Great work! I don't have much to say. You could've drawn bigger boxes on the rotate boxes exercise, but it still looks good.

Thanks for your reply! I'll do that next time I work on that exercise!

For the super imposed lines, ghosted lines, and ghosted planes, you're on a roll! For the super imposed lines, maybe try longer lines, they are harder but also lets you feel the movement from the shoulder more.

You also did well on the tables of ellipses, ellipses in planes, funnels, and plotted perspective and rotated boxes.

rotated Boxes.

For the organic perspective, try foreshortening more, it give a illusion that some boxes are near and some far. Exaggerate how big the nearest box it. Something that would help is to see the example that uncomfortable gives and see how he does the foreshortening. Also, try overlapping some boxes, it also helps with the illusion. I personally think its fun to overlap.

Next Steps:

You can now move onto the 250 box challlenge!

Thank you so much for your critique! I struggled a lot with the organic perspective exercise, so I will make sure to look more closely at uncomfortable's example, I will also take note of foreshortening! I appreciate you taking the time to help me!

Marshall Vandruff's Linear Perspective Videos

Despite their age, Marshall Vandruff's videos on Linear Perspective are some of the best lectures on all the ins and outs of perspective, and as an instructor, he is highly respected across the board. He goes into a lot of the intricacies that I don't touch on in much depth (at least, not if I can help it).

On top of being some of the best, his lectures are also among the most accessible, at the full 8 hour set for \$12.00. There's literally no reason not to grab them.
