Hi, thank you for your revision.

First of all, as I said before, after drawing the center box, draw only two more boxes for each side. When you finished the boxes that sit on the vertical and horizontal axis, the number of your boxes should be equal to number in this example.

Secondly, The rotation of the boxes was too little. Some of the boxes didn't rotate at all. Don't forget that when the box rotates, the vanishing point slides and the convergence of the edges of the new box moves towards the new vanishing point. In this example you can see how the convergence changes as the boxes rotated. If you trace the lines, you can see this change more clearly.

Lastly, try to leave equal and small space between your boxes. You can check here to learn how to use the neighboring edges to draw your new box's edges.

I recommend you first read the rotated box lesson one more time, pay attention to the details, and then draw one more page. You can also check this Youtube video where Uncomfortable explains the exercise himself.

I hope this will be helpful. Good luck :)

Next Steps:

After reading the lesson materials one more time with care, draw one more page of Rotated Boxes.

When finished, reply to this critique with your revisions.

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something we've used ourselves, or know to be of impeccable quality. If you're interested, here is a full list.
Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

This is a remarkable little pen. I'm especially fond of this one for sketching and playing around with, and it's what I used for the notorious "Mr. Monkey Business" video from Lesson 0. It's incredibly difficult to draw with (especially at first) due to how much your stroke varies based on how much pressure you apply, and how you use it - but at the same time despite this frustration, it's also incredibly fun.

Moreover, due to the challenge of its use, it teaches you a lot about the nuances of one's stroke. These are the kinds of skills that one can carry over to standard felt tip pens, as well as to digital media. Really great for doodling and just enjoying yourself.

I would not recommend this for Drawabox - we use brush pens for filling in shadow shapes, and you do not need a pen this fancy for that. If you do purchase it, save it for drawing outside of the course.
