This is my first feedback and I just recently finished lesson 1 but I am doing my best.

Lines: Your superimposed lines have a clear starting point without any fraying. There is only fraying at the end of the line. The shorter ones are great. Longer ones are more difficult. I am not sure whether some of them count as wobbly. check if you are really drawing from your shoulder. Your planes are really great!

Ellipses: Your elipses are smooth and drawn confidently. I think they are exactly the way they are supposed to be.

Boxes: I think all your boxes show that you understood the concepts taught.

Next Steps:

You should move ahead to the 250 box challenge.

Great work!

Strong, confident linework and a clear improvement in your understanding of perspective as you progressed through the exercises.

Your lines do get uncharacteristically wobbly during the rough perspective exercise, but that's to be expected. Just pay attention to that during the 250 Box Challenge, since inaccurate lines compound, making subsequent lines even more inaccurate.

Overall, really good job! Get started on those 250 Boxes!

Next Steps:

Move on to the 250 Box Challenge

I do have an issue with consistency, but i'm working on it.

Thanks for the feedback!

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.
