Welcome to drawabox! There’s actually no need to redo, neither this, nor the box challenge. With regards to the challenge, if you still have the old one on-hand, we request that you submit it as-is, plus an additional 50 boxes (that more closely reflect your current skill level). Before we get to that, however, let’s see how you performed here.

Starting off, your superimposed lines look good. They’re smooth, properly lined up at the start, and, more often than not, of a consistent trajectory. Here and there, you’ll course-correct mid-line, but it seems like that the exception to the rule, so just try to be a little more mindful of it, and it should dwindle down. The ghosted lines/planes look fairly confident. The non-diagonal center lines of the planes seem to struggle a little, however. Did you draw start/end points for these? (It’s hard to tell because of the ellipses.) If not, that’s likely what it is.

The table of ellipses exercise is a little mixed. Your marks are confident, but you’ve not drawn through your ellipses a full 2 times (sometimes, not even 1 and change!), so be mindful of that. Also, try to vary these a little more – it’s mostly the same degree ellipse over and over, and the same angle one, too. The ellipses in planes show a good start. You’re stressing a little about filling as much of the plane as possible, I notice – you shouldn’t! – but you haven’t pushed it too far as of yet. The funnels solidify that theory, because their ellipses look confident. On top of that, they’re also snug, and properly cut in half (and you’ve even made an effort to up their degrees as they move away from the center), so all is looking good, here.

The plotted perspective exercise looks good. The lineweight here is a little inconsistent, however; I’m wondering if it’s in fact automatic reinforcing? Just to be safe, I’ll remind you that each line is drawn once, and only once, regardless of how it turns out. The rough perspective exercise has that too, so good thing I mentioned it. I’d guess that what’s happening is that lines are coming out wrong, and you’re adding more ink to them in an effort to fix them? First off, don’t; adding more ink to a mistake just makes it stand out that much more. As for why that’s happening, however, likely, you’re thinking in terms of a unit of work being one box, instead of one line, here. Which is to say, you’re not thinking of these boxes as a collection of lines, which you handle one at a time (much like you did in the ghosted lines exercise), but rather focusing too much on the big picture, and getting overwhelmed. Try not to. Solid attempt at the rotated boxes exercise. The boxes don’t exactly rotate, but you’ve kept them snug, and seen the exercise through to the end. This is less the case in the back (you lose track of your back lines fairly quickly, and eventually don’t even bother adding any), which is a little disappointing, but it’s understandable, also. Save for the automatic reinforcing habit, the organic perspective exercise looks good. Your boxes tend to come across as parallel (which is different from shallow foreshortening!), but they are consistent in that sense, so the increase in size makes it so that they flow well, after all.
