    Thanks a lot for the review :D ! I'll keep all your suggestions in mind when drawing my next boxes.

    Hi ! Your lines exercises look great.

    On the elipses ones you are getting a bit of overlapping, and the second pass through each elipse doesn't look that clean. To avoid this, try ghosting more before drawing each elipse.

    On your rotated boxes you got the first "layer" of boxes (the ones adjacent to the middle box) right, but when it comes to the outer boxes it seems you are not getting enough rotation in. To improve on this you can use more aggresive movement of the vanishing points towards which each outer box points to. You should also reduce the area of the face that's facing outwards, closer to the edge, like in the box that's in the middle of the page and far to the right. The rest of your boxes exercises look fine.

    Overall nice job ! I think you can continue to the 250 boxes challenge.

    Hi, great job on the lines and elipses exercises, I don't see any mistakes on those.

    Don't worry too much about the organic persepective one, you'll learn the intuiton behind constructing boxes during the 250 boxes challenge. On the rough perspective one make shure to take your time visualizing and ghosting each line before you draw it, as some of your lines don't look as confidently drawn as in the previous exercises, remember to take your time with each of them, so you can draw them confidently.

    The rest of the exercises are well done, especially the rotated boxes one. Nice job !

    I think you are ready to tackle de 250 boxes challenge.

    Hi !

    Your lines exercises are very well done. Nothing to comment on those.

    Your elipses also look good, maybe try ghosting a little more before drawing them to get a more consistent second pass through each one.

    Your rough perspective exercises seem a little rushed, you are not getting strong lines like before. Remember to take your time with each line, ghosting and drawing it strongly and confidenlty. The rest of the boxes exercises are well done, nice job.

    I think you are ready to continue to the 250 boxes challenge, but remember to take your time on each line !

    Hi ! Sometimes your lines are a little wobbly , make shure to draw them strong and confidently, remeber to always prioritize confidence over accuracy. Other than that the lines exercises are well done.

    It seems you've got some trouble keeping your elipses within the bounds, try ghosting a little more before drawing each one. You got better with it once you got to the funnels.

    It looks like you had some difficulty on the first rough perspective exercise, but you got much better on your second try.

    The rotated boxes exercise is not that bad, you seem to have understood the rotation concept, which is the hardest part. Remember to keep edges that are close together practically parallel, and focus on drawing them more confidently.

    Moving on to the 250 boxes I would pay extra attention to drawing condifent lines, other than that I think you did a very nice job !

    Hi ! Your line exercises look very good, lines seem very confidently drawn.

    On some rare ocations on the elipses excercises you are getting a bit of overlapping, but overall they are also very well done.

    Regarding boxes, on the rough perspective and organic perspective excercises you are drawing some of the boxe's edges more than once, remember you should only draw each line once and stick to the result, even if it's not that good.

    On the rotated boxes one keep in mind that the edges of different boxes that are close to each other should be parallel, it looks like you got it once you worked on the bottom right corner.

    Great job ! I think you can continue on to the 250 boxes challenge

    Thanks so much guys ! I really appreciate your comments. I've already tried ghosting more calmy and drawing lines more confidently and can certainly see the difference.

    Thanks !

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).
