Overall pretty good job, here are some pointers so you can keep improving:

Lines

Lines are pretty good in general, keep it up like that and you'll nail the accuracy with practice!

Ellipses

Same with ellipses, pretty good confidence, you'll nail accuracy with time. I recommend drawing through them only 2 times.

Boxes

Lastly, on boxes, you're doing a pretty good job too, though you are repeating some lines. Remember that no matter how wrong a line is, you shouldn't repeat it in those exercises, keep going as if it were correct.

You can also add lineweight on organic perspective on the parts of the silhouette of boxes that overlap, to clarify relationship between boxes.

Next Steps:

First of all, congratulations on finishing lesson 1! Your next step is the box challenge.

As I marked this as complete, you are now qualified to critique lesson 1 submissions.

-Doing critiques is a way of learning and solidifying concepts. I can atest to that after having done hundreds of critiques. There are a lot of concepts that I did not understand, and thanks to critiquing I started understanding them. Which made me learn a lot more through the course.

-Another thing is that as the number of current submissions is super high, if you critique some critiques, those would be less critiques I'd have to critique before reaching your next submissions, so you'd get your critiques faster.

It's totally optional of course, I won't force anyone to give critiques. But me and the other people who are critiquing would be super grateful if you gave it a shot.

Good luck on the box challenge, and keep up the good work!

NOTE: here's a quick guide on critiquing lesson 1 submissions.

There are a few people that feel hesitant to critique because they feel they aren't ready to it so hopefully it'll help you in case you are one of those people.

Thanks a lot for your critique. I'll be sure to focus on these things for next time.

### Marshall Vandruff's Linear Perspective Videos

Despite their age, Marshall Vandruff's videos on Linear Perspective are some of the best lectures on all the ins and outs of perspective, and as an instructor, he is highly respected across the board. He goes into a lot of the intricacies that I don't touch on in much depth (at least, not if I can help it).

On top of being some of the best, his lectures are also among the most accessible, at the full 8 hour set for \$12.00. There's literally no reason not to grab them.
