Hey Guys, I have a question about the 250 box challenge.

How do I know which side of my box is pointed towards the viewer?

You should read the complete challenge first...

I had the same confusion as I just started working on the challenge. I found an answer from Uncomfortable somehwere in the comments (scroll down deep to about 1 year ago) under the 'How to Draw a Box 2' vido: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlJ6rwj3PKg

Here is his reply snippet copied: "To put it simply, the box is made up of six faces. Three faces point towards the viewer, three point away. Pick one of the faces that point towards the viewer and fill it with hatching lines. Any of those will do, as long as you pick one that isn't facing away."

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
