  • Definitely more difficult, definitely not happy or satisfied with the outcome but definitely won't stop drawing boxes n cylinders.

  • Having a lot of trouble with curves and ellipses but found out on last 2 pages that I was holding my pen way too vertically. Holding it at around 50-60° helped a bit.

  • Textures also took way longer to get my head around and draw than I anticipated.

  • My brain melted at the Organic and Form intersections. I can visualize the intersections and cast shadows in my head before drawing them, but when it comes to putting them on paper, my brain farts, and then my room smells.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
