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


Plotted Perspective


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

thank you so much:)

The recommendation below 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.
