Ok I'm going to try to do my best and respond to what I think I can comfortably respond to :D

Superimposed lines: These all look fine! I didn't see any fraying on the starting ends which is good, it might be a good idea as warmups to practice more curves or zig zags. Overall that part seems good to me!

Ghosted lines: These look good too, some wobbling which is fine, you're still learning after all. Just keep it up with practice and potentially do a larger variety of line lengths as warmups.

Ghosted Planes: These look fine too! Just keep up practice.

Ellipses: Make sure your ellipses are reaching the tops and bottoms of the barriers, also work to avoid overlapping.

Ghosted Planes with Ellipses: These look good too

Ellipses in Funnels: These look good too.

Next Steps:

Move on to 250 box in imho. Although i would wait for someone more experienced potentially to check the box section although to me it looks good

Psst! They're a patron! (You can tell from the border around their picture- it's yellow!) A TA has likely given this submission the go-ahead, and they're just posting it for the sake of completion~

This 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.


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.
