Alrighty! So I'll look at your parts 2 and 3, then~

Not that there's a lot to say about them, haha, this is a near-flawless submission. Really, the only thing that I'd like to point out is the line-weight, on your organic perspective exercise. It should be applied locally (to parts of the line, rather than the entirety of it- in this case, the parts that are overlapping something, + a bit further, for effect), and only to the silhouette (never to the inner lines, as that makes the box look more like a collection of lines, than a box.) Also, be a little more subtle with it- a single superimposed line will do, a lot of the time. If it helps, here it is, in one of my recent daily's:

Anyway; once again, fantastic job, and good luck in the box challenge!

Alvin TD1267 Even Ellipse Master Template

This recommendation is really just for those of you who've reached lesson 6 and onwards.

I haven't found the actual brand you buy to matter much, but most of those that I've seen are produced by Alvin. This one is a "master" template, which will give you a broad range of ellipse degrees and sizes (this one ranges between 0.25 inches and 1.5 inches), and is a good place to start. You may end up finding that this range limits the kinds of ellipses you draw, forcing you to work within those bounds, but it may still be worth it as full sets of ellipse guides can run you quite a bit more, simply due to the sizes and degrees that need to be covered.

No matter which brand of ellipse guide you decide to pick up, make sure they have little markings for the minor axes.
