Hello and congrats on completing lesson one. I’ll be taking a look at your submission today. Starting with your superimposed lines these are off to a fine start. You are keeping a clearly defined starting point with all of your wavering at the opposite end. Your ghosted lines and planes turned out well. You are using the ghosting method to good effect to get confident linework with a pretty decent deal of accuracy that will get better and better with practice.

Your tables of ellipses are coming along pretty good. You are doing a good job drawing through your ellipses and focusing on consistent smooth ellipse shapes and I can already see improvements from the first to second page. This is carried over nicely into your ellipses in planes. It’s great that you aren’t overly concerned with accuracy and are instead focused on getting smooth ellipse shapes. Although accuracy is our end goal it can’t really be forced and tends to come with mileage and consistent practice more than anything else. Your ellipses in funnels are having some issues with tilting off the minor axis. https://drawabox.com/lesson/1/13/notaligned This is something you should always start considering when drawing your ellipses. Your ellipses are off to a nice start and I’m not seeing any really bad habits forming. There’s still plenty of room for improvement when it comes to accuracy and consistency of shape so keep practicing these during your warmups.

The plotted perspective looks great, nothing to mention here. Your rough perspective exercises were a bit of a struggle when it came to getting your perspective correct but It’s great that you are keeping up with the confident linework on these. You are also doing a good job extending the lines back on your boxes to check your work. As you can see some of your perspective estimations were quite off but that will become more intuitive with consistent practice as you develop better spatial awareness.

The rotated box exercise was also clearly a bit of a struggle. I like that you drew this nice and big as that really helps when dealing with complex spatial problems. You did a good job drawing through your boxes here but this started to unravel for you a bit because you didn’t keep your gaps consistent enough. https://drawabox.com/lesson/1/16/guessing You are also running into a pretty common issue of not actually rotating your boxes in some cases like on the right side especially but instead simply drawing them moving back in perspective. https://drawabox.com/lesson/1/16/notrotating This is a great exercise to come back to after a few lessons to see how much your spatial thinking ability has improved. Your organic perspective exercises turned out decently. You seem to be getting comfortable using the ghosting method and drawing from your shoulder for confident linework which is great. Your box constructions are a bit of a mixed bag with some decent ones along with quite a few wonky ones so the 250 box challenge will be a great next step for you.

Overall this was a pretty solid submission that showed a nice deal of growth. Your line confidence is coming along very well and while your ellipses could still use some work I don’t think there are any bad habits forming. I think you are understanding most of the concepts these lessons are trying to convey quite well. I’m going to mark this as complete and good luck with the 250 box challenge!
