Congratulations on completing the 250 Box Challenge!

You did really well on the challenge overall. When I compare your early boxes with your last few sets I can see that your lines are straighter and more confident looking overall. Your boxes are drawn at a good size (they get really big at the end, wow) and you did your line extensions correctly as well. You also do a better job of getting your sets of parallel lines to converge more consistently towards their shared vanishing points!

The line weight you added to your boxes is pretty well done. I can see that as you progressed through the lesson you did a better job of making your added line weight blend more seamlessly with the previous marks. There is still some room for improvement there though. While your added line weight improves I still see some areas where you are hesitating a bit. When you go to add weight to a line it is important that you treat the added weight the same way you would a brand new line. That means taking your time to plan and ghost through your mark so that when you go to execute it the mark blends seamlessly with your previous mark. This will allow you to build and create more subtle and clean looking weight to your lines. You can read more about that here.

Finally, while your convergences do improve overall I think this diagram will help you further develop that skill as you continue through Drawabox. So, when you are looking at your sets of lines you want to be focusing only on the lines that share a vanishing point. This does not include lines that share a corner or a plane, only lines that converge towards the same vanishing point. Now when you think of those lines, including those that have not been drawn, you can think about the angles from which they leave the vanishing point. Usually the middle lines have a small angle between them, and this angle will become negligible by the time they reach the box. This can serve as a useful hint.

Congrats again and good luck on lesson 2!

Continue to lesson 2!

Alright, thanks a lot Scylla ;)

How to Draw by Scott Robertson

When it comes to technical drawing, there's no one better than Scott Robertson. I regularly use this book as a reference when eyeballing my perspective just won't cut it anymore. Need to figure out exactly how to rotate an object in 3D space? How to project a shape in perspective? Look no further.
