Thank you for all your help, Elodin.

My bad lol. Not sure why I did 4 circles per plane. Odd part is that I did the bottom row properly. Part of me is a little annoyed because I didn't follow the instructions to a T as I was instructed to. Didn't even notice honestly until you pointed it out.
Thanks for all your help BenJ.

I agree with all that you said. I feel like a total fool for breaking some rules like those with the leaves. I remember reading everything but I still forgot anyways. I guess to fix the forgetting issue I must reread and rewatch the content often.
The scribbling part is supposed to be the shadow within the plant lol, didn't mean for it to be a texture. I tried to put shadow but I realize now it was to cover up poor construction. Since if it was constructed correctly in the first place no shading would be needed.
I should be using a warm up routine to strengthen my basics. I'll make sure to do so more consistently from now on. I did some earlier before but not enough variety.
I find drawing fine details with shoulder extremely difficult (details smaller than 1cm). I think I have been using wrist/elbow for fine details. I feel like I need to grind a tremendous amount to get good at doing fine details with shoulder.
I am using ghosting method but not enough, I was told that it's okay to have to ghost many times (10+) times if needed. I don't think I have been ghosting more than once or twice for most lines. I can definitely ghost more often at least until I can consistently be confident. Then I can dial it down and maybe even eventually eliminate it entirely if I have sufficient skill (such as when I have great confidence and great accuracy).
From what I can tell I am aiming for great confidence and great accuracy in the long run. The hierarchy from what I can tell is:
I think I was stuck between #4 and #3. I will never be able to surpass #3 if all I work on is accuracy. Confidence does not come out of only practicing accuracy. However if I prioritize confidence then eventually I can build accuracy and go from #2 to #1.
I'm actually doing remedial work on lessons 1 and 2 at the moment lol. Once I have satisfied the critics, I'll redo lesson 3 as you instructed. Then I'll come back and post it here.

Okay I don't mind redoing the whole lesson. I did it about 6 months ago so it's not really fresh in my mind so it should be quite beneficial doing it again. I'm just wondering if I redo it do I post a reply here or do I put a new submission?

Here is the work: https://imgur.com/a/Y3SU9SC.
I think I did better on the smoothness of the contour forms. Messed up one of the small directional contour ellipse though.
The form intersections though are still really wobbly but I did the lines once this time as you said (instead of repeating again and again until accurate) and literally every line I did missed the mark (for the form intersections). I keep over and under shooting lines from their intended locations. Also it seems like no matter what speed I try to draw it's still wobbly often.
I feel if I overshoot by a lot then I can increase the smoothness of the lines here. I think trying to keep it to match the destination point might be messing me up.
