I would be concerned with there being far too many boxes per page. I am part way ( about 200 ) through this challenge. At the 100 mark I asked the question to my assessor ( on the Patreon plan ) whether I was cramming to many in because I was doing 12 per A4 page. They said yes, so I reduced it to 6.

This allows you to test yourelf with longer straight lines and will test your accuracy and visioning of vanishing points much harder, as well as making assesment easier due to better clarity.

Next Steps:

My suggestion would be to do another 50 boxes, but 6 per page and see how that challenges you.

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

Heyo, thank you for this reply too, i just got pointed that out today by a friend as well, i may have misread the challenge's tips. I'm definitely down to draw more boxes, and i may end up doing the whole thing again after the first 50. Cheers o>

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.
