Hi,

Are you putting your elbow or wrist on the table?

When I put my elbow on the table I see that I don't use the shoulder so I try not doing it.

When you mention "line that fit in a box" you mean the hatching lines? If so, maybe you simply want to try putting points first (like when drawing the box) and with practice removing them.

I do put points first, but I feel like I have to choose between hitting a straight line into these points or using my shoulder. I feel like I can't do both when I try to be accurate.

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
