Despite Aaron's warning, as a beginner I fell into the trap of wanting to do the advance level and extra credit! That mistake cost me a few days but taught me a valuable lesson to not strive for over achieving, but instead constant learning and momentum. Even so once I finish the beginner level of the course I can always come around and do the advance level afterwards.
About my sketches, I thought a good place to start but still create original images is to use images that I took from my travels around the world. In these sketches my goal was to not achieve perfection but to simply reach a point where it could communicate what was going on in the images. Good lesson to help practice perspective, scale, lighting and depth all within a reasonable time frame.
