Lines: I can see wobbliness in some lines, above all I can see it in ghosted and in superimposed. I can also see that in ghosted lines the lines are a little arched.

Ellipses: I can see that you have more confidence doing ellipses than lines. In the funnel exercise some ellipses are rotated from the minor axis. In table of ellipses I can see ellipses that cross the lines

Boxes: In plotted perspective I can see that some boxes have height lines that are not perpendicular to the horizon line. In rotated boxes and organic perspective I can see problems with the perspective of the boxes. This is completely normal in the beginning, and all this will be improved with practice.

I can see that you have done all the exercises and have followed the steps correctly in each one. I see that you understand the purpose of all these exercises and that's the most important thing, the mistakes you make will improve over time and practice, so I can mark the lesson as complete. Good luck with the 250 box challenge

Thank you very much for the feedback!

Actually i tought to be more confident with straight lines rather then with ellipses.

No problem, I also forgot to put a guide for the rotated boxes exercise, so here you are

### Sketching: The Basics

A lot of folks have heard about Scott Robertson's "How to Draw" - it's basically a classic at this point, and deservedly so. It's also a book that a lot of people struggle with, for the simple reason that they expect it to be a manual or a lesson plan explaining, well... how to draw. It's a reasonable assumption, but I've found that book to be more of a reference book - like an encyclopedia for perspective problems, more useful to people who already have a good basis in perspective.

Sketching: The Basics is a far better choice for beginners. It's more digestible, and while it introduces a lot of similar concepts, it does so in a manner more suited to those earlier in their studies.
