community critique

3:14 PM, Thursday May 18th 2023

It's been ten days since I posted my 250 box challenge assignment. I know that it isn't guaranteed to get a critique by the community and that it can take weeks/months. My question is, should I move onto lesson 2 or keep waiting for a critique? I have been drawing, just haven't moved forward with lesson 2.

Hi Melos,

If you want to guarantee critiques, you can check out the unofficial critique exchange program introduced here.

Join our Discord server and read the pinned message in the channel there to see how it works. :)

I actually am a part of the server but somehow never noticed that channel?? Anyhow, I already found it, thanks for sending me there!

Same. I thought the entire discord server was the exchange program and I wasn't aware of the actual program until I'm further into the course

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.
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.
