Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes

Lesson 1 Complete!
This isn't self critque, but i will say what i struggled on.
Personally i felt i struggled the most on the Perspective and boxes parts and honestly if i hadn't taken a few weeks to understand the basics of perspective before starting this course, i would have been completely lost. I feel like this lesson did not explain the basics of perspective well enough. In the video, indeed even on the web page the definitions of vanishing points and horizon lines etc, even defining what they were, was not said in the lesson. Its a bit dissapointing to see from a course which is adverstised as absolute beginner friendly.
I also feel like the videos and the animated diagram on the boxes portion of the lesson was not well presented or explained enough, for example on the rotated boxes exercise it was demonstrated on a digital canvas and so i had no frame of reference for how big it should be, and as a result my own work came out small and compressed despite having plenty of paper left.
I also struggled on Organic perspective in regards to scale. No matter what i tried, they always seemed to come out at roughly the same size.
Any Critique is most welcome!
