First of all I´m so sorry for literally just answering over month later :/ I didn´t really log into my DrawABox account for some weeks because of private events occuring but neither the less ,as I logged in today I was really happy to see a notification! Thank you so much for your encouraging words and compliments like I could not be more motivated to draw right now ,as I´ve been in an art block and motivational lack towards art for about 3 weeks ,which made seriously mad. So, thank you so much again for your kind feedback, really appreciating it. Btw it´s a funny coincidence that after finishing lesson 3 ,I started to make figure drawing for about a month to learn timed drawing and work against my perfectionism, so I guess I already took your next step haha :)

I'm glad to hear that my message helped and that you already had taken action before even reading it. That's great! If you want you could mix timed drawing with the exercises here. Drawing in the constructional way instructed in drawabox is hard to do fast but maybe try to keep it to about 25minutes. Again, if you'd like to do that. Other than that I wish you the best. :D

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.

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).
