Hi Drego,

Similarly to the 250 box challenge, you'll be using line extensions to check your ellipse alignments (in the first section) as well as your perspective estimations (in the second section) and gradually improve them by iteration and using the extensions to self-critique.

It is necessary to go though many reps to develop an intuitive sense for how to draw a cylinder (or a square plane, for the boxed cylinders) in any orientation, proportion, or rate of foreshortening you choose. This will come in very handy for the hard surface constructions in lesson 6 and 7.

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

Cottonwood Arts Sketchbooks

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.
