    There seems to be an issue with both quizzes where both have a question in which none of the answers work. I pick the answer I believe to be correct and it tells me it is wrong. I read the past question where you said you fixed it but it appears to still be broken.

    What is the supposed correct andere for the second question in the 2 point Perspective quiz? Currently all of them are wrong, or at least all of them get marked as false. ☺

      Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I’ve reuploaded the brushes to the Project Files, it should be the 5000px brush at the end. Let me know if it works for you. -Joe
