Hello Inky, welcome to drawabox! Overall you've done a pretty good job, let's go through it section by section:
Starting with your lines they start off a bit wobbly but they get a lot more confident through the exercises, good job! I can end up seeing that you aren't afraid of committing to your lines to get a confident line even if that means you're going to miss the ending mark for the line, which is just what we're looking for!
On the ghosted lines and planes you've only drawn pretty short lines though, so I would have liked to see some longer ones, give them a shot on next attempts on the exercises. Superimposed lines are a bit wobbly as well, so try to approach them like you did on the next exercises. You can apply ghosting to the first line of the superimposed lines as well, should help to get them better!
Moving onto your ellipses you're doing overall a very good job at drawing them confidently. They do get a bit wobbly, specially the smaller ones. So try to loosen up a bit and trust your muscle memory more so they end up being confident consistently. If you are using your wrist on the smaller ones make sure you use your shoulder as well.
This applies as well to the ellipses on ghosted planes, which I think they're a bit wobblier than the others. You might be thinking that the centre of the ellipses is the same as the centre of the planes, but this is not the case. Ellipses have to be symmetrical and have the same form regardless of where they are, so the only things you can change is how wide the ellipse is and which position it is in.
Lastly on your funnels sometimes you aren't always alligning the ellipses to the minor axis. Make sure you always aim for the ellipses to be cut symmetrically by the middle line even if that means you need to ignore the initial curves. They are a bit tilted at times as well, as they are symmetrical they have to be straight, so keep an eye on that as well next tries!
Finally in your boxes a few things:
-Your lines do get a bit more wobbly at times on the boxes (so try to keep an eye on that), but overall they're pretty confident on this section as well. Good job!
-Sometimes you're repeating lines that were off but no matter how off a line is, don't repeat it. Keep going as if it was correct as drawing them will make the drawing messier and can encourage bad habits like automatic reinforcing your lines after you miss.
-On rough perspective you have trouble at times keeping height lines perpendicular to the horizon line, and width lines parallel to it. I know it's hard, but make sure you always are aiming for it. You can check if the starting and ending dots are correct or not, and if you find that they aren't you can change them. You can put down as many dots as you want as long as it's before drawing the actual line.
-On rotated boxes it looks like you got a bit confused, which is perfectly normal as this exercise is excepted to be super hard, but you did a great job either way! Most of the boxes are rotating and close together, which is the main thing you should aim for in this exercise. The only thing on it is that some of the outer parts aren't rotating, so try to keep an eye on it next time you try it on next attempts!
-On organic perspective you've done a good attempt, but you haven't drawn starting and ending dots before drawing lines on the exercise. Make sure you always do it as it's super important for applying the ghosting method correctly. Perspective on the boxes have issues but that's not a problem as you'll work on it through the box challenge. Other than that it's a good attempt!
Overall you've done a great job, just make sure you place starting and ending dots before drawing every line when drawing boxes, it'll be extremely important throughout the box challenge so don't forget it!. That said, don't forget to do warmups from now on, and good luck on the box challenge! Don't forget to ask any questions you have as well!
