    Hello, sorry for the delay, but I got the 30 extra boxes done.

    I focused on leaving the converging point closer this time, though I did try some farther ones on a few of the boxes.

    I think these extra ones helped tighten up the converging lines, even when some of them accidentally converge in pairs, they're still closer to the others, instead of deviating completely.

    Hello, thanks for taking you time to review my submission. As for the points you made, you are totally correct, since I'm practically starting from 0, I'm still getting used to drawing from the shoulder, it still feels a little weird, to be honest, even as I'm getting used to it, and line confidence is still somewhat of a 50/50 because of me trying to be accurate.

    The biggest problem currently I feel is that I'm not completely consistent when drawing on whether I try to be accurate or confident, so it ends up with some of the inconsistencies on the drawings, but I usually make an effort to not try and go out of my way to correct them, considering the mentality of "owing up to the mistakes" and not grinding, as mentioned in lesson 0. Hopefully I'll whittle my bad habits down as I keep following the lessons, and develop better ones in their place.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
