    Not every object has 3 VP. If your object has 12 faces, it has more than 3 VP. (every set of parallel lines gives you a VP).

    For the 250 boxes we mostly start with a corner so it`s 3 VP.

    Thank you for the critique!

    It was very clear and the links were really helpful. I hope I understood it well.

    Here is the link for the additional drawings :

    Did I correct the mistakes and is there anything else I can improve?

    Thank you!

    I have been doing these along with gesture drawings and honestly I know I improved since now I can draw what I could only in side view, in 3D and any direction. it is not as good since I just completed plants and i'm into insects but even my snakes look better (since I use a method similar to the branches). I am sure that after the next subjects I am just going to get better at it. Also, the strengh of the construction method is once you've drawn the same thing object/ animal in different positions, it's actually easier to draw it from imagination. Try it with a branch and leaves (since that's the lesson you last finished) and you will see.

    Have Fun!

    This is the only information there is I think : (bottom 2 paragraphs).

    Personally I often do ellipses in planes, ellipses in tables, super imposed lines, boxes and as I progress, organic forms and arrows (you will see in lesson 2).

    Have fun!

    Since you only have full black and white, I'd not draw them, or maybe just a weighted line at the bottom of the droplet, nothing more.

    Imgur. It's so much easier to see all the images in the same page and simply having to scroll down.

    Have fun!

    I think you are over thinking the shoulder part. As long as the elbow is not on the table and not restricting your shoulder, a strait line is a combination of the movement of the elbow and the shoulder. The wrist shouldn't do much though. Don't go locking in your elbow and making your arm stiff. After that, focus on making a strait line, and your body will do the rest. I hope that helps you

    When you mention "line that fit in a box" you mean the hatching lines? If so, maybe you simply want to try putting points first (like when drawing the box) and with practice removing them.

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.
