Thanks for the feedback. I'm a bit confused what you mean by plant construction branches. Do you want me to draw plants that contain branches using construction or is it more focusing on drawing branches?

I struggle with the same issue. As someone who has completed the 250 box challenge, my best advice is to simply push through it and don't get discouraged. It gets hard seeing work that is less than favorable, but after completing it I noticed significant improvement in not only my boxes, but also my line work. It has become much easier for me to draw a confident and smooth line after doing the challenge.

Sorry for the late response. Got caught up in a few things the past months and also went through some older lessons just to refresh my memory. Here are the re-done exercises.

For the organic forms with contours, should I do contour ellipses, contour curves, or 1 page of each?

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

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.
