Commit to the mistake. Ultimately mistakes are expected - but the mark is on the page, the decision has been made, even if unintentionally. Keep pushing forward with it as is.

Hey comfy, thanks for the reply.

I realised my post was a little ambiguous.

I don't mean redrawing the line (I know that one is a big nono), I mean leaving the line I know to be wrong but ignoring it's placement while trying to make the lines that it should connect to more correct or just connecting the new lines to the line I know is incorrect compounding the boxes problems.

Sounds like you're saying just connect the lines to the line I know to be incorrect and move on, have I interpreted you correctly?

Yup, that's correct. Our goal first and foremost is to end up with solid, three dimensional forms. Sure, a line might be incorrect, and may not converge consistently with the others in its set - but that doesn't mean it's impossible for a form to exist like that. It simply means that the resulting form won't be a perfect, rectilinear box. It can still however be a solid, plausible, three dimensional structure, as long as we continue building upon it as though it is what we had intended to draw.

Cool, thanks! I will adjust my approach for the last 100 boxes.

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

The Art of Blizzard Entertainment

While I have a massive library of non-instructional art books I've collected over the years, there's only a handful that are actually important to me. This is one of them - so much so that I jammed my copy into my overstuffed backpack when flying back from my parents' house just so I could have it at my apartment. My back's been sore for a week.

The reason I hold this book in such high esteem is because of how it puts the relatively new field of game art into perspective, showing how concept art really just started off as crude sketches intended to communicate ideas to storytellers, designers and 3D modelers. How all of this focus on beautiful illustrations is really secondary to the core of a concept artist's job. A real eye-opener.
