Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes
6:30 PM, Saturday February 13th 2021
Hey! Completed lesson 1 and now its time for some critiques.
Here are some of my own notes:
-Super imposed lines: Definitely need more practice. I think i was doing them too fast and not planning enough. Also noticed that the second line i made was usually very off but the ones after were pretty decent.
-Ghosted lines: Did them too fast and didn't plan enough. My brain was also getting in the way and i concentrated too much on hitting the mark. Need to work on getting rid of the curving as well.
-Ghosted planes: Again concentrating too much on hitting the mark and not on getting a straight line. Lots of curves on the lines because my priorities were off.
-tables of ellipses: These gave me a lot of trouble. Did them too fast and didn't ghost enough. I think the turning point was kind of hard to get right and they ended up looking kinda bad.
-Ellipses in planes: Found it hard to hit all the edges. Didn't ghost enough. Should have taken my time.
-Funnels: Mostly the same stuff from table of ellipses. Some of the middle ones are too big.
-Plotted perspective: Not a lot to say about this one. The more lines i made the harder it was to know where exactly the VP was but other than that nothing to say really.
-Rough perspective: Since i have trouble making straight lines this was kind of hard. Also when doing the back of the box i focused too much on getting each individual line to the VP because some of them failed the box ended up looking like crap. I think i should have just done the lines based on the first line i made.
-Rotated box: Hard. The size of my boxes were really off. Don't know why one of them is really long. Should maybe have used the adjacent boxes more as a reference for my lines.
-Organic perspective: The boxes are kinda samey and they become too small too fast. Some of the boxes ended up too long as well.
All in all im pretty proud that i even managed to do all this. Just gotta stay motivated now and concentrate more.
Thank you for your feedback in advance! Im off to make a few boxes.
