Congratulations on finishing your 250 boxes ! You did a great job. By the last couple of pages you are nailing the convergences on most of your boxes.

You successfully followed all the considerations presented in the lesson (drawing through forms, extending, foreshortening, etc). Plus your hatching and line weight look solid and confident.

Even though by the end you are getting most of your inner lines correctly, there are still some cases where they're a bit off, and judging by your (?) and () you may not be so sure of what to do on those cases. I recommend that you take a look at these two resources:

Both of them are based on the idea of checking the angles of your lines against the V.P.s , which is an additional factor to consider and something that might help you out in those few cases where you aren't sure what to do with some lines.

Overall you did a fantastic job, and I suggest you continue with lesson 2. But keep in mind this idea of checking your lines angles when drawing your next boxes. Good luck !

Next Steps:

ComicAd Network is an advertising platform built for comics and other creative projects to affordably get the word out about what they're making. We use them for our webcomic, and while they don't pay much, we wanted to put one of their ad slots here to help support other creatives.
The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.
Staedtler Pigment Liners

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).
