Superimposed Lines

You have a bit of arching with longer lines but you took the time to align your pen at the start of your line, good

Ghosted Lines

You overshoot most of your lines, that can be fixed if you practice more on the sheet

Ghosted Planes

You overshoot a little bit

Tables of Ellipses & Ellipses in Planes

These are OK but quality of your ellipses decrease at your second page

Funnels of Ellipses

Good

Plotted Perspective

Good

Rough Perspective

You didn't complete some of your lines and a couple of them are wobbly due to hesitation, you'll practice them a lot in 250 box challenge

Rotated Boxes

This one is actually pretty good, well done!

Organic Perspective

Some of these boxes are not actually cubes, you drew some isometric cubes with no perspective but you needed to implement what you've learned from 3 pt perspective here. However your linework is quite good in this exercise

Next Steps:

Proceed to 250 Box Challenge

### The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
