Hi Tem,

Good work! Here is a short critique (other members of the community can developp if they wish...):

Lines

You've done a great work, precise and confident.

Ellipses

Great job but you have to increase your acuracy. You may perhaps slow down a little and especially don't forget to ghost before drawing it's very useful! Remember than each side must be tangent to the ellipse.

Boxes

Nice work that will have the opportunity to improve during the 250 box challenge...

Very nice try on rotated boxes!

Next Steps:

Next the 250 box challenge!

Remember to repeat lines and ellipses exercises during warmup during this challenge!

You may need to focus on ghosting more before drawing your ellipses.

Remember that the main thing is to draw confident lines: If it's wobbly, speed up! If it's not accurate, slow down! If you struggle at it, ghost more! ;-)

Congratulations! :-)

Steven Zapata's Secrets of Shading

Some of you will have noticed that Drawabox doesn't teach shading at all. Rather, we focus on the understanding of the spatial relationships between the form we're drawing, which feeds into how one might go about applying shading. When it comes time to learn about shading though, you're going to want to learn it from Steven Zapata, hands down.

Take a look at his portfolio, and you'll immediately see why.
