For your organic forms with contour ellipses, make sure the width of the oval changes with the perspective of the form. For example, the second one down from the right appears to have ovals of all the same size, but based on how it's rotating the middle one should be the skinniest and the two to the sides should get slightly larger than the middle one, before reaching the ones are the ends, which will be the widest (does that make sense?)

Seems like you figured it out by the organic forms with contour lines exercise, so no need to do revisions.

Thanks a lot for your feedback!

I made that mistake with the contour ellipses because I wasn't yet full aware of how the organic form sat in space; I started understanding during the contour curves and mostly during the dissections and the organic intersections.

How to Draw by Scott Robertson

When it comes to technical drawing, there's no one better than Scott Robertson. I regularly use this book as a reference when eyeballing my perspective just won't cut it anymore. Need to figure out exactly how to rotate an object in 3D space? How to project a shape in perspective? Look no further.
