Timed First attempt

Timed First attempt - student project

I have been struggling very much with the timed exercises so far. I mostly draw from reference so i'm trying to force myself to interpret with very little success. I wanted to share to see if there was other advice that could be offered to make myself reference less or actually try to interpret. I want to copy lines and cant seem to stop myself from wanting to do that. 

 

I also have a hard time putting things in the right perspective. I cant wrap my head around the idea of how to tilt things right, or maybe im over/under thinking it.
