I agree with Loopkin.

On your rotated boxes you have quite a lot of parallel lines. As the boxes rotate the vp should move. Take look at this section again https://drawabox.com/lesson/1/16/rotation for when you do warm ups. As Loopkin says, this exercise is really hard and you aren't meant to get it right yet. It's there to introduce you to the concepts of 3d space and using lines you've already drawn to work out where the next one should go.

Good luck on your 250 boxes!

Hi Loopylizard,

It's good that you have developed the critique for the rotated boxes! Mine was quite short...

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.
