I worked through lesson 5 in Drawabox and have started doing form and figure studies. I’m noticing how perspective feels intuitive with form studies, and how drawing angled cubes for hips and chests in figures comes relatively easy. I’m not perfect at any of these things by a long shot, but spending less energy thinking about boxes leaves a lot more room to focus on the thing I’m actually trying to study.

外围体育投注I guess I’m trying to say that there is a reason they’re called fundamentals, and to trust in the tedious process.

外围体育投注Hello here,

First post on reddit, but i guess i need help on what to do.

外围体育投注Quickly about me : I'm self deprecrating since 8 years, I'm in depression since 2 years (so the hole "hating myself" thing got worst) and I started drawing since last year. I knew I was doing things wrong and so I decided to start Draw A Box courses to get right my basics before moving up to my main objective : drawing characters.

外围体育投注While finishing the first homework, i realized i was doing all my ghosted lines (and ghosted planes) from an elbow pivot, and not a shoulder pivot :

The difference is pretty visible, as I went from pretty straight lines with some default to wobbling unstable lines that rarely hit the second point. I decided to finish the page, with great mental difficulties cause i could see How Bad It Was.

My problem : I know we aren't supposed to redo the exercices (to avoid perfectionism), but since i've done quite a huge part with the wrong hand movement, i'm kinda missing the point of the exercices. So, should i redo them ?

Also, I'm really wandering if Draw A Box is made for me. I'm the "bad perfectionist" type : either I do something perfectly, either I ragequit while blaming myself not being good enough. Am I just pushing myself to quit should I try to hold on just a bit more ?

Thanks in advance for any feedbacks

外围体育投注I'm going to explain this as best as I can. I want to know if anyone else has encountered the same struggle.

外围体育投注I'm 70 boxes in (and aside from it looking like I didn't improve since box 1) I have this reoccurring issue. The internal lines of the box, the three lines that outline the inside of it, rarely meet at a common point. I always have it sacrifice or offset one of them to make them meet which in return is messing up my convergences. Is this because I got convergence wrong to begin with elsewhere in the box?
