Strong start to the homework with the line assignments. I don't see any glaring issues. However, I notice the ghosted lines seem to taper at the end. Try to maintain the same line weight for similar assignments going forward.


The ellipses look good too. Just remember to draw through them two full times. A few shapes in the first page in "Table of Ellipses" aren't completely finished.


Your boxes are solid! However, the Organic Perspective page could use more dramatic foreshortening. Right now, it appears cluttered because many of the boxes are close together. Keep space and distance in mind for your next assignments.

Next Steps:

Nice work! Use these exercises as warmups for the following lessons. Apply the feedback here to the 250 Box Challenge.

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
