Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes
7:52 PM, Monday October 24th 2022
new to drawing, any and all critique is appreciated :))
Hello and welcome to drawabox!
The lines aside from fraying seem to be arching a little (but that will be fixed with practice, the shorter lines are better but there is no wobbling in any of them which is great!
It looks like you sacrificed the straightness of the lines for accuracy, accuracy can be fixed with practice so try to keep your strokes confident like in the superimposed lines exercise.
Most of the ellipses are aligned to the axis. but they are overlapping a little and some of them (mostly the ones at the end) don’t touch the funnel wall
Rough Perspective Boxes
It’s great to see that the horizontal lines are parallel to the horizon, but you repeated some of the vertical lines (If you are having trouble drawing vertical lines then try rotating the page as much as necessary. Even if the lines don’t come out the way you wanted them to, treat them as if they are right, you’ll improve your accuracy in time.
This is a hard exercise so I won't say much about it. the boxes seem to be meeting back at the same vanishing point and some of them are too distant from each other.
The boxes are repeating so it doesn’t feel like it’s rotating alot. but once you start the 250 box challenge you will get better.
I couldn’t find the Ghosted Planes, Ellipses in planes, Table of Ellipses, or plotted perspective boxes on your album, did you upload them?
I hope this was helpful, you are doing a good job so far!

When it comes to technical drawing, there's no one better than Scott Robertson. I regularly use this book as a reference when eyeballing my perspective just won't cut it anymore. Need to figure out exactly how to rotate an object in 3D space? How to project a shape in perspective? Look no further.
