250 Box Challenge

So, bear with me as I've got a lot to say on that one:
I think that the biggest issue I've faced during this exercise was about understanding perspective: up until box 70 or so, I failed to extend my lines (and draw correctly) the boxes, because of a misunderstanding of the VPs direction.
I ended up going back to the organic perspective lesson and finally understanding that (and the Y method), which improved a lot this issue in the next boxes, although not always as I tried to experiment with various ways of drawing boxes.
The biggest criticism I had during lesson 1 was line wobbling which I think I mostly got away with on this one? I still occasionally have freak accidents but I feel like this is a mostly solved issue.
I've also experimented a bit with foreshortening, different forms and perspective angles, on top of drawing constructions. As I got more comfortable I added line weight and then ample hatching followed by tighter one.
Finally I think I've rushed a bit through the last boxes as I've gotten a bit impatient with the exercise, but on the other end I feel like I already improved a lot by the point I rushed and it would come down to mileage and not to process information in the background at this point. I do still see issues with line convergence though.
Thanks in advance for the review!
