I completed this challenge back in August of 2022, but never uploaded it because I was 2 cool 4 critique.

Now that I started the course over, I was advised to do 50 boxes instead of all 250 again. The above link goes to those 50 boxes, and the original ones can be found here.

Nowadays the box challenge is divided into three parts. I drew the first 10 boxes following the first part's rules, next 10 with the second part's rules, and the remaining 30 with the third part's.

Thanks in advance for the critique!

hello, i'll be critiquing your homework

the boxes generally appear to get better as you went on,

there were some divergences but they appear less and less often as you moved on

a small thing i notice is that im not sure if you added line weight to the silhouette of each box, it's hard to tell

but mostly i think that you can move on

Next Steps:

Ellipse Master Template

Ellipse Master Template

This recommendation is really just for those of you who've reached lesson 6 and onwards.

I haven't found the actual brand you buy to matter much, so you may want to shop around. This one is a "master" template, which will give you a broad range of ellipse degrees and sizes (this one ranges between 0.25 inches and 1.5 inches), and is a good place to start. You may end up finding that this range limits the kinds of ellipses you draw, forcing you to work within those bounds, but it may still be worth it as full sets of ellipse guides can run you quite a bit more, simply due to the sizes and degrees that need to be covered.

No matter which brand of ellipse guide you decide to pick up, make sure they have little markings for the minor axes.
