Subject title: What Do You Think Of My Exercise Sheet?

Hello! It's been many many years since I've been to Sycra's forums. These days I'm much much more motivated to better myself in art, and hoping that one day I'll be good enough to live off my art.

Anyway, I am learning digitally, using a Medium "One" by Wacom, and Paint Tool Sai, and any material I can use to teach myself, mostly youtube.

I am pretty bad without being directed on where to start and how to get going, I got pretty overwhelmed at the beginning not knowing where I should start. However I thought about it and decided that I should first practice Pen control, and the basic shapes, square, triangle, and circle.

I came up with a little practice sheet for myself. First a Square, then a triangle, a couple cylinders, a grid with dots to help with straight lines and angled lines, then circles of increasing sizes, and lastly, and eplipse exercise.

I don't go through all of them, I have been paying most of my time in the grid trying to make straight lines consistantly and attempted to practice circles. Making angled lines straight consistantly, and making circles my moving my hand in a circular shape the best I can is tricky.

Is this how I should be going about this? Does my exercises seem efficient?

I don't have a ton of hours in these exercises, but I'm asking so I don't learn bad habits.

Thanks for the help!
