I had trouble doing the boxes and ellipses.

Hi, here is my critique:

Ghosted lines: Looking a little wobbly. You should prioritize confident lines over accuracy, so try to do them a little faster so that they are more even, even if you miss more often.

Ellipses are looking good mostly, however on the funnels, remember that the centerline of the funnel should cut each circle in half. Try to keep that in mind.

Your boxes look ok, though they have the same problem with wobbly lines, as mentioned. Not all of your lines converge towards the vanishing point, but this isn't easy and you will get more practice when doing the 250 box challenge.

Good job and good luck going forwards!

Next Steps:

250 box challenge. Keep practising lesson 1 in your warmups.

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. Technically speaking, any brush pen of reasonable quality will do, but I'm especially fond of this one. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.
