Here are the sketches I did during the 250 box challenge.

I believe I can do a better job doing the 50% rule. I was using the time for the 50% rule to draw on serious things that I want to use in my portfolio. They felt like work and not play and I wanted to avoid doing them. The more silly sketches in this sketch dump were the ones where I had the most fun because I was not focusing on making something pretty. The figure sketches are like a safe space because I have been doing them for a long time and I am almost always satisfied with those.

I want to draw more from imagination and draw more!

I want to add a disclaimer to this sketch dump. I am a working junior animator so I am already a working artist. I am taking the drawabox lessons because I have been told that I miss these fundamental skills to do a better job. I don't know if a lot of people will see this post but don't feel discouraged if you are truly a beginner and are on another drawing level. I am adding this here because I get jeaulous of other artist myself and I don't want people to feel bad.

Thanks for sharing. I think students on this site should be encouraged that someone who is a working artist still feels the need to work on fundamentals. It shows that fundamentals never go away. Also, it shows that you can have success without being "perfect" at the craft.

Yes, we can work proffesionally and still learn a lot of things or go back to basics. The fun thing is that you will always find something new or something you had forgotten about. I think a lot of people struggle with being perfect (including myself). Thank you for the reply!

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.
