Thanks a lot for the feedback,

I do use a digital medium. I will sometimes get the lines I want on the first try, and sometimes I wont and just undo them. I dont really erase lines except when im using them for textures, or shadows/thick lines to get the thickness that I'm looking for..

However, I do feel like using an eraser in any way is wrong since that would be more like a destructive approach to drawing. I need to fix that.

I have to say, when I "finish" a construction, I tend to lower the transparency of the lines so I can work on pushing some more important lines forward. I saw some videos in the lessons in which this was done, I don't know if this is the correct method, but I really enjoy working through it and getting the end result

Also, you are right, I will definitely work on improving how I wrap my textures around. I will practice more with the texture challenge.

As for the intersections, thanks for pointing that out, I also felt like something was off. I will look at the examples again and practice it more.

Thank you, any constructive criticism is always helpful.

Glad to be of help. I just wanted to add that I dug up some of these resources that people made in the discord that show how forms intersect that definitely help me.

If you have the time and/or energy I'd love some critique on my lesson 2 or 3. If not that's totally okay. You don't owe me.

Staedtler Pigment Liners

Staedtler Pigment Liners

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).
