Hi Lucas. Congratulations on finishing your 250 boxes !

Towards the end your convergences look very precise in most of the boxes. Anyways, I'll leave you two resources that have helped me and many others to get even better at it, which will help you in those few cases where your convergences are slightly off:

But like I already mentioned, most of your convergences look really good already. Keep up the good work !

Regarding some of the considerations of the exercise, It seems like you successfully followed most of them. (Clean hatching, confident lines, drawing through boxes, etc). But i noticed that it doesn't look like your are applying line weight to the silhouette of your boxes. Make sure to re-read that part of the lesson again and apply it to the next boxes you draw. But nevertheless it's not really the most important concept of the challenge, you did everything else right.

Great job, you should continue on with Lesson 2. Just try adding that line weight to your next boxes.

Next Steps:

Lesson 2

This community member feels the lesson should be marked as complete. In order for the student to receive their completion badge, this critique will need 2 agreements from other members of the community.

Hi Cerri!

I will start to work better on my line weight for my future boxes and study those resources that you provided.

Thank you so much for your feedback!

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).
