Hi AHMEDHASSAN021! I'll review your work.

Lines

Not bad, but I see some wobbliness, so try to draw more confidently. Also, in Superimposed Lines, I wouldn't recommend drawing everything from the same line, as it can be more confusing than a single point. I also see some small lines you probably did while ghosting next to the lines you drew. This is not much of a problem but keep it in mind and don't put your pen on the paper until you want to draw the line.

Additionally, I would suggest you try to draw different planes. Yours look too similar to one another and too squared. Try placing the four points like the example page.

Ellipses

Not much to say about them, they are great. Just some common mistakes that will dissapear with practice. Especially keeping ellipses within the bound and

Boxes

I like them but I see some problems. Firstly, the line weight, it should be done with more confidence and not so hard in the internal lines of the box. In Rotated Boxes the gap between boxes should be narrower. And in Rough Perspective many of the lines have mistakes you didn't have previously. That shows that more time can be put in ghosting the lines.

Next Steps:

Keep working on the exercises in warm-ups and tackle the 250 boxes challenge. Have fun drawing!

The Superimposed Lines thing was just a recommendation, nevermind. I just think is better to spread the lines across the page, because you left a lot of uncovered space.

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 we've used ourselves, or know to be of impeccable quality. If you're interested, here is a full list.

### Wescott Grid Ruler

Every now and then I'll get someone asking me about which ruler I use in my videos. It's this Wescott grid ruler that I picked up ages ago. While having a transparent grid is useful for figuring out spacing and perpendicularity, it ultimately not something that you can't achieve with any old ruler (or a piece of paper you've folded into a hard edge). Might require a little more attention, a little more focus, but you don't need a fancy tool for this.

But hey, if you want one, who am I to stop you?
