I just downloaded Discord app to join the Drawabox community but I have no idea how works or/and how to enter in a chat...

My name there is MayADay.

Could someone please give me some tips and/or put me in a group?

Thanks in advance :)

Hey, the first step is to join the Drawabox Discord server. The server is a big hub for all of the people working on Drawabox, critiquing others, sharing their art outside of Drawabox, or just chatting. I'm on a computer and I'm not sure what the Drawabox website looks like if you're on mobile, but you should be able to click on the little Discord icon in the top right to receive an invitation from the Drawabox server.

Once you've joined, you have access to the entire server. There are a few channels you can't type in, like the list of rules and announcements, but you should be able to chat in every other server by clicking the bar on the bottom of the screen. You should read through the server rules and have to agree to them to chat. A little window with the rules should pop up when you join. I've mainly used the Discord for the critique exchange program, but there's many channels with their different purposes explained on the top of page.

I hope this helps, sorry I'm not sure exactly what everything looks like on mobile.

Thanks for replying

I somehow managed to get to the chat.

Your comment now anyway is really helpful to make me confirm my doubts of if I did everything alright.

By reading your description i can tell there's not so much difference rather than the size of the screen

Thanks again

Have a good day :)

Thanks, the app is new to me and I'm learning step by step. :)

I read and liked how you commented on Hal9000 lesson 1. You observed and evaluated according to the criteria of what the exercises required, making a good point on what was well done and what needed to be reviewed.

I know you have just finished lesson two but can I take the opportunity to ask you, if possible, to have a look and a comment on my 250 box challenge? It would meant a lot to me.

Thanks again for the comment and see you again maybe on Discord or Drawabox :)

Thanks for what you said about my critique. That was my first and I tried to go straight since I am not that advanced on Draw A Box. Hope it helped Hal9000.

Sure I may see your 250 Boxes, but right now I'm on phone and it's too small to see it well. As soon as I have access to my notebook I will give a look.

See ya!

You're welcome, we are all on the same journey and don't worry we will improve somehow someday. I'm sure it had, he better now know where he can continue on and where has to improve :)

Yeah, sure it's not that easy on the small screen :o

See ya! :)

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.
