Hi! Real quick, the table of ellipses exercise has similar issues to the planes (poor spacing, rotating around your ellipses too much), and as for the rotated boxes exercise, this is a solid attempt at it, though the boxes don’t quite rotate, and some of them have spacing issues in their far planes. You also haven’t been too careful in regards to where a line starts/ends, in relation to the previous box, and, of course, there’s issues of line-confidence, but that’s of no concern for this particular exercise. Here, we’re mostly checking to see whether you’ve seen the exercise through to the end, and done your best. As I feel that you have, I won’t request that you repeat this one, but do give me 1 page of the table of ellipses exercise, same as all of the others.

Thanks for your critics on the second part of the submission.

I tried to add them in the same imgur image gallery but it didn't work.

Anyway here is the first part of extra-exercices you requested. Super-imposed lines, Ghost Plane and Ghost lines.

Feel free to ask them again if the execution does not meet validation standards.

I'll submit the second part tomorrow and the last part in two days.

This is certainly an improvement, and enough of one that I don’t need to ask for a second re-do, but I’ll request that you be a little more mindful of my instructions. In my original critique, for the superimposed lines, I said ‘it’d be nice if you could experiment with different lengths of lines, as per the instructions (a few inches, then double that, then half-page width, then full-page width.)’ For the ghosted lines, I said ‘you haven’t been too careful about starting the line at the correct starting point. Remember that though it’s okay for it to overshoot the end point, or stop short of it, the starting point should be respected, as, contrary to it, this one speaks to our patience, in lining up our pen. By the way, here, too, it’d have been nice to try out a bunch of different lengths.’ Neither of these are any better in this submission, unfortunately, and that’s a bit of a missed opportunity, considering you’re already going through the trouble of doing it again. Nonetheless, what I was after was confidence, and these have that, so I’ll let you move on to the next part.

Hello again,

Here is the next part of the exercices you asked me to do again.

### Sketching: The Basics

A lot of folks have heard about Scott Robertson's "How to Draw" - it's basically a classic at this point, and deservedly so. It's also a book that a lot of people struggle with, for the simple reason that they expect it to be a manual or a lesson plan explaining, well... how to draw. It's a reasonable assumption, but I've found that book to be more of a reference book - like an encyclopedia for perspective problems, more useful to people who already have a good basis in perspective.

Sketching: The Basics is a far better choice for beginners. It's more digestible, and while it introduces a lot of similar concepts, it does so in a manner more suited to those earlier in their studies.
