Hi VICTOR247! I'll review your work :)

Lines

Pretty good, but I see some issues. Most of the lines are wobbly, probably due to a lack of confidence. I feel that maybe you rushed a little bit while doing the exercises and I would suggest doing them in a more relaxed way and taking your time (make sure you are applying the 50% rule). Also some arching of the lines, which can be solved by conciously arching them the other direction.

Ellipses

Some of them deformed (meaning they don't have an elliptical shape) and most of the time they fail to adjust to the bounds (of the table, a funnel or a plane). Again, take your time, remember the three step process of making a line.

Boxes

Your boxes are great. But some of your boxes in Organic Perspective are actually drawn in two point perspective, always apply the Y method of constructing a box in this stages. Other than that, you have some perspective issues that will take care of themselves in the 250 boxes challenge.

Next Steps:

Move on to the 250 boxes challenge and have fun drawing!

### Rapid Viz

Rapid Viz is a book after mine own heart, and exists very much in the same spirit of the concepts that inspired Drawabox. It's all about getting your ideas down on the page, doing so quickly and clearly, so as to communicate them to others. These skills are not only critical in design, but also in the myriad of technical and STEM fields that can really benefit from having someone who can facilitate getting one person's idea across to another.

Where Drawabox focuses on developing underlying spatial thinking skills to help facilitate that kind of communication, Rapid Viz's quick and dirty approach can help students loosen up and really move past the irrelevant matters of being "perfect" or "correct", and focus instead on getting your ideas from your brain, onto the page, and into someone else's brain as efficiently as possible.
