Superimposed lines: Looking pretty good, nothing to say here.

Ghosted lines: Try more confident strokes, your lines are minorly wobbly which'll improve with time.

Ellipses in planes: Again, try to be more confident with your strokes, some of the ellipses don't quite reach.

Tables of ellipses: Remember to draw ellipses two times around!

Funnels: Also remember to draw ellipses two times around.

Rough perspective: Looks good.

Organic perspective: Try to have a more gradual decrease in size of boxes, don't try to draw super small boxes.

Overall, pretty good, I think you could use some redo on some of the exercises, but you're doing pretty well so far. I think it's cool that you wrote down what you used on the funnels exercise! Good job, you'll definitely get better!

Next Steps:

Redo 1 table of ellipses, and 1 funnel.

### The Art of Brom

Here we're getting into the subjective - Gerald Brom is one of my favourite artists (and a pretty fantastic novelist!). That said, if I recommended art books just for the beautiful images contained therein, my list of recommendations would be miles long.

The reason this book is close to my heart is because of its introduction, where Brom goes explains in detail just how he went from being an army brat to one of the most highly respected dark fantasy artists in the world today. I believe that one's work is flavoured by their life's experiences, and discovering the roots from which other artists hail can help give one perspective on their own beginnings, and perhaps their eventual destination as well.
