Greetings Vintages , I reviewed your homework and here are my observations;

1 super imposed lines

short lines are quite good,

but extended lines suffer from *S* curve.

2 ghosted lines

very little overshooting,

long lines still have curves.

3 ghosted planes

taking a picture before you draw ellipses over planes is adviced. 

planes are constructed better with each attempt, that's a good start.

4 table of ellipse

gets better with each attempt

5 elipse on planes

second stroke is consistently shortter than first one,

try not to tighten the arm in attempt to follow the previous path of ellipse 

6 funnels

don't make the funnels too convex

7 plotted perspcetive

good as supposed to be.

8 rough perspective

decent attempt

9 rotated boxes

if an mistae is made don't redraw over it to fix it.

10 organic perspective

draw boxes with varied dimensions if you may.

major take aways

fix the S curve in the strokes

don't over draw to fix mistakes

if you are tired don't rush to the end of the homework. take rest and resume when recharged.

Next Steps:

please take your time to fix s curve

repeat the ellipse on planes worksheets

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Hi, thanks for replying to my post..

I've repeated elipses in planes exercises and I've also taken the picture before drawing the elipses on top of it.

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.
