It’s the former. Even if mostly unsuccessful, so long as we see some evidence that you’re understanding, and attempting to follow our instructions, you’ll be good to move on. A lot of these things you won’t be able to improve overnight, after all. So, instead of grinding, simply give it another shot, and try to make use of what you’ve learned, is the concept behind the revisions. Looking at them now:

The superimposed lines look fantastic; smooth, properly lined up at the start, and of a consistent trajectory.

The ghosted planes are clean, and much better at not overshooting. Be careful to plot start/end points for all of their center lines, however- some seem to be missing them.

The rough perspective exercise looks better, in regards to its confidence, but the convergences themselves are unfortunately unchanged. Since the text instructions don’t seem to have helped, I’ll recommend something visual next. Take a look at this demonstration, and try to follow alongside it for a couple of boxes.

The organic perspective exercise is mostly improved, save for a misunderstanding. The points on the page shouldn’t just tell you the direction of the line, but its length, too. So, for the outer corners, the point of intersection should be a point, instead. That said, the boxes themselves look fine- you’re clearly planning them now.

Next Steps:

I’ll move you on to the box challenge, but please continue working on the rough perspective exercise in your own time, and don’t hesitate to reply here if you still find yourself struggling with it. As for how to tell, simply look at your correction lines.

This critique marks this lesson as complete.

I think my problem looking at it is I'm probably not ghosting the the other like converging lines to the VP as far as I should have because I probably wanted to make sure that it was like the other rectangle was formed. I'll be sure to review the video and try it again later.

12:33 AM, Friday February 26th 2021 my lines are kinda rushed here to see if my assuption was correct but outside of that one line on the far left it is meant to converge like so?

Yes. There’s still a little bit of resistance, in some places (for boxes that are really close to the vanishing point, especially, there’s no excuse for them not to be perfect, or almost perfect), but this is a lot better in terms of the convergences. The linework, as you said, is awful, and I do wish you hadn’t rushed this, regardless of reason, but there’s nothing we can do about it now.

Next Steps:

Move on to the box challenge.

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

There are a lot of options for illustration software out there, but mine has always been Adobe Photoshop. I've been using it for nearly 20 years now, ever since I started fooling around with digital art, and it has served me well into my career, both in freelancing and in studio positions. One of the biggest advantages, in my opinion, for those jumping into digital art with Photoshop now is its accessibility. Where when I was younger, it'd cost hundreds, even over a thousand dollars for a software license, younger students can now get their feet wet with industry standard software for just $10/month with their Photography Plan.
