How can I get a community review?

7:05 AM, Saturday October 10th 2020

Hi.

I post my Lesson 1 Homework and 250 Box Challenge for the community review but I haven't recvieved and feedback for one month. I post it on Reddit and ask for help from the Discord group but so for no one answerd.

I am already started doing lesson 2 Homeworks and I am about to finish them. My concern is if my Lesson1 Homework isn't good, then should I have to start Lesson 1 and Lesson 2 all over again? What should I do to get a feedback?

Hey, this unfortunately happens sometimes.

Because there are more submissions than people critiquing them.

I can take a look at them later today. It is super important to get critique and feedback after you've finished one Lesson. Otherwise there might be a chance that you miss out important aspects and keep repeating the same mistakes without even noticing them.

After my critique(s) it would be great if you would try to critique some (Lesson 1 and 250 Box challenge) submissions on your own. I will link you to a basic critique guide written by "Elodin" if you don't fell comfortable critiquing just now it might help you out.

See ya later ;)

Thank you for your kind answer. After the critique, I will be glad to do it for someone else since it is a great tool of learning as it is said in lessons here.

This goes for you and for everyone too.

For each 5 critiques of a lesson you've had critiqued and completed you do I'll critique one of your submissions. You can reply to this message when you're ready or just ping me on discord.

Here are 3 guides on critiquing lesson 1,2 and box challenge, give them a read if you feel you aren't ready:

(If It's lesson 1 the one you want to have critiqued you can reply/ping me after a week or so of waiting, I'll go over them)

Thank you for answering my question. I have been doing critiques with the help of the guidelines as you suggested, and finally finished my fifth review. I would be glad if you can look at my Box Challenge.

If I'm correct, you said if someone's been waiting for Lesson 1 to be critiqued for more than a week then you'll give theirs a critique if they reply to message, right? Well, if so, I submitted my Lesson 1 exercises on October 7th and in addition I've also done 2 reviews so far on other Lesson 1 exercises. I'd highly appreciate it if you critique my work; and if you need to do more reviews before doing so, I'd be glad to. Thanks in advance.

Hi Elodin! It has been more than a year since you posted this comment but I also want my homework 1 to be reviewed so I can continue my learning. Are you still doing homework 1 reviews for people who have been waiting for more than a week? If so, do you mind if you could please review my homework 1? I would really appreciate it. I would also like to apologize in advance though, my homework is done in a light grey grid lined book. I don't have access to blank A4 paper needed so I used the book as the ink would at least be distinguishable from the lines. Thanks in advance

I updated the system a little bit. You can check it out if you join the discord on the #critique-exchange channel, join and take a look at the pinned message, all is explained there.

Hello I just finished my Lesson 1 and I am doing reviews about them. I'll can't review your work in 250 box challenge as I am only starting in it. I know the gist of the lessons but my critique will not be spectacular. I hope that it will help. If you have questions just DM me in

It will help great deal. I already got one critique and it explained which parts I seemed to lack and I will improve those parts with warm ups as I go on.

That's good to hear good luck on you journey!

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.
Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens

Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
