, but the form they are on top of too.

Overall very good job on these. In my opinion, I think you are ready to move on to plant construction (lesson 3)
Table Elipse exercise during warm ups
So if you recall you should be doing a warm up of 15 minutes by selecting 3 of the previous exercises that you have done of prior lessons.
Here's a link to that section if you need a refresher on the specifics: https://drawabox.com/lesson/0/3/warmups
As the system doesn't currently allow me to respond to a report directly, I must state here that I disagree with what you stated in your report, and feel that you may be overestimating what you should be expecting from free community feedback, which as you must remember is driven entirely by peoples' good will and willingness to give others' feedback and advice.
The critique you received discussed each major section, identified things you did well, and areas for you to work on. The "Mark as Unhelpful" option is reserved for cases where people have put in no effort, and have only provided empty platitudes.
In the future, keep in mind that the person giving you feedback is not receiving anything from you in return, and so you can only expect so much.
Sorry for the inconvenience, I will keep that factor in mind from now on ????????
These are my favourite sketchbooks, hands down. Move aside Moleskine, you overpriced gimmick. These sketchbooks are made by entertainment industry professionals down in Los Angeles, with concept artists in mind. They have a wide variety of sketchbooks, such as toned sketchbooks that let you work both towards light and towards dark values, as well as books where every second sheet is a semitransparent vellum.
