    I dissagree with your choice.

    Work with what is hard for you and get better at it.

    Since the project is an elective the student has the option as to which one he/she is going to do.

    I have no problem with the choice you have made. Keep up the good work.

    I'm sure you are free to sign up with P-F and try your hand at whatever you like. But after having followed several of these P-F student threads, it seems obvious to me that the students aren't exactly getting a fair deal, much less a good one, nor is it necessarily applicable, real-world experience. I'd cut 'em some slack and just hope they get through it as best they can, and with as much of their hair intact as they can.

    Fair enough.

    That's good news. In the future, north arrows and scale bars should not be large than the objects you are drawing as they are visually distracting.
