Lines:

You have quite the problem with arching in your superimposed lines. This might happen when you're too focused in the end dots. It's better to have straight lines that frays off rather than arching for now, so just shoot away your hands.

Ellipses:

Just some wobbling, nothing to worry about. It will came off within more time you draw

Boxes:

I see that you're having problems with perspective in your rotated boxes. This might help https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/368870697742630912/715669112222908466/zfr3o7xneog31.png

I must say good job with the line weight on that. Do try to be more subtle with it, some of it was too bold and interfering with the back lines

All in all, you're doing a good job. Congrats for finishing Lesson 1, you're free to go to the next lesson.

Hello.

1. Lines

Perfect! Absolutely no real issues here. Your lines are smooth, straight as possible, and constant - with no wavering. They begin at a single point and conclude precisely at another.

Getting into the habit of thinking before you draw is the objective. Take into account the intended purpose of the mark you are about to create, whether it is the best mark for that, and whether another mark already exists that is fulfilling the same objective.

2. Ellipses

No issues here. You've drawn your ellipses through several times, each time with a specific goal in mind.

These concern the representation of circles in three dimensions and the understanding of how the ellipses used to represent them vary according to the rotation and movement of those three-dimensional shapes.

3. Boxes

Plotted Perspective: I don't see your assignment for plotting lines back to vanishing points to create boxes. Did you finish it? While 3D space exists as a set of each of the three dimensions, boxes give us three different sets of edges, each flowing in a single direction of a single dimension and perpendicular to the complementary two. You need to prove to us that you are capable of plotting boxes back to VP's.

Lines and Ellipses are fine. Finish your boxes.
