I struggled a lot from the start until the end of this challenge. I'm open to suggestions and critics.

Thanks in advance for anyone who takes the time and effort to return feedback from it.

Congratulations! Finishing this challenge is no easy feat.

You seem to have gotten a really strong grasp on perspective, and while some of your boxes, even nearing the end, do have clear divergences, a lot of them are also really well done. In addition, your linework throughout is very confident.

One way to improve your convergences is to analyze the angles the lines make as they converge towards the vanishing point, as explained in this diagram: https://i.imgur.com/8PqQLE0.png. Doing so can be very helpful in preventing divergences, and in having all the lines in your boxes converge more consistently.

Next Steps:

I didn't really have much to say. I believe this was really well done! Your next step should be lesson 2

Thanks for the feedback!

I still find it very hard to do it all, linework, angles convergence, etc, so it's surprising you saying that. Nonetheless, I'll keep your advices in mind through the next lessons. Thank you again

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
