Hi all,

HI! i try to give you a review on the things i noticed :)

  1. The lines seem pretty good to me, in the longer ones you have to practice a little more because they don't follow the guideline very much.

  2. The lines are straight so they're fine, but you haven't tried very long lines.

  3. From the first to the second page of ellipses you can see a nice improvement. I think having viewed and marked the first page errors helped you :)

  4. The ellipses in the rectangles look okay to me, and the rectangles don't look bad either.

  5. On the Funnels it seems to me that you still have to work on it, especially on the growth of the thickness of the ellipses, because in some lines they all seem the same to me. I also had the same problems as you, it's not an easy exercise.

  6. The 2-point perspective is correct

  7. The intuitive perspective seems well done to me even if you could have tried to make the cubes further away from the vanishing point, in any case it seems that you have got them right enough :)

  8. Rotated boxes have some problems. the final shape should look like a circle while yours is more of a square. If you notice the cubes of the central lines they seem to have no difference in inclination and therefore follow the same vanishing point. the boxes in the corners should be more foreshortened because they give the impression that they are moving forward compared to the boxes they are surrounded by.I hope I have explained myself well.

  9. In the organic perspective we see an improvement from the first to the second page, perhaps it would be better to overlap the boxes less but these seem ok to me

I hope I've been useful!! By :)

LINES

there is a lot of fraying on the superimposed lines try to keep the lines following the path.

your ghosted lines were confidant, smooth and, ended point to point for the most part. this is what we want.

ellipses

for your table of ellipses try to stay inside of the box and trace your ellipses 2x.

ghosted planes - make sure your center lines all converge on a single point.

everything else look good!

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.
