Hi thanks a lot for the kind words! I appreciate you taking the time to have a look at my submission.

I was not aware it was fine to use a ruler for the hatching, and I agree I tend to be quite sloppy with it. I'll use a ruler going forward.

As for the line weights, I tried applying them on my very first page of boxes but found it very difficult and noticed it decreased the quality of my boxes. That is however a very strange argument as to why I stopped practicing it, so maybe I should pick it up again.

Appreciate the resources! Will definitely have a look.

Cheers.

Man I know line weight bugged me out too. I kinda cheated a little and used a ruler for like 25ish boxes, and then it came more naturally to me, so maybe try that :) Ain't no shame in using an easier route if you are going to get on the main road eventually.

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.

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.
