You may find some insight from watching how ScyllaStew approaches her boxes, you can find her approach here.

Other than that ultimately remember that perfect boxes aren't the goal, this challenge is just meant to help improve your understanding of 3D space. While you can (and should) strive to improve your boxes don't get hung up on the results so much that you prevent yourself from moving forward.

Oh yeas I watched those :) I find those essential.

I understand your worry there. I do make myself move on with the tasks.

The reason I was asking is my mind works in formulas and when I understand

things better I do them better. I make analogies and look for dependances in everything.

When I find the right ones it just clicks in my head and it becomes effortless.

Perfect analogy here: is when Neo sees the Matrix :P

I find it mostly through practice but tips and tricks often speed up the process so I was curious if you knew any.

Thank you for responding and for your time. I really appreciate what you guys do :)

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.


This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
