    I was drawing boxes with parallel lines on purpose. I didn't get the real intention of the exercise on the time I started the challenge, now I see I was doing it wrong, looks like I should start it all over again.

    Thank you. Looks like I have to start all over again...

    I do put points first, but I feel like I have to choose between hitting a straight line into these points or using my shoulder. I feel like I can't do both when I try to be accurate.

    I should had mentioned it earlier. Thank you very much.

    So it is normal to feel pain? Because it's painful to me when I try to use my shoulder and I feel like I have to choose between using my shoulder or drawing straight lines.

    When I put my elbow on the table I see that I don't use the shoulder so I try not doing it.

    Thank you very much!

    I will strive to improve with your advices.

Staedtler Pigment Liners

Staedtler Pigment Liners

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
