Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes

Thanks for the feedback in advance! I had to repost this since the link on my previous post wasn't working.
Great work! I think by having more confidence in your line work, your drawings will look a lot better. There was a lot of wobbly lines. Other then that, your solid.
Congratulations on completing lessson 1.
Here are some things I noticed about your homework:
Your superimposed lines are pretty good, you are starting in the same position every time and the fraying is only at the end which is normal for most people.
In the ghosted lines and ghosted planes exercise you seem to have some slight arches in your line work. This can be corrected by trying to arch your line in the opposite direction, or alternately it may be caused by not using your shoulder while drawing. Also there is a bit of a wobble near the end points in some of your planes as you might be hesitating while trying to hit the end point exactly, causing a slight bump near the ends. Although I did see an improvement in your second page of planes.
Your ellipses all look very good and confidently drawn. The minor axis divides each ellipse in symmetrical halves. Very nice!
Your plotted perspective exercise is great also, and on your rough perspective, just make sure your width lines are parallel to the horizon line. Some of them are slanting a bit.
Some of the boxes on your rotated boxes exercise share the same vanishing point, so pushing the rotation a little more would make the boxes appear more rotated.
The organic perspective exercise is also well done. You have a nice flow of larger to smaller boxes with some nice overlap. If you practice your line weight a little more, it will help to emphasize which box is in front.
I hope this helps.
You did a really good job overall!
