After first lesson and challenge
1:14 AM, Tuesday June 15th 2021
Hi, good Drawabox community!
Please I was wondering if anyone could offer me any advice? I finished Lesson 1 and the 250 Box Challenge, but I feel like my abilities in my other art haven’t gotten better: in my anatomy drawing, my lines don’t seem any smoother or more accurate, and my favorite thing to draw from real-life reference—old, ornamental tombstones—don’t seem any better either. I tried drawing one yesterday from the front with a little bit of the side showing, and after 250 boxes, I just couldn’t get the perspective even close; I was looking at it trying to get the z lines that were receding away from me unto the flat page, and I just couldn’t figure out their angle to save my neck despite it being right there in front of my face. I’m just really discouraged. I’m not trying to detract from the value of the course at all, or even these first lesson and challenge. I’m just wondering if I’m doing something wrong, and if there’s a way I can do better going forward to get more out of marvelous Drawabox.
Thank you all so much and take care.
