I would say to extend your lines more when checking your convergences. It's also important that you reinforce the solidity of your forms with subtle line weight around the silhouettes, and to fill the front facing plane with hatching lines to better describe its orientation in space.

Next Steps:

I feel like you may have rushed a bit when doing this exercise, so I suggest you complete 30 more boxes, making sure that there's some subtle thickness around their silhouettes and that you extend your lines more when checking convergence.

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Pens from Drawabox

When it comes to getting your hands on fineliner pens, there's a few common challenges. They tend to be on the expensive side, with reasonably priced packs usually including pens of many different sizes (since we're only using the 0.5mm pens here, that means a lot of extra ones you won't necessarily use). On top of that, depending on where you live, it can be quite difficult to get access to pens to begin with.

In order to help with this, we are now selling pens through the Drawabox website. Packs of 10 (all 0.5mm) go for $16.50 USD, with free shipping in the continental United States. We tried pens from several different suppliers, and chose the ones that felt best.

Now, if you can go to an art supply store and pick pens up in person, that's still your best bet (especially if the stores sell the pens individually). But if you can't, these may ultimately be a cheaper option. We even test them all out before sending to make sure you don't get stuck with any duds.
