objects can be interpreted in different way

yeah thats one thing thats also difficult i get lost and it seems like theres so many ways to intersect these forms especially when theyre heavily overlapped. i wanted to do boxes that overlapped a lot more cause i thought it would be decent practice? but its pretty hard. If i wanted the smaller box to intersect the bigger one would that be possible? or does that mess up perspective

Better to start off with smaller overlaps as these will be more obvious how they intersect.

In general, at the start you have to make a choice about what is in front of what. After that you have to draw your intersection consistent with that choice. The size of the boxes is not particularly important.

Like the Staedtlers, these also come in a set of multiple weights - the ones we use are F. One useful thing in these sets however (if you can't find the pens individually) is that some of the sets come with a brush pen (the B size). These can be helpful in filling out big black areas.

Still, I'd recommend buying these in person if you can, at a proper art supply store. They'll generally let you buy them individually, and also test them out beforehand to weed out any duds.
