It took the better part of a month, but it's finally done. Let me know what you think.

Looking good!

One thing I noticed is that the lines that are right next to each other (for ex. the lines for the edge closest to viewer and furthest to viewer) tend to converge a bit too quickly or actually end up diverging.

I believe these are mistakes you'll get rid of overtime.

One fun little tip from is to try and visualize how the box would look like after you draw the line you are currently planning out.

You boxes looked really good so I'd appreciate it if you looked at mine aswell :)

Next Steps:

I would say you are completely qualified to continue onwards with lesson two!

Good luck!

Thanks for the critique, Vaniilo! I actually moved on long long ago, in fact I just turned in my homework for Lesson 6 yesterday haha. I see what you mean about the lines quickly converging, I'm definitely sure it'll get better with enough practice. And I'll try that visualization trick for sure.

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.
