I'm glad I could help. I hope all goes well with the lesson you're working on, textures are a bit tricky.

Oh, by the way. If you can, add a link here with pictures of the correction task so I can mark your lesson as complete.

Hope you are having a good day!

Chayota Happy new year, I didn't understand maybe I didn't read right or did it when asleep, here is the link to the new boxes, I found kinda harder than the narrow vanishing points, It could be because I did so many of the others, but yes you're right I've been drawing and had used more these ones than the others.

But crazy foreshortening makes me feel like idk going to full speed hahaha

Good job with the new boxes.

Hehe, I see you had a hard time drawing these.

Light foreshortening is always a little tricky at first.

Especially because of lines that deviate from their vanishing point.

I've left some comments on the images in your drive folder for you to notice.

You'll want to practice it in your warm-ups for a while.

Above all, good try! Move on to the next lesson when you feel ready.

Thanks Chayota, I will, I guess I'll had to look for someone else to review my boxes... It says that 2 agreements are necessary, thanks for your guidance and patience, I wish you a good drawing weather

Let's be real here for a second: fineliners can get pricey. It varies from brand to brand, store to store, and country to country, but good fineliners like the Staedtler Pigment Liner (my personal brand favourite) can cost an arm and a leg. I remember finding them being sold individually at a Michael's for $4-$5 each. That's highway robbery right there.

Now, we're not a big company ourselves or anything, but we have been in a position to periodically import large batches of pens that we've sourced ourselves - using the wholesale route to keep costs down, and then to split the savings between getting pens to you for cheaper, and setting some aside to one day produce our own.

These pens are each hand-tested (on a little card we include in the package) to avoid sending out any duds (another problem with pens sold in stores). We also checked out a handful of different options before settling on this supplier - mainly looking for pens that were as close to the Staedtler Pigment Liner. If I'm being honest, I think these might even perform a little better, at least for our use case in this course.

We've also tested their longevity. We've found that if we're reasonably gentle with them, we can get through all of Lesson 1, and halfway through the box challenge. We actually had ScyllaStew test them while recording realtime videos of her working through the lesson work, which you can check out here, along with a variety of reviews of other brands.

Now, I will say this - we're only really in a position to make this an attractive offer for those in the continental United States (where we can offer shipping for free). We do ship internationally, but between the shipping prices and shipping times, it's probably not the best offer you can find - though this may depend. We also straight up can't ship to the UK, thanks to some fairly new restrictions they've put into place relating to their Brexit transition. I know that's a bummer - I'm Canadian myself - but hopefully one day we can expand things more meaningfully to the rest of the world.
