Hi Carror, Congratulations on getting through the 250 box challenge. Here are some things you did good as well as some points of improvement:

  • Your linework looks solid from start to finish. Hatching also looks good. You occasionally under or overshoot your hatching lines but nothing to worry about.

  • You start off making some perspective mistakes but they decrease as you progress. In the last few pages the only consistent mistakes are the back lines which are a bit off. This is very common and with practice even these should disappear.

  • There is a nice variety in the size and proportion of your boxes. However the orientation of all your boxes is very similar and it would be good to experiment with this as well. You can look at this example as reference.

Overall very nice work. Good luck with lesson 2

Next Steps:

  • Continue with lesson 2

Thank you very much for the feedback, and I'll be sure to take into the account the orientation next time!!

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).
