Try to draw confidently rather than quick or slow and always keep your eyes on the line your are following not your hand. You will always be aware of where your hand is peripherally.

okay i see, so its just a matter of practicing a lot? i wasnt sure if it was my hand-eye cordination going out of sync or something im not sure so i was kinda feeling pretty hopeless after a few days of practice lol....

would it be feasible to go slow at first to align my curves and work my way up to more confidently and quick lines?

The answer is always practice. Slowing it down is fine. For one exercise I did some examples on paper and then made copies. I then practiced the same thing over and over.

Ultimately though it's whatever gets you to the point of confidence in the exercise.

Sorry! Late reply. Personally I find it is a matter of practicing. Also it helps if you can visualize where you draw your line as you're making the arrow. Maybe try ghosting a few times before making your next line.

Drawabox isn't the be-all, end-all of drawing fundamental education. Our approach prioritizes certain concepts over others, and while we believe it do so for good reasons, ultimately it doesn't appeal to everyone. If Drawabox simply doesn't work for you, give Proko's Drawing Basics course a try - at the very least, you'll probably find it to be a hell of a lot more fun.
