    Thank you! Ngl I started enjoying this tedious exercise in the end.

    Ans thanks a ton for taking your precious time out and giving such a detailed feedback on my exercise. I really appreciate that.

    Yes I will try to be more careful about the variations and divergence in future warmups. The links you've attached wrt to that seems really helpful. I've rated your critique as a gesture to show that I'm grateful to you. :)

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

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.
