Congrats on finishing Lesson 1! I’ll be reviewing your submission and I hope you find my feedback helpful.
Most of your lines are smooth and executed with confidence. Good job.
There are a few lines that curved a bit, but it will get better as you practice.
- Most of your ghosted lines are smooth, straight and executed with confidence. Only a few lines wobble a bit. Well done.

Some of your lines wobble a bit like in this image(https://imgur.com/a/gp7SMUc), so be patient with the ghosting method and always draw from your shoulder.
Tables of Ellipse
You prioritized drawing smooth ellipses and executing them with confidence. You also kept your ellipses snugly next to each other and even vary them in degree, sizes, and orientation. Good job.
Some of your ellipses are not touching the top and bottom lines like in this image(https://imgur.com/a/C6pvqXk), you should strive to make your ellipses touch the top and bottom lines and try to be consistent with the degree and orientation of your ellipses in a section. (https://drawabox.com/lesson/1/12/step2).
Ellipses in Planes
You prioritized drawing smooth ellipses and executing them with confidence. Most of your ellipses are also touching the borders, and you draw through them 2-3 times. Well done.
You can add this to your warmups to improve accuracy.
Most of your ellipses are nicely aligned to the minor axis and cut the ellipses in 2 symmetrical halves. Good job.
Some of your ellipses are slightly slanted and not aligned to the minor axis like in this(https://imgur.com/a/Ip24WGE).
You can add this to your warmups to get used to aligning ellipses to the minor axis since this exercise will be important for lesson 2.
- Your boxes have no distortions and it looked like you understand the concept of vanishing points and horizon lines. Good job.
- You used one point perspective and your depth lines (those that are meant to converge towards the vanishing point) were converging with the horizon line. Good job.
- Your boxes’ corners are close to one another, you draw through the boxes, and they actually rotated. Well done.
- Your boxes are freely rotated in space and gets smaller the further away it gets. Well done.
Keep in mind that confidence takes precedence over accuracy.
Be patient with the exercises. Don't rush and take your time for as long as you need if you think it will help you understand the lessons.
Don’t correct incorrect lines. If you draw an incorrect line, don't draw another line on top of it; instead, keep the line and move on.
Remember the 50% rule. Draw something for yourself as well. This course will take a long time to finish, and you might lose motivation/burn out as a result.
Proceed to 250 box challenge.
