    You clearly have improved rapidly over the course of this challenge. The perspective is clean(though not flawless, it has significantly improved) and you are able to show the illusion of depth much stronger.

    Next Steps:

    Move on to the next lesson, and keep up the good work.

    These look really good. Proportions are in need of a little work, but the construction itself gives a strong sense of form, and does make it feel 3 dimensional. Proportions are one of the hardest part of this subject, and not the major focus, so something to keep working on on the side. The line quality is exceptionally smooth, and confident. You clearly understand construction by now, and have the marksmanship skills to pull off what you want to.

    Next Steps:

    Move onto next lesson, and keep up the good work.

    These exercises seem fairly well done. However, there are a few notable things you might want to work on.

    Most majorly, your line quality. You seem to have a good deal of trouble with making clean confident lines. Personally, i recommend doing the ghosting and superimposed lines a fair few more times to try and help improve that. It'll make everything harder if you don't try and address that.

    Second major thing i noticed was with your ellipses, you seem to have significant trouble pushing them as far as you need to, to take up the whole given space. I recommend doing more ellipses as well as a warmup in order to help improve this.

    Overall, i think you're doing fairly well.

    Next Steps:

    Continue to work on these exercises as homework, and move on to the 250 box challenge.

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.
Ellipse Master Template

Ellipse Master Template

This recommendation is really just for those of you who've reached lesson 6 and onwards.

I haven't found the actual brand you buy to matter much, so you may want to shop around. This one is a "master" template, which will give you a broad range of ellipse degrees and sizes (this one ranges between 0.25 inches and 1.5 inches), and is a good place to start. You may end up finding that this range limits the kinds of ellipses you draw, forcing you to work within those bounds, but it may still be worth it as full sets of ellipse guides can run you quite a bit more, simply due to the sizes and degrees that need to be covered.

No matter which brand of ellipse guide you decide to pick up, make sure they have little markings for the minor axes.
