Hello Embrah, I will be reviewing your lesson today.

LINES

Super Imposed Lines - Your superimposed lines are looking good, though there is a little bit of fraying in the beginning.

Ghosted Lines - You've done well in this as well. You've ghosted enough that you've accurately started at the starting point and even reached very close to the endpoint as well. There is a sligght bit of wobbling, but that'll improve over time.

Ghosted Planes - Good job here as well. As with the previous exercise, you've drawn confident strokes and ghosted enough to ensure that most lines start at the starting point and end on or close to the endpoint to make the planes.

ELLIPSES

Tables of Ellipses - Your table looks good, where most of the ellipses fit snugly, though there is some extra space that still could have used some filling in, while some of your ellipses are not fully marked either. Remember to ghost properly and then commit to the mark.

Ellipses in Planes - Your ellipses in planes are quite good too, though some of the ellipses are not touching all four ends of the plane. Ghosting properly should minimize this issue effectively.

Funnels - Good job on your funnels. You're ellipses look good with how confident they are. There is a relative symmetry with the minor axis cutting the ellipses, though some of them are not touching.

BOXES

Plotted Perspective - Everything looks good here.

Rough Perspective - Good job on keeping the lines either perpendicular or horizontal to the horizon, however, I see no line correction method and thus this is incomplete. Be sure to include that in before you submit.

Rotated Boxes - Impressive work. Some students really struggle with this exercise, and it is clear that your spatial awareness is good as you've rotated your boxes quite accurately while maintaining quite a close distance with each corner of the boxes. A little bit of curving and wobblyy lines can be seen here too in your line work but I'm sure this will improve over practice.

Organic Perspective - Your organic boxes look good. You've kept a good sense of rotation as well as perspective here too.

Overall this is a strong submission, just do not forget some steps when you are doing your homework.

Next Steps:

I would recommend doing 1 page of Rough Perspective again due to its incompleteness.

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Hi, I am so sorry that I am very late and for not submitting the homework correctly. https://imgur.com/a/78YAXI7

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something we've used ourselves, or know to be of impeccable quality. If you're interested, here is a full list.

### Staedtler Pigment Liners

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
