Lesson 1: Lines, Ellipses and Boxes

Thank you in advance! :)
They look pretty confident in general, but all sets of lines are of the same length. It is recommended to start with a small line, and gradually increase its size to page length. This size of lines might turn into a comfort zone for you, so I want you to experiment with longer lines.
I'm seeing a bit of hesitation at the start of some of your lines, you can overcome it by varying the length of your lines. Like your superimposed lines, most of your lines are of the same length. You don't have to create a nice layout for them, it's not a problem if your lines overlap a little bit. Try to draw longer lines.
Did you scan your ghosted planes before putting ellipses in them? If you did, please update your folder. Your lines look much better in this exercise, so congratulations!
Tables of Ellipses
You forgot to draw through some of your ellipses, please don't forget to do it because it is necessary for us to build up muscle memory. Also don't try to change your elllipses' direction halfway through drawing them, try to keep your arm steady. You left some gaps in some of your tables, so try to plan ahead and visualize how your ellipses fit in table. On the other hand, it looks like you understood the instructions and your ellipses look quite confident. Good job!
Ellipses in Planes
You analyized your mistakes and marked them, these ellipses look confident and fit into the planes nicely. There is tiny bit of hesitation in some of them, but you will get over it with practice. Nice!
We want our ellipses's middle axis to align with the rest of our ellipses, this will be quite important when you start to draw cylinders. So being more careful before putting down your curves might solve this problem.
Looks like you understood how 2 pt. perspective works, I don't see any problem with this exercise.
Your line quality decreases a little bit, drawing ghosted lines & planes with varying sizes can solve this problem.
You could draw the lines in the middle row more parallel to each other, but overall this exercise look really good. Congrats!
Looks like you understood this concept as well, but try not to draw through your lines in order to correct them. Your mistakes caught more attention this way.
250 Box Challenge
I will begin drawing superimposed lines of varying length to warm up. Thank you for your feedback!
