Hi!

I am doing some critique for you.

Congratulations on completing this challenge!

You did a very good job!

Sometimes your lines are a little bit whobble, try to apply more the ghosted method.

Keep practicing with this, try to apply line weight next time and hatching.

Goodluck with your next lesson! :)

Hello! Apart from what Mike said about wobbly lines, you are having clear divergences on the lines of your boxes.

A box in 3 point perspective will ALWAYS have their lines converge. They can never diverge, or be parallel.

It is possible for them to converge very slightly, but they have to converge, even if it's really hard to notice it the convergence has to be there.

As you can see here on your 249 box there are some lines that when extended are getting away from each other, and not getting closer. Make sure that all your lines on each set get together.

If you already know that and still have trouble making your lines get together try following this tutorial step by step. That said, I want you to do 1 page more. Make sure you focus on all your lines getting convergence together. Good luck and keep up the good work!

Next Steps:

1 page of boxes, make sure your lines are converging and not diverging

### Staedtler Pigment Liners

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).
