    Your work looks nice. The lines are kinda wobbly at first but they get better as you go on. The ellipses fit pretty well. The boxes are not great, but they are gonna get better.

    It looks like you arch or change the direction of some lines. Remember to use your shoulder and ghost through the lines. Do the line confidently. Even if you miss the point you intended to stop at, the shape will feel more consistent if you keep the lines straight, out of one stroke. You can try doing them faster, it helped me at first to bot think and try to adjust the line as I do it

    You'll get a lot of practice as you go on with 250 box challenge...

    Your lines are straight and confident. The ellipses fit good, the first ones look a bit wobbly, but the ones in the planes aren't anymore. I believe it is normal to struggle with organic perspective. It will become easier as you get more practice and get more familiar with perspective.

    Some of the superimposed lines are frayed at both ends, but you manage to reduce it in the second one. Your lines are confident and your ellipses fit good in their place. Remember you are supposed to go two-three times through them, you sometimes do more than that. You keep the lines parallel in rough perspective. The rotated boxes don't look 90 degrees, but they are nice, keeping small gaps between them.

    Your lines are confident. The ellipses fit better in their limits as you go. Nice work.

    Your lines look nice and so do the ellipses. For the rough perspective you would get more practice if you have drawn through the boxes. Some lines there seem arched, remember to try using the shoulder and take your time ghosting. I think you will get more practice as you move forward.

    I like it. Your lines are really confident and nice. The ellipses fall a bit short, but it seems you noticed that as in the second table they fit better. The lines from rough perspective and some rotated perspective don't look as good as the ones from planes. Remember to warm up.

    Your lines are nice and confident. Remember you are supposed to go 2 times through your ellipses, you seem overdo it. Maybe you should try ellipses as warm-ups, complete the empty spaces you have left in those pages. Don't forget to ghost through them as well.

    I believe your work is overall good and it is fine to move forward.

    I like how your lines become more confident and straight with practice. Make sure you ghost enough through them, even if it takes longer it is worth it. Also having a good posture helps me. Your rotated perspective looks nice but I am not sure it is completely rotated. I guess you are supposed to improve this in the next step.

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.
