New here but going to give this a shot, I think overall your lines elipses and boxes are pretty good as are your vanishing points for the later material, I have the sense that you understand the goals of each excercise.
There is one thing though, the tubed elipses seems like they gave you some trouble which I think that is probably very common. They don't look in sync with each other's axis, some are wobbly. I also feel like there's some inconsistency with the weight of each circle especially as they come in and out of the tubes. I do have a tip that may help you with that:
Take any lined paper and start at one end and make parallel loops all the way to the end without lifting the writing tool. The goal is to make sure they are all parallel and they fill the space up and down without going over or under. In the beginning accuracy is not important, just getting comfortable with the motion. Keep in mind I'm not a drawabox TA nor is this a drawabox specific technique, this method of practice I personally learned from handstyle lettering artists who used this as a way to map their letters freehand so they all slant in the same direction without which just happened to translate well for me in the exercise.
Here is a quick sketch example of what I mean (I haven't had lined paper in years so I rulled it out):
Like I said, not a drawabox technique and only vaguely related but it did come to mind when I was looking over your assignement and I thought maybe it could help. Maybe try a page or two as a warm up before you begin again. Good luck bud!

I really really really appreciate the feedback and critique. I will try the exercises you mentioned. I moved around a lot in third grade when cursive was being taught so it makes sense that I would be lacking in certain handwriting skills that might contribute to ellipses. I'll give the exercise you mentioned a shot as a warmup. Thanks again!

Hi! Checking out old submissions that are still incomplete.
You made an excellent work here, and I actually think your ellipses are fine. At this stage they're not supposed to be perfect, and these exercises serves you as a starting warmup for your fundamentals.
I'll mark this lesson as complete, feel free to tackle the 250 box challenge. And good luck!
