Great boxes! I recently finished mine so hopefully I can offer insightful commentary. I think a good way to practise rotating is having a visual reference! I mostly just used my switch adapter, tried to visual the three points and slowly rotated it each time. I think as you get better, you won't need a reference, but it's a good place to start. Also finding an angle that you can instantly visualise the boxes, for example, after drawing my three points, I generally rotated them to point upwards because it was easier for my brain.

Hoped I could help!

Next Steps:

Try using a visual reference for about 10-20 boxes you do in the future, then try without the reference. And find a comfortable angle.

This was definitely helpful. Funny thing is, when I finished the challenge, I looked at my xbox and instantly saw the 3 corner lines I start with when drawing a box. Then I started looking around it from different angles and it made me realize a bunch of things I was doing wrong. Reference DEFINITELY helped in this situation, thank you for reinforcing this! I think I'm going to practice drawing my xbox from a few angles.

Marshall Vandruff's Linear Perspective Videos

Despite their age, Marshall Vandruff's videos on Linear Perspective are some of the best lectures on all the ins and outs of perspective, and as an instructor, he is highly respected across the board. He goes into a lot of the intricacies that I don't touch on in much depth (at least, not if I can help it).

On top of being some of the best, his lectures are also among the most accessible, at the full 8 hour set for $12.00. There's literally no reason not to grab them.
