Made it :D

Took 4.5 Months... I got faster in the end. All in all I still have some problems making complete straight lines, often you can see a "bending" tendency. This gets even worse when working a digital.

Sometimes the lack of concentration also hit.

I had the feeling that my understanding of the point of view and the focus points got much better, especially when I began to draw all boxes without a reference (support tool, shown in the course).

I think you did a very good job with your boxes. I can tell that you really tried from all of the scrapped boxes that you made, but I also think that it is something that is holding you back.

In addition to the many scrapped boxes, I noticed that many of your lines were redrawn and others were wobbly. You seem to have noticed this as well. Given what I see, I believe that your biggest problem is drawing confident lines. Remember to draw straight and smooth, and that a confident line is always better than an accurate one. Also do not correct lines by redrawing them, as this will make your drawing messier.

You did a good job on this challenge overall, especially in creating dynamic orientations. I think that you are ready to move on to the next lesson.

Thank you!

I will check if I will add from time to time a warm up, were I train the straight, confident lines beside of the normal lessons.

I think some of the very woobly lines were created when I tried to make the lines thicker, as required by the task (Line weight)... I often painted over an existing line several times to get the line weight... resulting in more messy and woobly lines

Drawabox isn't the be-all, end-all of drawing fundamental education. Our approach prioritizes certain concepts over others, and while we believe it do so for good reasons, ultimately it doesn't appeal to everyone. If Drawabox simply doesn't work for you, give Proko's Drawing Basics course a try - at the very least, you'll probably find it to be a hell of a lot more fun.
