Flat and square lumber makes a big difference. It’ll effect layout in a bunch of different ways and i think thats the issue in pic 2 with that deep baseline. Either that or your first chisel blow pushed back.

With that said, your layout looks good, angles look good, you cut good and straight with only a couple overshoots. Chisel work appears to be strong as well. Very good for your first attempt. Very good.
