Lesson Incomplete

2:24 AM, Thursday June 2nd 2022

Heyo ever since ive started taking Drawabox seriously ive realized that i messed up with lesson 1 (at the time i didnt do the lessons in fineliners and also skipped Lesson 0) at the current moment im currently on lesson 3 and while ive read over lesson 1 and done the exercises numerous times and submitted work for the 250 boxes and Lesson 2 im still alittle worried that there may be some valuable critiques that i may be missing forever because i didnt do Lesson 1 correctly

Do you still have the work you did for Lesson 1? I would submit that for critique so you can get the feedback you are missing.

possibly although i did them in pencil at the time due to not knowing about the fineliner rule however I do have some warmups I could send into the community critique with stuff the Rotated Boxes exercises being redone since i haven't done that in a while

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.
