Should I do some box exercises before starting the 250 cylinder challenge?

I've noticed that my box drawings somewhat fail to converge to each vanishing point.

I don't know how relevant it is to continue with this cylinder challenge. So I'm asking if I should do some boxes as a warm up or just keep going?

Yes, you're meant to be incorporating the exercises from lessons and challenges you've complete previously into your regular warmup routine as mentioned in Lesson 0. Having a lesson marked as complete simply means that you've demonstrated an understanding of how the given exercises are meant to be approached - not that you're done with them.

Adding to what the creator has said, it makes for good practice but do not overdo it. I think maybe a page or two should be enough for making a difference and warming yourself up for what is to come. Best of luck for the challenge up ahead!

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

The Science of Deciding What You Should Draw

Right from when students hit the 50% rule early on in Lesson 0, they ask the same question - "What am I supposed to draw?"

It's not magic. We're made to think that when someone just whips off interesting things to draw, that they're gifted in a way that we are not. The problem isn't that we don't have ideas - it's that the ideas we have are so vague, they feel like nothing at all. In this course, we're going to look at how we can explore, pursue, and develop those fuzzy notions into something more concrete.
