I had to experiment a lot before getting it ( I think ). It's easier to try a lot of examples and see what looks right.

Break it down to the simplest example.

Draw a plane in space like in the earlier exercise. Draw a line that goes over the the top of it. Now start inking from one end of the line until it looks like it has reached the the plane. Stop there. That is a basic step of the exercise.

I think it is something that you need to keep trying, evaluating, and eventually something clicks. Rewatch the example videos too.

PS I now remember that I created a couple of A4 sheets of shapes. I then printed out several copies of each. I practiced on these until I managed to get the hang of it. You really have to use your brain to visualise.

I had a go at the first one. I would advise you to keep it simple to start with, this one is very complicated.

And if you choose to swap the boxes around.

This is why the first line you decide on fixes which way the objects intersect.

Here is how I would do example 3 ( roughly ). Once you have establised the point where the edge meets the plane you then need to think how the two planes interact. How does one cat the other ( it has to be on the planes surface. ). Expect to see more angled lines not just right angles.

sorry for the late reply! thanks for the feedback!!

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

### PureRef

This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend \$5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
